    I've been getting my USPSA (Brown/White) Cardboard silhouette targets from Law Enforcement Targets, but shipping cost for 100 or less is now more than the targets. Comes out to well over $1 each.

    Anyone have an economical place to order these in 100 or less quantities? (50 would be good)
    Thanks

    The best deal I get on them is out of the trash cans after the match. All they need is 2 or 3 holes taped up.

    I scrounge cardboard shipping boxes and cut targets out of them.

    After our matches the centers are all but shot out. :)

    I practice with 3-5 stands. I use the white no-shoot side and the front brown side. I cut "white" 8" "PLATES" out of the backsides. I also cut out a few "WHITE" cardboard "POPPERS". I can have a plate rack and stop popper or a mix using the silhouette sides. White and brown tape makes them last a LONG time for 1-3 shooters. 50-60 is a years worth usually.

    At my range I can set up several stands, and sometimes a whole stage and can run-and-gun when no one else shows up..
    This works for me, Just hoping to find a better price.

    Go to a IPSC match and ask the Match Director if you can buy some from them.

    We buy them in bulk, 2-3K at a time, selling some to a fellow shooter is no big deal.

    Hoser, Thanks---I thought of that, but if I did it and then 5 more asked to do it----well, it would be a PITA for the club movers and shakers..

    I did find "Shooter's Connection" offered a better price on 100. On order.

    Same place I get mine. No shipping costs. Reasonable prices.

    I use the paper repair center targets from target barn and tape them over a USPSA cardboard that I trash pick at the range. Sometimes I buy targets from the local shop but rarely.
