    Three hundred full-sized paper targets delivered to my door for $116, a forty one pound package. I have been using this company's products for several years, and have been pleased every time.

    I also use paper plates. Nine inchers and six inchers when I can find those. Mostly I use the six inch plates.

    Me, too, especially when I'm doing longer stuff. A pie plate is completely obscured by my front sight past about fifty yards.

    I use the plates because they are cheap, and , provide a target that is in better size proportion to the thoracic triangle.

    Since I use a six o’clock sight hold, it works very well at distance.

    Yep!!

    Work great for shooting with hunting handgun, too. If you can put'em in the bottom of the plate. you are good to go.

    I go with the black and whites, simply because they are less expensive.
