    Question about a type of target

    On shooting shows on TV I often see some type of target where when shot it makes a big colorful blast in the paper, such as a black target that when shot leaves the hole where the bullet goes trough as well as a yellow blast around the hole.. Like this



    Is there a name I can use for these if I were to look up targets online that do this?

    Here are a couple of places that sell various items: Optics Planet; Brownell's; Tactical Store; Palmetto State Armory.

    That should get you started. Once you get a variety of target brands/models, you can do a Google search to find several others.

    I tend to use the Caldwell 1", 3", 5" and 8" targets out to 300yds. The Champion VisiColor units are nice, and they have some quite large ones. Birchwood-Casey makes the Shoot-n-See line of targets. Dirty Bird is another maker of this sort of "splattering" target.

    Wally-World usually has them.......the smaller ones anyway.

    Thier cool targets to use and grate your trigger control while on the firing line, but kinda expensive to use every range trip.

    Wal-Mart usually has them pretty cheap as has been said above. I like using them when I practice shooting without my prescription glasses (like I'd probably end up doing against a middle of the night intruder.) Even being near sighted, I can make sure my rounds are staying on target with those. Shoot-n-c are the ones I use.
