I might not have mine witnessed either. I’m still planning on posting them, if for nothing more than fun, reference for others and a challenge for myself. I typically target shoot but this gives it more purpose. If they aren’t “official” I’m okay with it. Where I shoot, the pistol ranges get a bit more social, maybe easier to get a witness, not so much on the 50-300 yard long guns range. Not much but the bark of guns spoken there.

Will the targets you link to in the thread print out at the right size or do they need to adjusted. Would hate to think I am shooting at a 8.5X11 inch target and everyone else is shooting at a 18X24 or whatever size target. Thanks

They should but some of that would be down to your chosen printer and print settings. It would be good to have a reference dimension from rings on the master target chosen so folks can check their print outs are 100% correct scale. That said, I suspect every target we’ll be shooting will adhere to 8.5" x 11" format…so at least we’re all in the same ballpark… :wink:

I hope so, I can’t print larger than 8.5 X 11 unless it’s a tape together deal… lets not…

I can’t print anything at the moment as my printer recently 86’d itself.

Given how well everyone shot this target in all divisions, I honestly wouldn’t see the need to have it any larger…save maybe for @Moosecall’s shotty experiment.
