OT Gun Nuts: Free Printable Rifle & Pistol Targets

The Reload Bench said:
Printable Rifle & Pistol Targets

I have received a number of requests for targets that can be printed out on your home computer. I have collected a few targets, some in PDF format, and put them on this site. In order to view/print the PDF format targets, you will need Adobe Acrobat Reader installed on your computer. The Adobe Acrobat Reader is a FREE download.
For those of you who aren't interested in spending hundreds of dollars per year on targets and who have a good to fair printer can d/l and print a wide range of targets via the following; http://www.reloadbench.com/pdf.html

Additonally I'm experimenting at home with methods toward creating a McGyverized Shoot-N-See type target on the cheap.
Once I get that figured out, reliable and easy cheap I'll share it too with you.

Janq,
how are you experimenting on the homemadeShoot N'See type targets?
I love the link on the printables, but I've been shooting SN'S targets and I got spoiled by them. I've been trying to think of a way to make a DIY, but can't come up with anything good.

These targets were orginally posted at SigFourm.com by Pointman1776.
They are available for public download and use which I'm sure you folks will appreciate...

Pointman @ Sigforum said:
These targets are dimensionally accurate when printed full-size (e.g. 1:1 scale with center of 1" diameter and rings at the 1/2 inch).

http://ekarnoff.home.mindspring.com/pics/Pointman1776_Targets.zip

Packet includes 6 targets (thumbnails below):



Series 1: Numerals = inches, with and without dimension axes



Series 2: Same target, numerals = points, with and without dimension axes



Series 3: 2-up targets, numerals = inches, with and without dimension axes

ms,

I had put that project on hold in the attic and didn't get back to it yet.
It will get picked up again though as I'm all out of Shoot N See targets and don't feel like spending money to buy more.

Soon as I figure out a ghetto method I'll share it with my fellow Gunatics for all to use.
Give me a couple more weeks... :D

Here is a fun drill for Big Dot sight users.
At 3 yards the outer ring is just perfect for outlining a Big Dot front sight.
Your goal is to start at the bottom left.
Shoot one round per dot up the row then down the next row, then back up, then finally back down.
Easy huh?
Ok... do the sheet at a 1 second per dot pace. And only a shot touching the center black dot counts as a hit.

Get Your Free Printable Scaled Rifle Targets!
Hey guys, I've just finished creating electronic copies of 2 printable rifle targets with scaled silhouettes for firing from the various positions and wanted to share them with anyone who is interested. I shoot at a range that only goes out to 100m, so for me to get good challenging practice in with my rifle (AR), it's necessary for me to shoot at scaled silhouettes. Here's what I've attached:

The first is designed to be set up at 25m and shot with irons, simulating a 200m target for Standing, a 250m target for Kneeling, a 300m target for Sitting and a 500m target for Prone. (Note this prints on standard 8.5x11" paper).

The second is designed to be set up at 50m and shot with a scope, simulating a 250m target for Standing, a 300m target for Kneeling, a 400m target for Sitting and a 600m target for Prone. (Note this prints on 11x17" paper).

I designed these based off the US Army Alt "C" Qualification Target, but the range / position combos are really more in line with the USMC KD couse of fire. I added a graduated scoring zone (5 points inside the circle, 4 points anywhere on the black) to reward solid hits, but wanted scoring to be straightforward and simple (and the ranges are, to me, pretty long to begin with), hence just 2 scoring zones.

Of course the instructions at the bottom are totally negotiable, and noone has to abide by those rules, but they are the standards that I've set for myself for these courses of fire.

I know there are other targets out there similar to my 25m irons target, like the AQT used for Appleseed, but I wanted to design a qualification target that was simpler to use, printed on one sheet of paper, and required less ammo to complete - 20 rounds total seemed nice and manageable to me, although you are welcome to shoot all you like at it.

I also know there is no multiple target engagement / mag changes, but I've really designed this more to test basic marksmanship, and again, I wanted it to be simple and fit on one piece of paper. Also, the reason I allow any support (including bipod and environment) for the scoped target is that, to me, that course of fire really represents the absolute maximum effective ranges for my particular rifle (600m is pushing it from an AR!), and the focus for the scope part is on maximum effectiveness on target rather than purity of form (as with the irons part).

Final note - in order to maintain the integrity of the scaled silhouettes' sizes (representing a target 18" across the shoulders @ the stated range), be sure to select "None" for Page Scaling when you print.
