Default Punching Paper - Old Targets

There is a couple active threads about ammo and punching paper, last night I watched Stanly Kubrick's 1956 movie, 'The Killing' (film noir). There is a scene where the bad guys are target practicing -- great targets!!!

I made a couple of screen shots to share how cool the old targets were. These targets are from the mid-50's.



It's not clear if the targets are 'G' men or thugs.






We aren't talking no cheap assed paper squares.






You can tell it was from a time when the economy was better -- corporations had enough money to print a "zero" point zone on the targets. Check out the hat.

Back during the late 70's/early 80's, when the 52 diplomats were being held hostage in Iran, we had targets that were an image of Ayatollah Khomeini that we delighted in converting into pounds of confetti. We also had his image printed on plastic that were glued to the interior of the urinals in the range's men's room.

NO SILHOUETTES with people printed on them. Faces and pictures too.

It's the People's Republic Of Massachusetts. I'm telling you people from away to HOLD ON TO YOUR RIGHTS!!!! Don't let it happen to you.

I'm surprised no one has challenged that ban as a 1st Amendment issue. How long has the ban been in place?
