    This looks simple enough. Pretty cool!

          I have been using those splatter targets with the cover up stickers. They are cool and real easy for old farts like me, to see the bullet holes, especially when shooting 22's. I bought a box of 120/12" targets real cheap, at a gun auction last year.

            Too many steps in his instructions. Use any size cardboard backing, spray with spray adhesive, use one layer of the plastic bag, work out wrinkles from the center out, let dry, trimming excess around the cardboard, paint, shoot....

            Also if you use a large piece of cardboard once everything is dry you can cut it into small targets, because the plastic is glued smooth to the cardboard.

            Just my 2 cents[emoji12]


            RETRACTION: Don't use spray adhesive, you won't get the wrinkles out, they are small but the plastic bag sticks to the adhesive fast!

            Second when sliding the cardboard into a bag like he shows don't try and get the wrinkles out by taping the back, just enough to hold it kind of tight. The spray paint will CAUSE wrinkles. Once the spray paint dries you can stretch tight and tape the back thus removing most of the wrinkles.
            See when I screw up I tell you I screwed up. LOL

              Has anybody tried this with black bags and light colored paint? I prefer lighter colored targets since some of my gunsights are black.

                I don't see any reason why it wouldn't work in the reverse color.

                  Ok so now you will know how many missed the entire target.
