Home made multi targets
« on: March 27, 2016, 08:55:26 AM »
Here is my version of home made multi targets. IN a past life I painted signage and banners, along with building magic and props and FX for shows clowns and magicians. Which in a practical world means that I ended up with an excess amount of half full or less of paint spray cans and other wise. Along with large sheets of a heavy weight paper and rolls of brown and white paper. Since I'm dealing with sorting out and disposing of my parents belongings. Wife and I decided to lighten the load of stuff we have a culminated.
Since the local indoor range I'm a member has changed their policy on no more cardboard targets, I decided to use up the left over stuff.
Made up two stencils from manila folder stock, One from a coffee can lid about 6"plus dia and another around 3 3/4" lid. Spray painted them on the paper for a background color to place the dots on.

You will have to wipe the excess paint off the stencils each time if the build up is heavy, and the reverse after a number of dots when it starts to bleed under.
I use two different colors per sheet

I then let them dry

When I'm finished with the stack, I apply the dots. I went thru the shooting spares/junk box and pulled out all C-N-C and self stickies and used them up.




After this batch I went to amazon to find some target spots on rolls in different sizes.

Mega-Pack-Stickers-Adhesive-Targets-Wholesale/
Mega-Pack-4-Inch-Target-Stickers-Roll
Pink-Color-Coding-Labels-Round/
I picked out 3 different sizes The target ones you get one roll free when you buy one. Since it isn't clear how many on each roll I will post when they get here tomorrow. with the guarantee and the free bees sure beats the big box sporting goods joints.

It looks like they're well-stuck down to the backing.  Good thing too - don't want any MOVING TARGETS! :palm:

After making the targets, I still had a problem with carrying them in the explorer, so I made a tube carrier up

went to the local big box store looking for the cardboard/sono tubes concrete forms they didn't have the dia I wanted but they were  a lot more for the length then I remembered. So I hit the plumbing dept, as I remembered that Menards had 2 foot sections of PVC sewer pipe. well it was cheaper than the form tubes.

I had the GooP adhesive and hunted up a couple of old coffee can plastic jar lids, I GooP one to one end. and will use another as a lid now I can put stuff in the back end with out damaging the paper targets.

guys /girls in UK. Poss USA as well? - try asking at departyments stores for the cardboard tubes/boxes the window show materials come in.Thriow away 5" diameter tubes every 3 weeks.

Well more like "relocate to my car boot" rather than throw away.
