Used to be able to buy IPSC targets on about 3/16" styrofoam sheets, approximate size 22" x 34" . These last forever and make great target backers when suspended on a pvc frame with some elastic cord. Anyone know where I can get some? I had a couple of them on frames, with the A zones shot out with about 75 rounds in each, printed on the bottom in 4" heavy black letters was "SHOULD YOU REALLY BE HERE?" --- Great deterrent signs to leave on your property where you don't need any intruders. ;)

I like that idea. The day after next election day I'll get some more campaign signs and make up some like that. That plastic cardboard stuff those signs are made of should work great for that.


I have some "If you can read this, you are in range" signs about 10 yards inside my property lines in places that are likely avenues for trespassers. Apparently they work, Haven't caught anyone since the signs went up.

If you can't find any, just make your own.
Most office supply stores have the panels.
If there's a Dollar Store around, they have them, too.
Just hand draw the scoring zones and, presto, inexpensive targets, just like you want.
And you get to exercise your creative side.

Plus, as you shoot the styrofoam the little pieces blow all over the range and make a mess!!! Styrofoam sucks....

Corex (plastic cardboard) can be purchased at any sign shop for about 30.00 per 4x8 sheet and cut into any size you desire. I have been using it for years and it leaves no mess and last almost forever....
