Where do you get your IDPA Targets?

Recommended Posts

Midway, shooters connection, target barn all have them last time I got mine from midway I'd shop around tho the targets aren't expensive it's the shipping that kills you.

 if you'll talk to your MD most the time he will give you the used target at the end of the match.

You can save shipping costs by buying paper instead of cardboard. Size might not be perfect but it’s close enough

After every match I try to give away as many as possible.

I like using IPSC classic targets for practice and that's how I make them.  I got a left over from a match and keep it as a template.

I bought a large roll of paper practice targets on a Midway free shipping deal.

They hang ok on the indoor range and staple to cardboard outside.

See if your range will put up a steel target, then all you need is paint, until some yahoo shoots it with a rifle!

I picked mine from Midwayusa when they had free shipping. Bought a couple other things and slide the Cardboard targets in and still got the free shipping.

Good idea, though kind of figured with the expense of shipping targets they'd have an "exception" for them.

I was surprised myself. Midwayusa is notorious for not even giving you discount shipping on sale items.

After each match I pick up several used targets.  I have done this for years and have never had to purchased any new targets.

Here's a hack for ordering IDPA or USPSA targets from Midway I've done a couple of time. 

 

Wait for a day when they are have a free shipping promotion for a certain dollar amount. Normally it's like $50. The free shipping won't apply to the case of IDPA or USPSA targets, but if you get to the dollar amount needed with other stuff, the additional shipping they will charge you because of the targets in your cart will be something really low like $10.

Double Alfa has the new waterproof IDPA targets listed but are backordered as of yesterday . I ordered 50 USPSA waterproof targets and can say they are a better alternative to bagging targets and drooping heads.

I also pick up used once after the match . I'm cheap , more money for guns and ammo :)
