I've used all the above except the floor mats. I've also used chicken wire with clothes pins to hold the targets. One is only held back by their imagination. My favorite is the political signs as they are light to carry plus cheap and easy to get.

The last two years I`ve used 1/12x2 ( space opening) plastic green shrubbery netting. Light, cheap, can see through it, lasts a long time. I use plastic clothes pins to hang my targets. My berm is wide enough to move the targets around, helping backing life. So far, beats anything else I`ve tried...tho all mentioned above work.

The state range uses the pink sheet foam board. 1" thick I think. Then they supply toothpicks for target holding. Some guys bring staplers or tape.

After using all sorts of materials, my favourite is the corrugated plastic used in election signs. The signs are free after elections, last a long time and a lot of shots (minorly self-healing), and take staples very well. If you can find the ones mounted on survey stakes rather than the wire frames, all the better!

Update: Just finished putting up the “horse stall” mats. Boy....those things are heavy! grin Target in foreground is the 100 yard target frame, and though difficult to see....to the left, just in front of the berm, is the 300 yard target frame. memtb

I like these too and you can pick up about as many as you want when the elections or events are over.

Spray paint them fluorescent green or pink to more easily see any shots that don't make it onto the target sheet.

Some outdoor advertisements at places like convenience stores and markets are made of the same material as campaign signs, sometimes of thicker material. I got a couple of signs years ago that lasted much longer than the thinner ones.

The local range used plywood backers that varied from new to ugly large holes.
Everyone that wanted to measure their shots would staple cardboard under their targets.
The cardboard supports the paper for clean round holes with no tearing.
Easy to throw in the trunk till it's used up.

Finally got to do some shooting on the “new” target frames yesterday. I used “push pins” to secure the target. That horse stall mat is tough, pins didn’t go in easy....but held “very” good. The place that the bullet (6.5) went through was approximately the size of a ball point pin point....entrance and exit point. Judging from the damage done to the mat.....it should last a couple of lifetimes! memtb
