    I can't be the first person to think of this: Instead of using the orange skeets that leave ugly residue at the shooting pits, for target practice I have used the inexpensive flat dried tortillas for targets. They are found in the supermarket ethnic section, about a dollar per dozen. They shatter when shot, and are self-cleaning with the nightly assistance of coyotes and wood rats. No ugly orange litter. Keep a bag or two :rolleyes:in the rig; at worst they can be survival food too!

    I hadn't thought of tortillas before. Like the survival aspect though.

    I've used Ritz crackers and mini binder clips with good results.

    Good idea. I use Ritz and potatoes quite a bit. Potatoes are not quite a fun a golf balls, but you don't have to worry about getting all of the little pieces picked up.

    Hey, the rules say... Manufactured targets specifically made for target shooting, or home made paper targets.

    Oh, screw the rules, tortilla's sound like more fun! I see nothing wrong with that and I'd argue to a judge about it as well.

    Corn tortilla's? About a 6" or 8"? S'pose you could even take a Sharpie, draw a dot in the center and use them for rifle as well, (good luck trying to find where the bullet hit!).
