    i dont even remember the last time we went to the range, and i dont think even I could find them in my room so i'm not really worried.

    the last 500-700 i got were free, regardless :mamoru:

    Plus, since I'm only bringing out my 10/22 usually these days, i can just draw on other peoples targets....or shoot at staples.

    Maybe if you spray paint the page with some other color, it'll have the same effect? Or what if you hvae a different color page taped on top of another. :confused::dunno:

    1/4" lined graph paper is pretty good for targets, since you can make MOA dots :dunno:

    paper plates make great targets. Staple them up and shoot groups on them. Save your best plates as reference and you can write notes on them. Like date, distance, ammo, gun etc.

    Neighborhood children are free. They're reactive too. Plus they change color when hit.

    You could always get two sheets of paper, one white and one neon green cardstock or whatever, and put the green behind the white - when you shoot it, you could probably see some of the green.

    Our last targets have been in the $300-$500 range.

    But cars, dishwashers, propane tanks, etc add up.
