Free Printable Targets For Shooting Practice

A little known resource we took the time to put together, more specifically Riley put together, is our library of FREE printable shooting targets. These are targets that are designed to help you get better at self-defense by shooting drills. The two pictures in this short article are actual examples, but should NOT be printed from this page.

The right page to print from is linked to at the bottom (or the previous paragraph).

These are super easy to download files in the PDF format that you should have no problem printing on your local, household printer and can even be printed in black and white with ease to help you save money on ink.

Each target is specifically designed to fit on 8.5X11″ paper, which is the standard paper found in all home and office printers.

There is no longer any reason to pay for targets when you can just download ours and print them off for free (well, minus the cost of a piece of paper and some ink), as many times as you want.

Our free printable targets are a little different than everyone else's in that these are useful for more than just sighting in a gun or something like that. These targets are useful for shooting defensive drills and will help your shooting proficiency.

Here is a picture of the circle dot drill I've personally used, and have had my rear end kicked in by, more than once:

You won't get better if you don't practice, and with all that's going on around the world, you want to be well-practiced. All of the printable targets available on our page are designed to help you get better at shooting.

You won't just get better at target practice, but more specifically, defensive shooting. That's why you're here reading this blog, right?

All of our free self-defense printable targets can be found on the below page:

    Do you have drills for the other targets or just the dot torture target?

    • Jacob Paulsen on June 3, 2020 at 1:19 pm

      The Dot Torture is the only target that specifically correlates to a drill. But most of the targets are designed to be modular and work with a number of popular drills. Here is a good resource for a comprehensive list

    What distances are you using these various targets? 3-5 yards vs 7 yards and 10 yards.

      It depends and you can challenge yourself by putting them out to varying ranges at different strings of fire. So, I may warm up doing the dot torture at 3 or 5 yards depending on how froggy I’m feeling that day, and then push it back just to challenge myself.
