i can print my own targets
IN for target websites...
google for free targets, there's a lot
print me a shit ton and mail them to me
go to rimfirecentral.com, there's a forum
Oh yes, plotters are cool. What kind is it? HP at a guess?
If it is a decent color one then you need to invest in a roll of glossy for it! I've made some nice prints from high res images and an HP750. 36 inch roll FTW!
Thoses aren't that great...
I used mine to print the word BOOBS! in 30" print, then rolled it up and made a real nice bill of lading, and dropped it off at the front desk of my friend who works at an engineering firm in the same building 20 floors below me... Took him the better part of an afternoon to figure out who sent it to him.
HP Designjet 800 that takes a 48" paper roll, and its loaded w/ a roll, ink, and on the network already installed drivers to print to it.
i work with a plotter all day long (xerox engineering systems) and i NEVER even thought to do this
i should do it on my last day
Nice! 800's are badass. My last job had the 750 i plotted posters on and the marketing dept had the glossy. The place I'm at now has a 750c for bond prints and an 800 for the vellum stuff. Saves us swapping out all the time between prints for us (we keep a signed copy of all prints in the D.O. for recorrd) and prints for the shop floor. We only use 36" though since it's seldom we do anything larger than E size.
Anyway, on topic, what are some good target sites?
1050C plus here, just printed out a bunch of targets for this weekend
Why the FUCK didn't I think of that a long time ago?
i should of thought of doing it a long time ago, but the lightbulb never came on in my head. i knew we had the equipment, i just never had to use it. but today I had to scan in some floor plans of a building i'm having some network and phone cables ran in (we have a large format HP scanner too), and then print out copies on the plotter.
and while it was printing, the lightbulb in my head came on i was like damn I could print targets on this.
I printed the sniper ones from RFC
I have TWO plotters but I don't print personal stuff on them. That's a good way to get into trouble.
Hewlett Packard 2500CP here.
Working in an architectural office has it's benifits
yeah if my boss saw me with that shit he'd be like "uh, what the fuck is that"
We don't have cool color HPs. We have two shitty KIPs.
Those fucking things break down every week, literally.
i'm printing out some targets on it right now
Mines like "Going to the range this weekend ey?"
actually, my direct supervisor would say "thats pretty cool". hes the only person in the office (that i know of) who is pro gun. his boss, however, would be like "wtf"
Pro-gun does not necessarily equal pro-using-the-expensive-printer-to-make-targets.
I work for my father, and he is an avid shooter. If he came in and saw targets coming out of the plotter, he would probably ask me if I plotted some for him.
well it didn't work out as well as i was expecting. it took about 10 minutes per page to plot, and people would walk by asking what is making all the noise (the plotter is basically a huge inkjet printer). i guess its hardly used. maybe i should stick to rasterizing and taping together paper, but targets are like $3 for 12 so its not really with the effort.
