Cheap shooting targets.
Stop wasting your money buying these expensive targets. Here I am going to list 5 DIY targets you can do at home very very cheaply
1 Paper targets
We all know, paper is cheap, buy a packet of A3 paper, put a large circle up to the edges of the pager, then start drawing circles on the inside until you get to the very center. I would leave about 2 to 3 centimeters in between each circle. You can also buy them from target barn, click here to check them out
2 Metal targets
If you are shooting with a heavy weapon like a rifle or an ak47, I would suggest you do the same thing as above, but this time you cut a piece of sheet metal. IF you are going to go this route, please do your self a favor and distance yourself from the target. At least 50 meters, because the bullet can bounce back 🙁
3 Rubber target
These are great for huge bullets. How do you make a rubber target?? By simply cutting pieces of a huge tire and stick them to a thick cardboard paper. You are ready to go… Or you can buy these mannequin (dummy) type targets where you can then check out where you hit. You can also use ink bullets for these type of mannequins because they are expensive and you would not want to destroy them at one go. You can buy them here https://www.mrtargetonline.com/shop/rubber-dummy/
4 Glass bottle targets
Yes, these are fun, once again, make sure you are at least 50 meters away. To make it more challenging, you can hang them either with a tree branch or with some kind of pole that you create yourself
5 Sand Bag targets
Sand bags are a great solution if you have a shooting range close the houses. Because sand bags absorb the noise. You can buy these cheaply or you can buy the sand and bags, and fill these up at home which will cost a little bit less
