Educational Zone #73 – Making Cheap Targets

Many folks ask where they can get cheap targets for target shooting.

Very nice targets are available on the internet, but when you shoot as much as I do, it can get a little expensive printing them on a printer.

I was at Hobby Lobby with my lovely wife recently, and saw a stamp that was about 1 1/4 inches square and it gave me an idea.

Here it is.

I also bought some black ink and use it to ink the pad.

My wife saves used paper from her job that usually gets thrown away.

I turn it over and use the back as a target.

I do most of my shooting at 50 yards, and this size target is just about perfect for my eyes at that distance.

And, you get that warm, fuzzy feeling of “recycling” all that wasted paper.

And you now will recognize those targets when you see me post one.

  1. I shoot mostly handguns at 25 yards or less. My favorite target is copy paper marked with a felt tip pen. I also make five paper targets about palm-sized and tape them to the cardboard and try to hit each one with a bullet quickly at 8 yards. Plain copy paper at 25 yards is fun too.
