    US 1940s 10" black "A" Targets or centers

    Is anyone aware of a source for 'A' targets or target centers with 10" black bullseyes?

    So far the closest I have found is the 1950s to mid 60s with 12" black discussed in this thread

    It would be neat to use the same targets as used for training and qualifying for the long arms of the US through WW2.

    Also an interesting story here about the pay incentive.

    Short version cross post from CC.

    Since my local indoor range allows carbines, and its a lot closer than the closest state range, here's what I did..

    Printed the 25 yard sighting target, and drew up a scaled down 'A' 10" bullseye target.
    Three goals for this session.
    1. See that it fires without issues. 1 round in the chamber. None in magazine.
    2. Sighting targets; Bench rest 1 off hand and 6 shots bench rest Then 7 shots off hand.
    (The bench was too low and I wasn't comfortable shooting that way. Next time we'll raise it)
    3. See how I do on the 'A' targets off hand.



    Groups were OK but seemed like I was losing focus, just a little, and need to work my skills.
