18″ × 30″ Cardboard Target Backers (10 Pack)
Pack of 10 cardboard backers for use with common silhouette, law-enforcement, and other 18-inch wide paper shooting targets. Each backer measures 18″ × 30″.
Simply adhere one or more of these cardboard backers to your wooden target frame using staples, tacks, adhesive, or clamps. Then attach your paper target to the backer using similar implements. You're ready to shoot.
These backers can sustain hundreds of shots before replacement is necessary. They are a very cost effective way to protect your paper targets from the wind and hold them steady while you take your shot.
This backer is sold in packs of ten. Try them out with your paper targets. If you don't think they are the most portable, suitable, or convenient backers you have ever used, we will refund you 100 percent or replace them with an alternative backer of your choosing.
Adhering The Target to the Backer
Use a target backer that is big enough to accommodate the paper target. An over-sized backer will catch more wind, potentially moving your target; i.e. bulls-eye.
3M® Super 77 spray adhesive is a quick and effective method of attaching paper and cardboard targets to the backing. However, retrieving your target may be a sticky issue. If targets must be retrieved, just spray the corners of the target. Then cut or tear the target from the backer at the corners.
If you have a clever way of setting up your target, please share your assembly tips.
Adhering the Backer to the Frame
The backer can be fixed to the wooden support frame using the following:
- The utility staple gun is a quick and effective method of adhering the backers to the wooden target frame.
- Removing the backing from the frame may be a little more difficult than some of the other methods, especially clamps.
- Adhesive Spray
- 3M 90
- 3M Super 77 (probably too weak)
- Clamps & Clips
- Fastest and fairly effective method of holding the backer to the frame
- Best backer removal
- Moderate resilience to gun shots
- Cheap and easy to replace
