Paper targets can be a great way to train, no matter where you are at on your firearm training journey. The fact is, they ALWAYS have a place for fundamentals. Even if you have a range full of our steel, we would still recommend coming back to the basics and working those fundamentals. Below you will find a few of our personal target templates that we created for our own use. We use these weekly. All you need to do is download (for free) and print on your home printer. Feel free to use them whenever you are out training and be sure to tag us if you print off these targets. We will be releasing more in the near future as well.
This target is designed to give any pistol shooter a road map to work on some basic drills. This drill can be done at any distance, but for new shooters we recommend 3-5 yards and add distance as skill increases. At the end of the drill, use the second black square to reinforce good trigger press and sight alignment.Download Target
This target is to provide a visual representation of what happens with modern carbines and modern optics at closer distances. Aiming center of the circles will result in low misses at close distances. To land shots in the circles, the shooter must aim at the black square. This is simply a practice target used for understanding the basics of height over bore.Download Target
This drill is to practice speed control with various target sizes. This can be used with pistols or rifles. The small circle requires very precise, slow shots. The larger circles allow an increase in speed. Use this as a tool when practicing speed vs accuracy vs acceptable hits with different platforms. If using a carbine or pistol with a red dot, account for height over bore of optic by aiming above the circle.Download Target
