Ziploc bags, Duct Tape, Corn Syrup, Red Food Dye, Styrofoam head, shatterproof manequin torso + white/shirt mask = SHOOT N SEE (BLEED)

An inexpensive DIY reactive target. Every item available on Amazon.

That's sick destro. Great idea.

My method works but is really ghetto. I take big orange circle stickers and put it on black or white backboard. It is not high quality but I can almost always see my shot placement. Another really cheap alternative is to color a normal target with highlighter. It's not that great but I can see my shots much easier upto about 15-25 yards. Neither way is really a good alternative but they work with minimal effort and expense.

heres how i make mine. works pretty good, and very cheap.
bright colored paper, clear tape, flat black spray paint.

cover the paper with clear tape first, then spray paint over the tape, let dry.

I did try the one in Bellmore; for FF, beats most others except perhaps Wendy's. That could be a tie.

I used to look shooting the spackle tub covers at calverton. Why did they stop letting people shoot them anyway?
Thats stinks because more then half there target stands are useless.. I thought may be I can do something similar or buy one of those cheap ones like $60 for there. Guess thats out of the question????
