    Everyone has seen the Barney the friendly dinosaur target. I like to shoot it, but some other people have issue with it.

    I like the dark outline and the fact that the lines can not be seen at 100 yards with the nakid eye. Ot prints out nice on 8.5x11. I find it more realistic because you can not see the lines and forces people to take a guess at where the kill zone should be.

    I could probably do a dark target with lighter lines, but it is harder on the ink cartridges.

    So what else is like it, but not Barney.

    I'd love to have that target! Seriously, Barney is outlawed in my home. Anyone that friendly and happy has to be trying to swindle you out of something.

    People complain about Barney, but are fine with silhouettes. Weird...

    Two questions:

    1. Who would have a problem with you shooting Barney targets?

    2. Why do you care?

    I was teaching some young people to shoot and they didn't want to shoot barney.

    They were perfectly ok with traditional sihouettes and animals, but not barney.

    I was tempted to get a colloring book and make my own target, but.....
