2 pages of letter paper, turned sideways, is 11" by 17", pretty fair simulation of a man's torso,(the part that's worth hitting with a bullet, anyway) 9" paper plates do a fine job of making you focus on the chest, and 6" paper saucers are fair at simulating a head shot.

I also use old legal size file folders unfolded to full size with a sharpie drawn "X" from corner to corner. I guess this is called "Office Expediant" targetry.

What is the saying - 'shoot small, miss small'. Train small, that way when the SHTF you are more likely to hit a bigger target.

Okay good. Another thread of value. The continuous forms computer paper (torn apart) makes great targets.

"Aim small, miss small."

I like the paper plates/saucers myself.

Personally I like 10" steel lollypops for my regular practice target. For one they don't have to be patched, just touched up with spray paint and secondly they are far smaller than the NRA D1 targets that I shoot in most competitions.
