Bright Bullet Hole Targets???

Slipped my mind... What is the more generic term for the targets that have a bright color that appears around the bullet hole?

What are some of the brands...

I cannot believe I couldn't tell my dad either when he mentioned seeing them in use...

Reactive targets is one term for them.

A major source of objection to a free economy is precisely that it ... gives people what they want instead of what a particular group thinks they ought to want. Underlying most arguments against the free market is a lack of belief in freedom itself.

Shoot n See, VisiColor, and my favorite ... Dirty Bird. I get them for a good price at Fleet Farm or Dick's. The Walmarts by me don't have much for targets any more. Some of them are peel n stick so you can put them on a larger target. But not the Dirty Birds that I buy. A little rubber cement or spray adhesive will work though.
