Default Building a private gun range

I have some land up north, and after shooting at paper targets stuck to trees by the branches, I am really considering putting a small gun range up there.

I have a few ideas what I think I would need to get it started. I know I need a berm. My dad said I would want to use beach sand because I don't want anything with rocks in it. I think I read somewhere that I could use those chopped up tire pieces that they use in playgrounds. I would like to have shooting tables. Something to put your guns and ammo on while you are shooting. Possibly putting the shooting style chair/table combo so I would be able to shoot a rifle. As far as how to hang the targets, me and a buddy were thinking maybe making something like a frame on an stand and just stapling the targets to it.

That is all I have thought of so far. I don't quite know how long I would like it or how many lanes I would want to have. What do you guys think, any ideas?
