Free targets backers

Today I knocked on a stranger's door.

"Yeah?"

"Hey mister, do you still want that sign on the ground?

"No."

"Mind if I take it?"

"Go ahead."

"Thanks!"

New target backer. Great for those of us in the countryside.

Do you only collect those for candidates you voted against, or is this non-partisan target backing?

Maybe go to where all the signs all displayed in one place and get a dozen at one stop?

I've been saving frozen pizza trays for 50' shooting. Dollar store paper plates and a roll of art paper works for me.

Unclenick - I grabbed only one political sign and a couple of advertising signs. Another fellow told me I could have his signs. I'm apolotical (Switzerland) when it comes to target backers. As to the political sign, it was for a county commissioner for the next county over (so I don't know their politics).

In Central Texas one competition club grabbed a bunch of the 3ft by 6ft campaign signs and turned them into walls for the IDPA matches. They worked great.
