5 on the first target, probably 5 on the second, and only 4 on the third. Use actual targets or target paper and that will take some of the guesswork out of it. Typing/copier paper tends to tear just as you can see in your images.

Agree. 5, 5, 4.

I've seen plenty of people buy cheap paper plates and use a clip to hold them on a piece of backing.

Heck when I was a kid, this type of target and a crayola marker was the only thing I used to practice with or sight in with. Just go to the dollar store and you are set for a long time for super cheap.

Pro tip: Use a contrasting color for the backing, but not black since it will be difficult to tell where your strays go.
