I see no particular advantage to using silhouette targets for the vast majority of shooters
Peetza -

I wouldn't call it an "advantage", but the silhouette (and animal) targets are definitely more interesting for many if not most shooters, and for SD practice I wouldn't completely discount the value of shooting a target COM, or seeing for oneself how hard it is to make consistent head shots, especially rapid fire. Those concepts come across better on more realistic targets.

I've also been to ranges where just about "anything" was allowed for targets (like huge picture posters of vicious muggers holding knives to the throats of their helpless female victims), and I don't care much for those, but I think it's more fun for kids and adults alike to vary targets and target forms, just like it's more fun to play various shooting games with reactive targets.
