Default RE: Making bag targets.... Any Suggestions

If you are set on making your own targets, have you thought about compressing strips of cardboard between two pieces of plywood? I made one once like that and it didn't work bad. The price was right. Take two pieces of 5/8" or 3/4" plywood, about 24-30 inches long and 6-8 inches wide. Drill 1/2 inch holes in each end of each piece of plywood for a threaded rod to fit through. Put a nut and washers on the end the rod and slip one piece of plywood over the rod. Cut strips of cardboard the same side as the plywood and slip them over the threaded rod. Once you have it as big as you want it, put the top piece of plywood on over the threaded road and tighten it down with washers and nuts. Not the greatest target, but if you don't want to drop $60 on a new one, it serves the purpose.
