Range targets

So what's your system?
Me: 18"X14" poster paper with a 6" or 8" shoot n C in the center applied over the range supplied target (taped on). I usually go through 4 of these each session taping right over the last ones...clean slate everytime. And...makes great cover in the unlikely event that I have a floater..

I make one of each of these for our Saturday at the range session.They can last around 400 rounds between them,more if you're having a bad day of shooting.Their your normal targets but after me and Johnny{Walker} get through with our magic markers,this is what you get...The one on the left starts out with 7 targets {25 after} the right has 5 {13 after}.

If I'm feeling ambitious I'll print a couple them and use my copier to make more. If I'm not or it's a spur of the moment thing I'll grab some printer paper and stick an orange dot in the middle of it.

I have shot watermelons. They can be fun. We can shoot things like milk jugs too as long as we clean up afterwards. Picking up clays over at the shot gun ranges can also be fun.

Dirt cheap. That's a lot of target for the money.
