hoping to find some online to practice with...
www.arizonashooters.com is another place since we don't know if you are on east or west coast this will give you a location in both sides of the country.www.arizonashooters.com
And you can try http://www.targetbarn.com/ Make sure you compare prices on the D-1s and pasters. D-1s without pasters just doesn't get it. The pasters make practice go much faster. Shipping is also another thing you need to compare.
I'm assuming that the real D1 targets are cardboard, but the paper versions are available too.
To simulate the GSSF matches, would it really matter which one you use?
I personally feel that practice/training for GSSF Competition should be as realistic as possible; therefore I would only suggest the real D-1 cardboard targets. That is what you will be shooting in a GSSF match. Yes they probably cost a little more and they obviously weigh a little more so the shipping cost will be more. That is why we supplied a 3 different dealers in different areas of the U.S. figuring one may be closer to you than the other and maybe provide a worthwhile savings on shipping. There are several other places to buy them as well. Perhaps if you would like to disclose what State you live in we could offer better choices.
I'm in TX, but I will compare the three places and order a bunch of cardboard D1s...
I just took delivery yesterday on a box of 100 NRA D1 targets for targetbarn. I'd never had any before; I just shoot at steel most of the time.
These were 65 bucks for 100, and I think the shipping was about 20 bucks.
I've never had them before, but I like the tombstone type targets. I know people have strong feelings about this, but I choose not to buy the more humanoid targets for my own range. I don't see any advantage to having them, and if I ever ended up having to protect my life with a gun, I wouldn't want to see pictures of my shooting range displayed in the courtroom with humanoid targets paraded before a jury full of nonshooters!
Just another defensive strategy.
I like the Osama bin Ladin targets ;I
May I suggest you find a piece of card board 3" wider on a side with the center cut out in the shape of a tombstone target, then paint it black. Now all you have to do attach and replace rectangle card board to the back of your black frame.
I have my black frame attached to a piece plywood with the tombstonne shape cut out and the dry wall screws are protruding out the back far enough to just push on new cardboard.
Sounds like an additional incentive to not miss.
Purchased from them A+ service and delivery
one target can last a looong time
i had a couple of idpa targets with the center shot out of them to the point that i just cut out the center (along a scoring ring) and would put a new piece of cardboard on the back of the target
sure i had plenty of pasters on the front target......
but when you are a titewad....
Squeak, Squeak, Squeak. ;f ;f ;f ;f ;f
Where did you find the best price, includng shipping, on D-1 targets?
You guys that only use the center of the target.....I just don't understand...its either I'm missing something by using all of the target or maybe your missing something by paying too much for such a big target that you only use the center of......
And I make my own practice D1's out of cardboard boxes whenever I find a supply of cardboard big enough to make targets that have no folds.
I've been using the same roll of U-Haul box tape for more than a year. It gives me cheaper, more flexible (sizewise), and stickier pasters. I just need to find an easier way to cut the roll in half. Every so often I cut around the roll with a razor as deep as I can...it provides two parallel strips of pasters.
Every so often I'll get a "real" D1 to check my cardboard template or make a new one. I'd really like to get a plywood template cut.
I reuse the targets until the centers are pretty much all tape.
I make my own. I can cut out and mark 15-20 in an hour. The cardboard comes from boxes I save that would normally get tossed.
They may not be perfect reproductions, but I think you'd be hard pressed to find any practical diferences.
