Shooting air pistols at (very) short 5M range I like the full sized combat targets shrunk down to letter size print paper. Any math wonks who could tell me about how far away a full sized one would have to be to look as small as the ones I have printed on 8 1/2 by 11 at 5M?

This post explains how large to scale a target for different ranges:
10 Meter Air Pistol Targets Scaled for 5 Meters

You'll need to measure your targets, but from there it's not that hard figure out how far away a normal target would need to be to score equivalent to your smaller close up target.  The key is scoring, not visual size, because you can change the size of your target, but you cannot change the size of the pellet you are shooting.

Ed you haven't even seen land mines. Get a 200lb mastiff and then look at the industrial sized land mines in your yard. Not fun smelling those, especially when you step on them or drive over them with the mower wheels. My dog fertilized the yard abundantly well. No more huge dogs for me. hehe

Thanks for all the targets. In addition, some I also use for the slingshots I've made and bought.  :D

So what is the cost ratio for printing targets as apposed to buying them? Has anyone done the math? Laser printer/ink printer. Is there a difference in paper?

Thanks for the wonderful selection of targets -- great to try different ones without attempting to buy a full package of all one kind/size of target.  Very much appreciated -- Jeff E.

I am having a really hard time with these targets.  I can bring them up on my screen, take one shot, and then I have to get another monitor. 

These targets are way too expensive...

Dumpster diving behind my local sporting goods store - came up with a cashier's trash bag full of $10 off your next purchase of $10 or more.

Can you say "free Splatter Targets"

Nice post!

I usually make my own targets. I print them on A4 (standard) printer paper, and I've made my own pellet traps, where these targets fit. I leave you here some pictures of these targets, and the link to my repository where you can download them and print them at will: http://airpressureguns.wordpress.com/targets/paper-targets/

Enjoy!

Hi guys!

Christmas is gone, but I got the time to put up some more fun targets.

These are some of the targets I use in games or "competitions" with friends.

As usual, they are all available for download (for free, ofc) here: http://airpressureguns.wordpress.com/targets/non-classic-paper-targets/

Have fun!

Happy Christmas and a Happy New 2014!

Cheers

How do you word it... "Air Guns" or "AirGuns"?
