I don’t have a design. But I’m a sucker for a variety of paper targets. Thanks for the link, Travis, I just ordered $25.20 worth (4 different styles, 30 count) with free shipping to check them out!  ;D

How about this?.... 10 shots, of course, one per ball....  ::)



Move it further out until it becomes a challenge.... or require the hole to be completely inside the ball ornament instead of touching it....

Oh, and Merry Christmas to all....  ;)

Thank you, sir.

I just threw it together. 

If I had more scope and scale, I could come up with something better.

20 yards freehand or 50 yards from a bench or prone.

Scored X,10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1. Lines touched count as the higher score.

This is just a sample. I can scale these up or down.

They actually hand these out to inmates. When they brought a stack of them down and sat them on my desk, I measured the heads and they are one inch. Took the whole stack home with me for targets. Now I try to get my guns to shoot sub inmates head.
