Here in SW Wyoming its mostly Open Range BLM. From my east window its Public Lands as far as you can see. We have "Gongs" planted over a Section east of my place. You can shoot out 1,800 yds. if you want. I shoot many matches each year and shoot up lots of paper in off hand pistol. I really like the idea of Home Brewed Shoot'in See Targets. Thx for the post.

I'll post pictures of them & how they turn out later after I go shooting a bit.

Well I'm very frugal with my shoot n sees. I shoot em. Use the dots. Shoot em again. Then cut them wherever there are no holes into about 1 in sized shapes. So for 1 target I get three range trips
