Do any of you guys have images of targets or websites that have big images of targets that you wouldn't mind sharing? I want to start bringing my own targets.

Any recommendations would be appreciated.

Thanks.

I go to targetz.com and print their silhouettes for drills on human targets at a simulated distance, but since I have a membership at my local range I always feel bad if I don't at least buy some 50' small bore sheets when I go there.

EDIT: Jesus, I didn't even bother reading the first response:o

Here's a couple more.

Honestly, when I'm checking out reloads for accuracy in my handguns, I just take a piece of printer paper and put a sharpie dot in the middle for sighting reference and I can see my groups better on the white paper than I can on a black target.

just use drywall and a marker, punches a perfect clean hole every round and is super easy to see

I guess this is a cool option if you just redid your house or something.

EDIT: Or are you advocating that he just shoot his wall, like Sherlock Holmes did? What would be the American equivalent of writing VI on the wall with bullet holes?

Thanks for the suggestions guys. As for the drywall, I don't know if I can carry a chunk of drywall to the indoor range I frequent, nor would I want to actually. Maybe for some outdoor wilderness shooting that's what I'll consider.

At first I thought the link said something slightly different from "glockfaq"... :rofl:

you always can also go the super thrifty way...buy target from range and place (staple/tape) paper plate onto center mass and get all your shots on the plate

you always can draw a cross on the plate too - Ive also used the same web sites listed above :)

works well, just make sure your range wont start a new policy....must buy our targets etc.

Quarter is there for reference. Not to be shot at. :D

When I shoot my rifles at an indoor 25 yard range, I typically just print a bunch of these out and post them up. At 25 yards it replicates a target at 100yards. :)

Speaking of targets ...

You know ... :rolleyes: ... There sure are a lot of political posters strewn along the roads these days that are just about the right size for a shooting target!

Most of them have a plain white or yellow backing, and I'd bet that no city cop will complain a bit if you start removing them this evening ... you know ... after the polls close!

Many of them are cardboard, but a lot of them are the corrugated plastic. They even come with a mounted stick so you can place then into the ground at the range!

dry wall is cheep and can easily be cut into multiple targets

ya not good for indoors but works great in the mountains
