Thread: Life size fox target

  1. #1

    Life size fox target

    I've wanted to make myself a life size fox target for a while now, to be able to stick it up at various ranges and check zero and practice make it more interesting then just shooting at paper targets. I saw a post on here a while back with someone wanting to make a life size stag target and I was made aware of a site called Blockposters.
    Following the instructions on the website I was able to convert my fox picture into a life sized model taking up 13 A4 pages. I then laminated the pages and cut out the outline with scissors.
    Then I just have some puzzling to do and bingo a life sized fox outline.
    I had originally thought of making a steel target, this progressed to plywood and now I'm at the cardboard stage (cheap and cheerful(free, Ikea just down the road)enviromentally friendly and light, easy to transport)

    You'd fit that on a piece of A5 paper!
    5lb larder weight?
    Must be a record as the smallest ever shot?

    My smallest ever, but it would have got bigger and it would be multiplying rapidly!

    The smaller they are the better the shot you are

    Great target, but nothing beats the joy of blowing a hole though a real "charlie"
    I love the smell of napalm in the morning.

    You could go to your local engineering shop that has a CNC or pantagram Plasma cutter and get it cut out of 10 or 12mm plate steel as long as you suspend it the projectiles should not penetrate the target.
