Finally took advantage of my 2nd amendment right... obviously all i want to do is go to the range and shoot now. Was searching for cool shooting targets online, with DECENT art?? do they not exist??? are the generic circles the way to go?? a little help please!!
Son that's somebody with nothing to do with his time but keep me in trouble with mom.
Wow that is great advice, thanks a ton!!
A 8x11 inch blank piece of paper may be all one needs until they can shoot
good groups so they are not distracted by the tgt and pay proper attention
on shooting form and sight alignment.

Using one of the "Shoot-n-See" type of target is a good step up - still generally a traditional bulls-eye but it's a florescent undercoat color covered by a black surface that flakes away around a bullet strike. Makes it easier to see the bullet hole from a distance, and for a novice seeing those bullet holes from a reasonable range as they happen is a hoot. The danger here, accuracy-wise, is once you land a bullet, some tend to shoot for that bullet hole to try for "maximum accuracy", it takes a bit of discipline to maintain the same sight picture which is the only way to be sure of the sight alignment and adjustment.
Past this, take your pick! Over-ripe produce (home-grown or supermarket), clay shotgun targets, jugs of various sizes filled with water (food coloring optional for a bit more fun! - Just clean up the non-biodegradable debris afterward...) or other "plinking" targets all have a great appeal for the fun factor.
On-line resources like those above will either allow you to print your own, or give sources to order just about anything you'd like. If you're artistic, and have butcher paper, paper grocery sacks, posterboard, or other large paper goods, then the possibilities are endless!!!
