Whenever possible, I like to use silhouette targets at the range. Whether pistol, rifle, or shotgun... I'm generally shooting one of two styles; Bullseye or tactical. For bullseye, I fall back on the old standard.... 8" paper plates with a big black dot marked in the center. For tactical, it's silhouettes all the way.
Now, almost every gun shop sells the standard B-27 and B-21 targets, and they are great for training and practice..... but sometimes we just want a little more. That's what led me to search Amazon.com one day for targets, which led me to Sportsman's Guide, which led me to..... Law Enforcement Targets.
LET offers what might be the largest selection of targets I have ever seen, at some of the best prices I have ever seen. This time I kept it simple, and ordered a simple 'Armed bad guy' photo target with an extra feature... main anatomy features shown in a very understated printing over the photo. At the firing line, the anatomy features cannot be seen, but up close it becomes obvious what the bullets would have struck.
Next time, I may try the 'space alien' target, or the 'zombie' target, but more likely it will be the 'school' targets since I am a school teacher by trade. Not that self defense is legal for school teachers.... but you never know what might happen.
The LET targets are good quality, reasonable, and they are good to deal with. It's a hard to beat combination!
