I've heard mention of half-sized paper/cardboard IPSC targets, for rifle training when your range situation limits you to 25-50 yards.

Anyone know of a commercial source for such targets?

I've scanned the online catalogs of a couple of big target vendors -- Speedwell, for instance. Nothing. At least not online. Have not phoned.

Thanks for any help you can offer.

You might try this site:

http://www.uspsa.org/cgi-bin/target_suppliers.cgi

These are the "Official" supplier for USPSA targets.

Arntzen makes very nice T-1 steel 1/2 size IPSC targets. They are actually about 1/3 to 1/4 the surface area of a full size. Pistol rounds splatter off the steel harmlessly if you 50 feet away. The rifle would wreck the steel eventually. A pistol caliber carbine would not hurt the targets.

The price is less than $20 each plus UPS. I made stands of scrap wood from construcon sites for mine. After a few thousand rounds a I burn the shot up stand and hammer together a new one in a few minutes. The steel comes with a 1/2 inch hole drilled for hanging with a 1/2 inch bolt.

Great tips -- thanks a bunch!

I should have mentioned I'm specifically seeking paper/cardboard half-size IPSC targets this time.

Will be checking out steel, too, though.

Also, I've since found these reduced paper silouhette targets at National Target Co.:
