Color away guys, no problem at all :) kinda neat to see the creativity! maybe I need to take a poll and see how many have color printers and can print colorized targets?

well Chris, i for one have a color printer. Now i just need to figure out how to print my target with realistic holes dead center of each score ring! :D
Take a picture of a real hole, then just copy and paste it into the new target. You might want copies of several real holes so that when you paste them into targets nobody notices that they're all identical. Somebody might catch on. 😂 Maybe we should add a category for "Best Fake Target". But probably you're like me, and it's a lot simpler and faster just to fire bad shots into the paper target. :rolleyes:

On to something here guys. I probably won't get to shoot the target till Saturday the 30th. But maybe that will give me time to learn how to place my shots competitively. who knows, might take second or third.

Please, everyone post your targets as soon as you shoot them ! I need to know what to aim for !!

Good times, and God Bless us all, Eric

Greetings all,
I return to the shooter shack hat in hand and humbled. I initially saw bison 🦬 target and smiled a confident smirk... But as the blackpowder is known to do occasionally it humbled and reminds me to be consistent, so I consistently shot poorly 😅. It was still fun and if any consulation anything on the 8x11 paper would be in the Buffs vitals most likely. Here I give you 1 dead, 2 poorly wounded and 1 gets away unscathed buffalo target

You are a true gentleman. Not only is there one unharmed buffalo still roaming the range, but you have proven that cheating is never in your nature.

My faith in humanity is restored.

Well sir I would have to say, to print and reshoot such an event would surely be simple. Yet if we have no honor when no ones looking, we have none at all. 😉
No different than live match I say ya won when ya showed up.
