Printable SBCL Dry Fire Targets

Post by DnL627 » Fri Jan 04, 2019 11:58 am

I may have overdone it. Thanks to Dustin's help with the scaling math and a helpful friend's Adobe Illustrator skills, I was able to put together a custom set of dry fire targets.

Attached to this post you will find a PDF containing all of the animal targets set up as a individual banks of targets and as a standalone target. Each animal is on their own page for convenience. Each one can be printed out at home on an 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper and taped to a wall. Just step back 3 meters and the scale will be correct for replicating what you would see at a match. Instructions are also included on each target as a friendly reminder. This can let folks dry fire an entire match in the comfort of their living room or focus on a single animal to hone their skills.

For technical background, the animals were taken from a 1/5 sized target and then scaled down to each one's appropriate percentage to recreate what you would see when looking at a 1/2 scale target down range.

I am happy to share this with you all and I hope other folks find this helpful!

I didn't have any problems. If you would describe what your difficulties are - or where the train derails - maybe someone can give you some pointers.
If you got a minute, you might want to re-install Adobe.
