TARGETS FOR GUN SHOOTING
Targets are objects that people shoot at while practicing shooting their guns. They are available in all shapes and sizes as well as the materials of which they are composed. On this page I will address only paper targets used in hand gun target practice.
If you do a search on the Internet for shooting targets you will find a wide selection is available for purchase and or download. Most gun ranges have a variety of paper targets that you may purchase at the front desk or pro shop when you go shooting.
CHOICE OF TARGETS
I found that the best target for me was simply one that I printed for free up of the Internet. It is printed on an 8 ½ by eleven piece of paper and contains black target lines and circles but no solid colors. This way when my bullet strike it's the target it leaves a hole in the white paper on the black background who of the backing and is very easy to see and is very highly visible. Plus it's free, so you can't beat the price.
Note - Plain white paper plates make excellent targets. When pinned onto a dark colored backing it is very easy to see where your shots land because of the color contrast. Also, because the paper plate is not entirely flat against the back stop there is a space or small gap between it the plate and the backing. This depth or gap between the two adds perspective and seems to make the shots more visible from a distance.
