The Evolution of a Great Target

The following is submitted by Mark the CEO of EZ2C Targets. It contains a history of the company and an explanation of how they got to where they are today. It also goes into the various styled designs they have and the practical purpose. While this is an advertorial  and written by the product owner and not us I will make the following addition.

Until I found Mark most of the time I shot targets printed at home on standard 8.5×11 paper. Using EZ2C targets for sighting in with style 5 targets makes my life much easier. Running pistol drills with style 17 Dot Torture has become a fun torture test to remind me how much more I need to practice.

At 7.50 for a stack of 40 targets your paying less than $.018 a target. With the 10% discount it is only $/16 per target which is about what it costs me to print them myself factoring ink and paper.

Back in 1993, a family of shooters got bored with the same old black targets and frustrated with the inability to see where shots were landing. This combined with being professional printers naturally lent itself to the creation of a new and more efficient target. The designing and printing of targets for family enjoyment began. They needed to be easier to see and offer variety in shooting while still being cost effective.  Highly visible fluorescent red ink and contrasting bold black ink were the beginning. Next came designing a target that enhanced and improved the shooter’s skill.  A ton of lead and years of trial and error later emerged a dozen different styles of handgun and rifle targets.  For years, the Gregory family along with fellow shooters continued successfully firing at those targets. It was now possible to see the target, see where the shot landed and shoot more rounds at each outing…thus the trademarked name EZ2C Targets was born.

Fellow shooters using the targets had such a positive experience that with their urging, it was decided to make the targets readily available to the public.
