    Can someone quickly confirm that what I said was true? I'm almost sure it is, but not inclined to go searching for the statute or something.

    In fact, it's based on posters' comments that I have learned about such laws in the first place: MA and possibly some other states prohibit the use of targets that are silhouettes (of people).

    What kind of silly law is it? Well, it's in the land of idiot leftists who tightly restrict gun ownership in the mistaken belief that it will help with the crime problem. What more need be said?

    That always makes it harder for me actually. You can't see where you hit the shirt as easily as those nice round holes in the cardboard. lol

    I've been studying the NRA Guide to Personal Defense Outside the Home, and one of the things they mention is that if you were to shoot someone (defensively) in many cases it's difficult to see the bullet-hit. You may not be able to be sure you have hit your target, according to them (and I believe them). Things are NOT like in the movies.

    So maybe it's good to practice that way occasionally. We're so conditioned by video games to think (even though we know it's wrong) that the things or people we'd shoot will jump into the air, fly backwards, or explode, leaving no question they were hit. . .

    Here in MA you can buy silhouette targets at any gun store. Our laws are bad, but I don't think they're quite that bad. Some ranges do frown upon them and have signs saying no silhouettes, but in terms of legality, it's legal here.
