    How to make your own Dirty Bird/ Shoot 'n See targets cheaply!

    Hello! New member here, thought I'd join the forums with a present.

    Here's how to make your own shoot n see targets, I have some that are 30x40" good for long range shooting. :-D

    Much cheaper this way.

    First is to get a poster board in the color of your choice, brighter the better.
    (You can also get a white poster board and spray paint it a bright color, let it dry and put the tape over it too)

    Then put 1 layer of glossy packing tape over it.



    Then once your target is completely covered with clear packing tape, spray paint it flat black.



    Spray a bright spot for your aiming point. This poster is 22"x26"

    Target below is 300m .223 holes and I could easily see them with my spotting scope.



    You can cut out animal shapes or if you want or make a human silhouette and put the bright colored backing on the vitals like the
    Head and heart.

    You can also spray paint the shot targets with flat black paint and while you cannot cover the hole, a hit near your old shots will create
    A new impact with the black flaking off. You can see the old holes in pic below.


    This is much cheaper than buying the commercial targets.

    Close up of hits.



    Here are some new targets, it seems the thin orange poster board really pops with the sunlight.

    Here is a rat target I made. Great for BB guns. Once the kids are excited I'm sure they will cut out extras for dear old dad. larger holes are .40 and smaller holes are BB gun.

    Thanks for the tip!
    -I redefined trust between my wife and I. I bought her a gun, taught her to shoot, and made her the beneficiary on my life insurance.
