Got a last minute invite to the range this afternoon but I don’t have any targets. Anyone know some good (preferably free) printable targets to take with me? Not looking for any crazy drills, just some simple/fun targets.
Thanks! The ones at the bottom of the page on the Alien Gear site are interesting. Any insight into their purpose? Or just extra circles to shoot?
I consider it extra circles to shoot… however they work great for accuracy practice.
@Keith61 - I have several targets in Word format that I have printed and taken to the range. I converted them to PDF in order to add them to this post, so hopefully they show up below.
They fit on standard 81/2 X 11 paper and I just tape them over anotehr target that has too many holes in it.
With the “Large” one you can paste several together to make a nice target with several options to shoot at.
The one shown below I recently found someplace which I thought was cute. When I use this one though I end up going home after one shot.
Hope this helps
The cheapest and easest targets for me have been paper/styrofoam plates. With a magic marker or a spray can of paint. I can buy 300 plates for about $2.00.
I can place them in random locations and work on my skills.
Cheap, easy and can be always be on hand.
I usually print out some targets from mytargets.com that @Jerzy listed. However, I recently was told I can’t bring in targets as small as printer paper (probably due to people shooting the “new” cardboard holders).
Google Images search: “Insert Famous Person You Don’t Like” … don’t use this at a public range, though! Maybe for laser practice at home ;-). And obviously don’t do it if it’s the actual real person and not a printout.
My Range doesn’t allow to hang small targets. They have to be placed on bigger cardboard. It is not a problem, I’ve been using shipping boxes, have them a lot in my garage.
Pizza boxes are also great, if you don’t have targets, paper plates work fantastic
Usually you can tape a smaller target to the cardboard backer… all the ranges I go to (indoor) have tape at every stall (haha I mean lane, wow I’m tired) on a chain.
