Cheap target project using a Sam's Club product

I found this product at sams club its a great way to save money on paper targets. A roll costs $16.98. It 1000 ft by 18 inches.

Piece two together for extra large, life size targets. This video also shows how to enhance the target with DIY splatter targets. A short to the point video.

That is a lot of work, but if you've got the time, why not.

Paper roll isn't a bad idea, especially if you're just going out to blast away with a few friends. Maybe the guy in the video would have an easier time spotting hits to the center dot if he used a color other than black? I would think a bullet hole would show up well on a red background.

Still though, for my money I'll stick with this:

25-cents/target and I don't even have to leave the house or spend time doing arts & crafts to resupply.

Using the paper and marking it with a crayon is a cheap, quick way to use the butcher paper if making the splatter seems like alot of work.
Making the splatter pieces is a little more work but really didn't take much time at all . I store a bunch of ready made 4 inch squares in my bag.

I havent bought targets in many months as well.

Love Amazon.com. A great deal on a 75 pack.

I've been using roll paper for a while. I got the idea from a fellow shooter. I put sticky back targets on them. One idea for its use is sighting in where you need a lot of paper to see where your first shots went. I also have a roll holder/cutter-the same as in dept. store gift wrap desks.

Yup, great for the first shot. Tape two or three together if your way off. Someone also mentioned buying wallpaper at yard sales, also buying blank paper rolls from local printers.

Instead of packing tape, try plastic wrap and spray glue. You can get a big roll of the wrap at a packing store.
