Rain Bags

Recommended Posts

Just wondering where can you get the correct size clear bag to cover up IDPA targets in the rain? Dry cleaning bags look way to big and the fancy covers are to expensive.

Thanks

When I have to set up and staple targets when rain is eminent I have had good luck with a clear bag from McMaster-Carr item # 4166T12 . It is 1 mil thick 48" circumference and 40" tall . 100 bags per roll . They are not inexpensive but fit is perfect.

I just the cheapest clear garbage bags.

I always used the same until a match this year where they bought bags from uline. They were thicker and a shooter could just pull it up while another pasted then just drop it. I now think that’s the way to go.

I'm not sure if they were from uline but I've been at matches that had "nice bags" that were thicker and it was a lot easier (and faster) to reset a stage than with the cheap garbage bag covers.

Or dry cleaning bags. They get wet inside and start clinging to targets. Also with dry cleaning bags you run the risk of other calamities. I got a box one winter from a dry cleaner and never opened it until summer time when it rained. Both sides were emblazoned with full color Christmas wreaths!😂😂😂
