I suck at math and suck even more at caring to understand the reasoning on what distance the scaled targets need to be placed to simulate a certain distance. Can someone just tell me the distance in feet (or yards i dont care) to place a target that is 1/2 scale? Assume I am retarded.. dont break down area of the target in comparison to the scaled fraction etc.Ive searched and read a bunch of things on this topic and still dont know exactly the distance to stand from the target.
I found this on Steegers proshop and I believe I have been at the wrong distances. (I have always stood farther than needed)
1/3 Scale: 1 Foot = 1 Yard
Example: Standing 10 feet from the target simulates a full size target at 10 yards.
Example: Standing 10 feet from the target simulates a full size target at 20 yards.
Now second question, again assume I am retarded. I might actually be.
I bought dryfire targets a while ago and dont remember what scale I purchased. could someone enlighten me What is the actual size of a say 1/2 scaled target in inches? 1/3 scale? 1/6 scale?
I ordered some more targets so I will eventually get them and can figure it out based on what sizes I ordered and what ones I already have, but I want to dryfire tonight at the correct simulated distances with what I got.
