Easy Targets

6 03 2008

Everyone (and I mean EVERYONE) has seen political yard signs. During certain times – you will see hundreds upon hundreds of these signs of all sizes and colors.
Usually, it’s up to the person running for office to have these signs picked up after everything is over. I’m pretty sure these people will not mind you “helping” by picking up a few of these.

The most common are the 12″ x 18″ or 12″ by 24″ coroplast (corrugated plastic) signs and usually will have a simple wire-frame step-stake that holds it in place.
Both of these things can be purchased from suppliers pretty cheap anyway. Once you have a few of these – paint them with whatever color you want – if you want to paint them at all.

A 12″ by 18″ or 12″ by 24″ coroplast sign can easily hold 4 – 7 inch stick-on targets (which can be purchased from WalMart for around $6.00 for a pack of 5).

Once you have the step-stakes, signs and targets, you’re ready to head to the shooting-range!
If, by chance, you happen to shot and hit the wire-frame – these can be easily bent back into shape.

This is what the step-stakes usually look like:


The step-stake above is the most common and easiest to find since they are the cheapest to purchase. The prongs on top go into the holes in the corrugated plastic.

and come in a LOT of different colors:

So, for a little time and effort – and – about 6.00 dollars, you’ll have a ready-to-go target that can be used just about anywhere you decide to setup a target.
