IDPA Targets

Can anyone direct me to plans for building my own targets (the same that might be used in a match).

Thanks!

I believe the dimensions of the target are in the rule book. I just use a paper plate, it roughly resembles the zero down zone, I suppose I'm a believer in the "aim small, hit small" school of thought. Paper IDPA targets are available through Brownells if you're interested.

Thanks. I'll get my hands on a rule book. Is there a website I can go to where I can get one sent to me? The paper is a good idea but I would really like to make some steel targets. I have access to my wifes Dad's machine shop and want to take advantage of it before we move (plasma cutter, Iron worker, lathe, milling machines etc.) I'm feeling crafty.

I also use paper plates, I will purchase different kinds to represent good guys from bad guys.

I usually draw a black dot in the middle of them, I am also from the school, "aim small, miss small."
