Half a Dozen Full-Face Targets???

Post by GrumpyOldMan on Sun Sep 27, 2015 8:39 pm

My last supply of WWII-era bullseye pistol targets without an X-ring* has honorably served to its end, and I just don't want to buy a whole box-a-fifty of new ones...Anyone know where I can order a small quantity? Preferably without spending $5 apiece or similar disproportionatism???

Based on the match announcements, I'm not within 500 miles of any local club where I could try to beg a handful. So I "can't get there from here" as far as figuring out a fair payment.

Absent a commercial offering for small quantity orders, any other suggestions? I would even participate in a group buy...

Thanks!

*Amazing relatively thin paper, NOT acid-free, and amazingly brittle, these were. Came in a tube of 100. Lasted 35 years.

Okay, with no matches in reach of what I'm willing to drive (at least when I've had time to wander...), this idea is new to me: full-face 50 yard targets. I thought they were all black to the 9-ring, and 50-yard centers were put on top for that stage.  But that's not so smart if the match starts at the long line.

You're killin' me, now I want a half-dozen of each! Last good long time and I have at least one cardboard ready for them.

Grumpy,
The 25 yd repair center has the same size rings. The black extends to the 8 ring on the 50 yard and the 9 ring on the 25 yard targets.

I just use 25 yard faces and recenter with a 50 yard center. One less thing to keep around.

Al: I knew about the centers. Thought all full-faces were 25 yard bulls...

jmdavis:  that's what my Dad always did. He shot enough for a while that he bought the repair centers by the box of 100. Well, once that I knew of.

Can't remember where I bought a pack of 10 SF centers, but those are pretty rare here. 25-yard centers are easy to find.

I'm set up with Al, thanks for all the info and positive vibes.
