Free Printable Targets

Recommended Posts

We take water bottles and freeze them. Different sizes for different ranges and skill levels. some of the kids bottles can get pretty small and hard to hit way out there. It gives a pretty good show for the audience and its easy to clean up.

I have a printer that accepts 11 x 17 paper. If anybody knows of any targets in that size I would be interested. Tks, ahead.

Want a 16oz propane bottle to make a fireball? Shoot it with a 50 BMG spotter/tracer into a hard backstop. Better be a few hundred yards off. If you happen to hit a bit high and blow the valve off it becomes a rocket with a random trajectory. Another fun one with the 50 is a 5gal bucket full of water, inverted. It goes off like a bomb from hydrostatic shock. Use a good hunting type bullet or a spotter, and ALWAYS be aware of your backstop.

 

Smaller stuff: Golf balls with any caliber. Ping pong balls are fun too. Eggs @ 175yds are tough targets and cheap. Don't forget pumpkins, but fill them with water first or they just don't do that much.

 

One of my favorites is a snowman with a bottle of tannerboom embedded in his chest. THAT is hilarious!

the small propane bottles for soldering and such can be done with a .22

just put them in a card board box with some paper and light it ... some times it takes a couple shots to go through depending on distance and all... but you get the fire ball when it does.

I have many rifles, pistols, and revolvers, along with a black powder rifle and revolver, and just one shotgun. Among all of this is new unconverted Saiga 223 Sporter which is a hoot to shoot! I have a shooting range on my property, and shoot a lot. There are no optics on any of my guns. I just prefer plain old open stock sights. I want to know where each shot lands. I use 8" paper plates for out to 50 yards. I spray paint them orange or black. I staple newspaper to my backboard, and staple the paper plate in the middle. If I miss, I can see where the shot went on the clean newspaper. I use masking tape to cover the holes on the newspaper, and switch paper plate often (if I'm having a good day). For 100 yard shooting, I need a bigger bulls eye to get a good sight picture. I cut out an 18" circle from a paper grocery bag and spray paint it orange or black. I constructed a simple movable wood frame and stapled a cheap tarp to it. I position this "wall" just to my right to stop my fired cases from flying in to the next county. I recycle all of my lead from my simple home-made sand trap for recasting. (Can you tell I'm a reloader?) Now I'm in the process of constructing some simple reactionary targets. All of this penny pinching allows me to buy more guns and produce more ammo. Life is good!

I was just picturing last night a folding steel swinger target/ bullet trap for similar reasons.

 

I have a large folder full of printable targets some of which I got from this thread. PM me if you want me to dropbox them to you.

 

+1 on frozen plastic bottles of water. I try to take a frozen milk jug and a couple slugs when someone is going shooting for the first time with me. It leaves a memorable first experience.

another necro-thread I see. well since this 8 year old thread has been dug up from the grave yard, I found a great way to make my own paper targets.

 

I bought a few brand new rolls of wall paper from a garage sale for 50 cents each, took a large cardboard box and cut out a man-size silhouette out of it, place the template on the back of the the wallpaper, and spray painted (bought a few cans of spray paint from a gargage sale for like 25 cents ea.) the target on that.

 

yes, I'm a cheap so-and-so, and I make no apologizes for it haha.gif
