    Default Paint for targets

    hi all

    after the provincial shoot in KZN.

    i want to know what paint they used. the black for the KZ at the end of the shoot only showed 1 or 2 hits (maybe a high power rifle was used)

    what paints will not show hits on the face plate??? Hammer tone is to expencise. Dirt ryders has targets up in trees where you need a ladder to get to them to spey.

    any ideas

    I had to get paint at the last moment and found an old tin of black board paint. That was on the Gamo Alley targets. How to get targets into trees? Simple, park your Landy under the tree, put your ladder on the roof, climb up and tie the target to the branch. Obvious, really.

    Allan is always welcome to the dirt ryders shoots, infact he knows that he has to be there so that he can paint his target or targets.

    so black board paint for the kill zone, what about the face?

    but on the other hand it would make life difficult for the RO to count hits in the KZ if they do not show. Is there White board pant?????

    all good and well but why would you want to spey a target It seems counter productive.. But hey I wont complain. If they cant make little targets then maybe I can sell more!
