Awesome, I bought some targets from Jon when this first came out. I can attest to the quality of the targets and how they were shipped. Very nice. I’ll keep my eye on his site for the GTA variety. Congratulations to all who submitted!

Will he or someone post something here when he has targets available? I've looked at his website, but I don't see the GTA targets (yet). Does GTA get some benefit from us purchasing these targets from him?

I don't know if it is possible, but if he could print out the NUAH targets, that is something I would be interested in, and be willing to support a fellow enthusiast. I'm looking at some of his rifle targets, for when spring rolls around, and maybe some of his targets trying to see if they would work for indoors. I already print on heavy stock, but like you say it would be nice to have a source for some options.

This is my favorite target for shooting at 100 yards. It comes from the NUAH board.

I like it because at 100 yards I hold over on a mil dot, and when the bright green bleeds out on a side, it's easy to see.
