I like these anatomical targets from LE Targets

I have to use a marking pen to outline the heart, spine, and brain because at 10+ yds they're difficult to see. Otherwise they work well for PD training.

I like hostage targets and targets with pictures of life sized badguys on them (as well as the boxes). They are hard to find, not very PC.

I like the Shoot-N-C targets stuck on top of various paper targets.

I usually go with a combination of silhouettes and then one of the big ones with 5 smaller targets on it. Once I ruin the target, on goes the Shoot-N-C.

I print my own target, usually on 8.5"x11" paper. I only use paper target when I'm sighting my scope.

Why is it that many ranges around here wont even allow silhouettes? Sucks!

Man targets with paint-filled-bubble-wrap behind it.....makes shooting that much more fun. Just take some regular ol' bubble wrap, a bucket of red paint, and a syringe. Fill syringe with paint, stick syringe in a bubble and fill it up until it's plump, then put a piece of tape over the tiny insertion hole. Pin it up, put a piece of thin cardboard over it then put the target on the cardboard. BAM BAM BAM, splatter everywhere...just like the movies.

When going with friends I like using the target sheet with the deck of cards pattern. Just a little good old fun to see who can shoot at what they are aiming at and tring to get a good poker hand is cool.

Anything with color change. My eyesight is very poor so at any distances the only hope I have of seeing where my shot went is a bright ring around the hole.

I like the Shoot N C targets

and the Dirty Bird targets

and I love the bright orange clay pigeons for both trap and outdoor rifle shooting

Uh...I think the outlines are subdued for a reason. You're not going to see a bad guy's heart, spine, or brain either.

I wonder if I can hot glue/or spray glue paintball to target for splatter effect.
Either in front or back of target.

Different color paint balls for different parts.

For handgun practice, I use IPSC cardboard targets. They are plain brown with no obvious scoring rings or bullseyes. Makes you learn how to shoot center of mass. I use masking tape to tape the holes until there isn't much cardboard left, then I use a new one.

For sighting in rifles, I use my own printed targets with a very simple dot in square pattern and several of these per 8.5 x 11. For action shooting matches, I use IPSC targets (of course) and steel.

I'm so cheap I draw my own targets on butcher's paper with magic markers. If I go to a range I just buy a couple of their silhouettes.
