    I'm in Beaverton and looking for somewhere local to buy some idpa or IPSC cardboard targets. I used to get them at the range house at tri county gun club. But the last 4 times I went, they were all gone.

    I'd prefer to not order them online and pay shipping. I'm looking for 25, but I'll buy as many as a 100 if necessary.​

    Do you need cardboard?

    There are plans on line and you can print them off - attach to a pizza box or something.

    Sorry, I don't have a local source.

    I may end up doing that. It doesn't seem like anyone carries them in town.

    I gave up trying to find them in town. I tend to order them via Amazon or Dvor.com. Sometimes you can get them with free shipping. If you have Amazon Prime, it is free shipping anyway.

    Just cut them out of cardboard boxes - that's how I recycle :).

    Plus side of making your own, is you can make them 7/8 or 3/4 size for practice.

    Just go to a match and let the match director know you would like to keep the used targets. A lot will be trashed but there will be more than enough that just need a little tape, like the no shoots. Cost less and you shot a match.

    If I didn't work until 4am that would be an option. But sleeping 3 hours and then standing around all day to shoot 10 minutes and get some targets doesn't seem worth it.

    The just show up after the match and look through the cardboard recycling bins. I've done that more than a few times.

    You could also remind the Executive Range Officer to put out some more targets. His email is on the club web site.

    I have some paper ones, you can glue or staple them onto cardboard. PM me if you want. I'm in Beaverton as well.

    If you can't make it to matches because of your work schedule, just call or email a match director, and see if they can hook you up. You're quite a ways from Albany, but if you do ever get down there for a match, the club store is open on Saturdays and they have all of the targets. I believe they're still a buck each.

    Here is a page with links to the Columbia Cascade Section USPSA clubs: http://www.columbia-cascade.org/

    A forum member local to me ordered 100 and said he'd sell me 25 targets for $25. He's waiting for them to come in. Thanks for the suggestions guys.
