    Looking for ideas for cheap targets for 22. and 9mm to shoot at nothing expensive and some thing reusable and not to big to store in a garage.

    If it's my property I wouldn't worry about storing them in the garage. Build a nice berm, good targets, and leave them.

    ...for .22 you can get one of those targets w/ the little steel gongs/plates ( that spin or swing when hit ) for pretty cheap, ..just don't use anything more than .22 on that..

    We drill wholes in golf balls and string them up on fishing line. They spin like hell when you hit them, hard to hit once they start bouncing. Finish them off with the .50

    Shooting paper targets is boring. When on private property, I like to shoot steel plates, tennis balls, bottles, cans, and bricks. But on a public range, paper is usually the only option.

    Here is a good option for a mobile, quick setup target that is easy to store when not used. Any steel target of your choosing. I get mine from http://www.jcsteeltargets.com/

    Get this target hanger and use electrical conduit for the legs. It's cheap, lightweight, and easy to put up and take down. I usually leave it in the back of my truck when not in use. https://jcsteeltargets.mycustomeven...9&cid=318&returncom=productlist&source=search

    Here is one of mine in use:

    3/8 inch AR500 steel will last a lifetime if you aren't stupid with it. My plates have thousands of rounds with slight dimpling.

    I used to aim my Slingshot at a buoy that was rigged on a stump. Used to aim at birds on wires with my air rifle. Until I shot one, with it last action clenched it feet and swung on the wire.

    Covered in stickers and chrome stick-ons for extra horse torques and foot powers. Icon sticker gets me tons of travel, dozens of milimeters.
    I like AR500, bowling pins, or those orange "self healing" active targets they sell. Those things can take a fuck all of a beating. You often can even recover a smaller slug from them if you're interested!

    This - along with a little food coloring for effect & contrast. 1/2 gallon jugs work well too.
