    Cheap as well as creative and retired. Between junk mail and thrift store I get enough target material for an army post. Elmers glue , looseleaf, colored paper. Have never in 20 years bought one . Wife knows what week I'm going to the range by my sitting at the table with paper , scissors and glue.

    I'm new here and just stumbled upon this thread- thanks for all the target links, I've already printed copies of one that I think will work really well for rifle testing.

    Thanks to all.

    I haven't checked the links all out, yet, but I'm hoping that one or two are targets that work with thermal label printers (eltron Zebra type).

    Labels are 4x6 ( the standard opens I use are anyhow), and you can get ups ones free ( or could last I checked). They don't require ink, and you can stick them on an existing target, etc.

    I dug through the links and found a few that seemed to print well and easily with a 4x6 label printer, so here were my results...

    http://www.targetz.com/targetzlib/10142.pdf , http://www.targetz.com/targetzlib/10124.pdf , and http://www.targetz.com/targetzlib/10138.pdf printed very well.

    http://www.targetz.com/targetzlib/10098.pdf printed well, too, but is probably not really worth the bother. It is just a 2" black Circle on 4x6 label stock, and you can get that effect more cheaply and easily with stick on colored dot labels.

    http://www.targetz.com/targetzlib/10090.pdf also prints well, but the bullseye/ center dot is only 1/2 an inch, which makes it pretty limited in application, I believe.

    Just a suggestion for those frugal persons such as myself. I use anything that is 8 1/2 X 11 and blank. Scotch tape it to plastic election signs, and mark 5 dots with black marker. That allows me to see where I am hitting. Too big of a bullseye (black section) and I cannot see where the bullet is going through the yard sign. I usually mount 2 sheets on the yard sighn and that way I have 10 targets to shoot at. When my grandsons go with the targets get pretty creative. We sure do have a lot of fun.

    Would like to point out if the printer is well giving problems for all the reason they do you can also just shoot it.

    Self adhesive orange targets from Amazon on white paper is cheaper than the toner cartridges needed to print these "free" targets.

    All kinds of good ideas, but here is what I do. For sighting in a new rifle, I use white butcher paper with a 1" targ dot. For group analysis, I use a number of different printable targets, but I take what I print off at home to Kinkos and print them off on yellow or tan card stock 8 1/2x11". Usually have four bulls per sheet, which allows for 20 shots (4 ea 5 shot groups). card stock is stiff enough to provide good clean holes without ripping. Targets that I want to keep are 3 hole punched, and put in a note book.

    Reddoggm: Thank you for posting the homemade shoot and see target video. Old eyes, SSI income and time to spend crafting things all add up to make this a great idea. Thanks for sharing. GP

    Construction program called "Blue Line?" IIRC,made a ton of patterns,bought the 110 lb paper card stock, printed them on company copy machine, cost only for paper to print on.$17 for 250 pages if I remember the cost correctly. Now have about 1000 targets, thanks to my boss, (also a shooter) he bought the paper! Done for a while for targets. Good shooting to all.
    I firmly believe that you should only get treated by how you act, not by who or what you are!!

    If I may:
    If you have an office in your workplace that handles projects and has old drawings of specs and construction drawings you can usually get them for free to "recycle" at the range of course.
    Our PM shop at work will recycle drawings that have no proprietary info on them, I will take a couple of rolls and have upwards of two hundred new target sheets. a thick sharpie and I can see where my boolits are landing when sighting in.
    When I sit down to look at my rifles in the safe.....
    I can very consistently shoot one inch groups at 100 yards.
    When I sit on the bench at the shooting range.....
    I always wish I was sitting down looking at my rifles in the safe.

    Thumbs up with the paper plate. I am a woodworker and have about a thousand worn out sanding discs laying around. I screw them to a board and at a hundred yrds. you can hear the unique sound of hot lead thru sandpaper. Who needs a spotting scope..
