Bass Pro has a pack for $4.00. There is 10 or more in it. I am not where mine is so I cannot be sure of the amount. If they were expensive I would not have got them. They are good targets also.

I pick up the calendars at work in December/January.

A felt pen and some templates and I'm in for several range trips on a budget.

A roll of butcher paper from WallMart may be a cheep substitute.

Wrapping paper saved from birthdays or Christmas.

Remember to make a template from cardboard and get a felt pen.

Look for the kiddy fun stickers on sale at craft departments. I like the cats best. They cover a 45acp hole and create an novel target. Around halloween the pumpkin and witch stickers that glow are even better.

Cheers!

I use paper plates and a black felt pen & a little staple gun...

Sometimes I draw a black 1" dot in the center of the plate...

...and sometimes I don't draw a dot... just point and fire!

A stack like this here is like .99 at WallyWorld!

Also Big 5's occasionally has packs of 100 yard sighting targets on sale for pretty cheap.

Alco Targets I think they are in Duarte, CA.

You can get cardboard USPSA targets from MGM for $44.00 for 100 plus shipping.

I just print my own on 8.5x11 pieces of paper, bring em to the range, take larger silhouette targets that people have barely shot up and thrown away and tape the small printed target to them. Easy.

Yup. Just print them at home. Plenty of free online templates. Here's one.

Get the cheapest laser printer, some colored paper and print your own. A variety of targets can be downloaded for free.

For large silhohette targets, I use a roll of rosin paper (used by tile setters) available at home depot. It's at least 150'x36" for 9.00, Then I have a template I made from a Frontsight target. I trace it out, spray paint the vital area and done. net cost per 36x24 is under .10c ea. For a more durable target, especially for windy conditions, I buy white posterboard at walmart 36X24 for .38c each and apply the adhesive backed "shoot n' see" targets or tape targets on the posterboard from the printer (www.mytargets.com). Or just start drawing geometric shapes on the poster board with my daughter's art set, once she sees me doing something artsy-crafty, she invarably joins in to show her coloring prowess!

I used to do the home printing method, but now just buy real targets on real target paper from Midway...

I was probably spending more on toner and printer paper by printing them myself.

Or join a club(like USI in Concord), shoot on the open range days for $7.00, and your targets are FREE as long as you shoot that day.

I get the reject prints from the plotter at work. Still all white on one side. I recycle! Also use the leftover desk calendars.

Don't forget about reactive targets, just saying...

I hear that animal crackers or ice cubes can be quite entertaining for rimfires.
