    Just moved into a new place with a 10 yd long Garage

    So Just moved into a new place that does not have much yard space to do target practice, but the garage is 10 yds long and going out the driveway I can 25 yds. I prefer to use the stacked foam sheet targets like the Black Hole but my arrows normally have about 6 in. sticking out the back side of the target and some times go the whole way through. With having a concrete wall behind the target I would like to get a foam target that will stop this from happening. Does anyone have any ideas of what i should get or should I just go back to the bag targets?

    Another good option on a budget is a grain sack filled with plastic bags and pillow stuffing polyester.

    I been using spiderweb targets for years. The last one I bought is not like the old spider webs. Shot right through it and shot up pretty quickly.

    I think i am either going to try a bulldog target or make my own with the thirdhand archery target skins.

    Well, that isn't good news.... If you do get a bulldog, let us know how it works for you.

    I did the third hand deal a few years back. I stuffed it as best I could. But it didnt last as long as I expected it should have. And nowhere near as long as my old spider has. I still use my spider after 6 years. I have another frame built for a third hand, just haven't rounded up enough old clothes to fill it. It is 3'x3' X 16". My last one was 12" thick.......

    I've gone the Third Hand route and the Spyder Web route. In my basement I have two Spyder Web targets, one is probably 7 years old and still stopping arrows but they do go a lot farther into it. Outside I have a THA target that is only three years old and is beginning to show wear but I leave it out exposed to our extreme weather. Both options are very good options.

    I've heard alot of good about the big shot targets. a guy I know shoots 150 to 200 arrows a day an his is still going after a year. I think his is the iron man ones.

    you can get a blob in there...I am curious to because I haven't got a target that will last a year before I blow through it, and certainly nothing that will keep it from poking out the other end. Rinehardts have held up the best for me but I hate pulling arrows from them.

    Pulling only 25lb Lanny, i would have thought your targets would last a life time.
