    Saw that on a Discovery Channel show about police snipers. They put 2 balloons on of different colors. One color is designated the BG and the balloons moving around and in front of each other simulates a hostage situation.

    Yeah, the idea is not to hit the RC model.

    I always just used scrap cardboard or posterboard with magic marker or cut roughly in shape of human. Recently I found this
    I'm cheap too, free boxes and magic marker!

    I've used magazine pages quite a bit. You can normally get ones that show up pretty well. I'm gonna try that target program from CNET though, that sounds pretty cool and I can make pretty much endless copies at work.

    Since we don't have a shooting range yet here in northern Arizona, there are places here in the mountains that are used for shooting. So its not too formal, and people bring anything from paper plates, bottles, cans, etc. to target stands with silhouettes.

    For Bullseye practice, I print them. For matches, we buy 'em.
    For long range, as in rifle/carbine, I buy 'em. Need those to be large.
