Just came upon this thread on the appleseed forums which consolidated some target links:

What do you use for paper targets?

I found some great ones at Walmart for like $3 each for a pack of 12, Champion Score Keeper, multi-color green/orange really nice. Some precision sighting ones with small circles in all 4 corners and some regular ones with just a large center target.

I shoot the AQT targets provided on the Appleseed thread. Human silhouette with scoring regions=great way to improve.

I like these from Amazon (via Sportsman's Guide) (http://www.amazon.com/LAW-ENFORCEMENT-50-pack-Anatomy-Targets/dp/B0002558CS/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=sporting-goods&qid=1242718882&sr=8-2) - only $15 for 50 and they have scoring zones.

I hear the guys with .50 cal rifles use $20 bills for targets. If they can afford to buy one and can afford to shoot one, they can afford the targets.

Sweet tip, djleisure! I'd used those once in a course and liked them a lot. Didn't know Amazon sold 'em...

Most of my local ranges don't allow 'humanoid' targets :(

Yeah, that is SO LAME. Geez, how are we supposed to train for home defense if we haven't ingrained the psychology of being able to fire upon a human figure? Why would I go to the range and waste ammo if I cannot train the way I'm supposed to?

That's like renting out time on the racetrack and being told you can't go above 65mph. Freeway driving is not enough to prepare someone for full-on racing and all its attendant stresses.

What about the targets used in the magpul dynamics dvd. It had different shapes, colors and numbers. I think those are great. But where to get them is the issue.

I've had GREAT luck with Alco Target Company.

They have the same targets at the range and instead of paying $5 for 3 targets, I got 100 of them for $18.10!
