    I've got access to a decent plotter at work and figured i can print out my own targets. I just need to find or create my own source images. Zombie targets of course are mandatory, but I may do werewolves and vampires to.. just incase. There is no such thing as being to prepared.

    The fuck i would use it for is to print out normal fullsize paper targets like the ones they try to sell ya at the ranges. Like this one of Dog the Bounty Hunter

    I know they are cheap to buy anyway, but printing them out myself at work is free and gives a little variety then just the regular bullseye.

    I had thought about this. I print out standard rifle targets on my laser printer. My company was pitching an old ink jet plotter and I thought about taking it for making targets and other assorted stuff. The more I thought about it the more I realized that 1. paper needs to be bought in large rolls 2. ink cartridges are expensive as hell 3. motherfucker is huge. When I weighed all that in, I figured it would be just as simple to buy the ipsc style targets I was looking to print.

    When I'm at the pistol bay at my club using the chrono or sighting in a gun, all I bring is a handfull of paper from the copier and a red sharpie. I'll let our weekend warriors pay a $1 a target.

    Being MD, I get access to the action bays and have the key/combo to our TCU's. I could build an entire course of fire if I like and shoot it. Mostly we just set up a plethora of steel plates and the plate rack and hose.

    I'm a graphic artist so yes I print my own targets. I'm limited to your std. letter size (8.5x11) and tabloid (11x17) but I've made a few and print them out as needed.

    If anyone wants a pdf let me know and I can email 'em to you. Or if any OT guru's want to post the pdf's for WMD'ers to download for free I'd be fine with that.

    Werewolf targets would be great for training. You're fooling yourself if you think otherwise.

    Nah, my printouts are nothing compared to what they waste ink/paper on. My boss is cool with it.
