View Full Version : Targets! Lots of free targets at these sites!

March 31, 2008, 07:42 PM
I have accumulated several websites that have many free targets. I thought I would share them with you. :)

Good Post, those who wanna print them off, I suggest buying some heavier duty paper for the printer. Makes the target a little more durable, doesn't tear as easy as regular printer paper:D

March 31, 2008, 08:26 PM
Good stuff... Thanks for sharing.

March 31, 2008, 08:41 PM
good post, almost deserves a sticky...

March 31, 2008, 09:54 PM
These are a real good for building your skills. The 2-4 MOA targets are a real challenge.


April 1, 2008, 03:40 AM
Thanks guys.

Photobucket doesn't allow PDF files. So...

I cut out a half inch all the way around these. So, just be sure your margins are set to half inch.
Right click, and "Save Picture As..."
Print it from a picture viewer with half inch margins, header and footer.

My bored night with a drawing program...

One inch squares.

One inch and half inch squares. Blue lines, red dot.

good post, almost deserves a sticky...

I would almost second that notion...

April 19, 2008, 07:27 AM
Put me down for a plus three on the sticky.

I knew about a couple of the sites but the others are terrific too.

REALLY good post - add me to the "vote for a sticky" list.

April 19, 2008, 06:17 PM
Sticky this thread please!

April 19, 2008, 06:37 PM
Thank You :D

April 19, 2008, 06:46 PM
Cool. I always keep a stash of targets in my truck. I'll be hitting the working printer on Monday!

April 19, 2008, 06:50 PM
Nice stuff! My printer is already working. The boy and I are dialing in 4 rifles tomorrow.

April 19, 2008, 10:53 PM
Yes, please sticky!! I'm in the process of moving and my printer paper has been packed already.

Thanks for the post.

April 20, 2008, 03:26 AM
I can UL them here. LOL

Sorry for the jpgs.
Use them if you need to tho. I'll leave them up.

Open these with the free PDF viewer, and just click print.

April 20, 2008, 03:27 AM
I can only add three per post.
Here's two more...

Since we all use targets, making this a sticky is a good idea. Since it is in the "accessory" category and not specifically rifles or handguns, I'll sticky it in the Gear and Accessories forum.

April 20, 2008, 01:44 PM
Thanks, Mal. Now I dont have to search high and low for this thread next month before I go to the range again.

April 22, 2008, 08:14 PM
That sure is nice thanks

November 26, 2008, 06:23 PM
thank U 4 sharing

November 28, 2008, 07:07 AM
I thought I would bring this back to life for the newer folks here as you know some one some where has just missed a big deer and is wondering if it was them or the firearm:D

(as my brother-in-law always says "it's the rifle! I shoot straight")

November 28, 2008, 09:56 AM
thank you for posting these,and making it a sticky. much appreciated.

i've printed a few different types so far. and its much easier and cheaper than buying them. even though they are only on 8.5x11 paper. it still works like it should. i used a few just the other day at the range for my muzzleloaders.

November 28, 2008, 09:59 AM
also , midwayusa.com offers some free target downloads as well



January 4, 2009, 02:01 PM
Does anyone have the pistol target that shows what you can do to correct your shot. I remember seeing it on here a while back.

February 11, 2009, 09:18 AM

February 11, 2009, 09:22 AM

Excellent post! Thanks for sharing!

Love those zombies!!!

January 15, 2010, 04:46 AM
Yea i wish they had those zombies in my local store


January 15, 2010, 07:43 AM
Good resource- thanks

February 23, 2010, 10:37 AM
To make this even more fun, go to you local Post Office and grab up a stack of the LARGE BLANK printable labels for "Click n Ship" that can peel and stick. Each one is a half page of paper 2 per page and can be printed on with most ink jet and laser printers. I find them super to make .22lr targets that are easy to stick and peel to the post board with no tape or staple guns needed. You can also order click n ship lables at uspo online, but they charge you, Post office lobbys there are no charges. to make larger targets, just print the whole page for one target and stick together on the backing board.

February 23, 2010, 10:49 AM
These are the zombie targets (http://www.letargets.com/estylez_ps.aspx?searchmode=category&searchcatcontext=~010000~010100~010106)I use (sadly not free, but they're life-sized and full colour).

October 3, 2010, 10:45 PM
thanks for the links!!!
p.s. 2 dont work anymore

December 4, 2010, 04:43 AM
Hi everyone just wanted to submit a link to my website that has free targets. Let me know what you think.

Free Targets (http://www.combatshop.ca/free-downloadable-pdf-targets.html)

December 9, 2010, 07:51 PM
love the zombies! I would laugh so hard if I was an hour into a day at the range and one of those unexpectedly went flying down the line next to me :D man thats funny!!!
and brilliant on the post office labels I am all over that..

July 2, 2011, 01:03 AM
hey thanks

December 8, 2011, 08:06 PM
Thanks for your link

December 18, 2011, 10:47 PM
Thank you so much! :D

March 20, 2012, 09:00 AM
Old post, but I just wanted to say Thanks! and add a little bit to it if I may. The zombie targets, though not free, seem to be particularly entertaining! You can also print off zombie targets of lesser quality here http://www.etsy.com/shop/FUBARmerchandise although I am not sure if your supposed to.... I do!:D

Also a bunch of good ones posted by a guy here http://www.ar15.com/archive/topic.html?b=1&f=158&t=1120650 on the AR 15 forums.

July 29, 2012, 12:01 PM
Has any figured out how to make the targets that show the shot in another color?

If I printed a target then stacked it on red paper, would the red show when a shot was fired?

The bullet is going to penetrate both the target and the red paper, so at most, you're only going to see flecks of the red peeking through the hole.

You can get reactive targets, like the ones made by "Shoot-N-C". These have a black layer over a colored layer. When hit by a bullet, some of the black layer surrounding the bullet hole flakes off, exposing the colored layer underneath:

Very thoughtful post. Thanks.

August 30, 2012, 12:39 AM
nice thread .. tag for later

October 11, 2012, 07:50 PM
Here is a good one I like where you can make your own design.


January 20, 2013, 03:19 AM
www.remington.com has them too..
I print them on normal paper, then use the colour copier to copy them onto cardboard.. works a treat!

March 25, 2013, 10:15 AM
Here's one I really like (hope the attachment works)

July 14, 2014, 02:20 AM
great share!! My brother in law works as an architectural drafter. Gonna see if he can print some of these for me!

November 15, 2014, 12:44 PM

For more than a decade I have been printing this free image. They work well for the 100 yard ranges near the city of Seattle.


But for target practice where I hunt, 900 miles from Seattle, I have been using store bought targets. These cost $100/100. That sounds like a lot of money until you figure your time to check out a target.

Really old thread but didn't see where any paper for printing was. I got some.

What is the point of those heavy lines? As for paper in your own printer, I got a package of 13x19 HP presentation paper years ago thinking it was a matt paper. Bit heavier than reg typewriter paper. have to try it!

September 3, 2017, 10:23 PM
Where can I buy cheap printer ink???? LOL

I was just looking at a place yesterday but don't recall where it was. I tried inexpensive ink and didn't go all that well. Ran out of ink and no clue it happened till photo's started coming out bad. The tanks you get sound expensive but they really aren't. The multi color tanks are expensive as one color runs out and you throw what's left in the other colors out as well. I have a Canon 9000 mk II and it come's with individual tanks, most inexpensive way to go. I also have a Canon iP100 with a black tank and three color tank. Ink is only expensive until you see how far a tank really goes. Printer can be had for next to nothing, certainly the expect to make money on the ink but gotta wonder. If someone was to print only target's and then use only black ink, how much could they really make? You can get a printer for target's for around $50, look in the Bi Mart or Walmart type store.

I have made my own target's for years, always figured store bought were a waste of money. Recently I found on Mossberg's site they have free target's to print out that aren't to bad. Printed up a few of each. The aiming point on them is to small to shoot a couple of my rifles but I got a package of those stick on orange dot in 2" to stick on and problem solved.

September 4, 2017, 04:33 PM
Yes. Ink. A lot of these targets are heavy on black ink. I think you can put the PDF files into a thumb drive and take them to Kinko's and have a master laser printed. Once you have that, you can use a copier to make the rest. If you want to use some form of tagboard, the Kinko's people can direct you to a copier that will work with it. (Amazon has that in various weights and colors. DO NOT presume you can tell how heavy the paper you order will be by the usual bond pound numbers as they are different for tagboard. This is because the base page dimensions for bond are 17"×22", while for tagboard (aka, tag paper) it is 24"×36", and thus the standard 500 sheet ream of tagboard weighs more than a ream of equal weight/in² bond. Also, to confuse things further, the two don't have the same density. So, best just to look it up on a table (http://www.casepaper.com/resources/charts/paper-thickness-caliper/?doing_wp_cron=1504560011.4906799793243408203125)).

I've attached my Garand sighting targets. The last two pages are meant to be stitched together using a ruler to set the top as indicated to get you out to 600 yard POI at the line crossings.
