Interesting way to extend the life of a bag target. I’ve been trying to wear out a Morrell target for three years. It’s getting close.

If you wear out the cover of a Morrell, you can use their filler and suck it down with a vacuum in the Third Hand Rag Bag. The rag bag will outlast the Morrell.

To me what is funny is the look on someones face when they take their worn-out $300 target and cut it open. Hard to believe what these companies put inside their targets and sell them for $300. But of course, they give free shipping. lol

Does the field point used make a difference in longevity? I have some with blunt tips and some with pointed tips. Thinking the pointed tips will cause less damage to the bag?

How much shrink wrap would it take to fill up a 48x48 target? Like how many feet of the stuff?

That's a good question. I have not tried filling one with shrink wrap because I have not had good luck with it. Others have hopefully somebody will jump in and answer your question.

Thought I would chime in here, I haven't filled a bag completely with plastic wrap.But I have packed it tight around the edges where I dont't hit regularly,makes it not so heavy to lug around.

For anybody that's wanted to use shrink wrap head to your local auto parts store. Most of them get pallets of merchandise at least once a week... Hint, most O'Reilly's get shrink-wrapped palette everyday... show up there when they're opening, talk to the manager I'm sure they'll give you all the shrink-wrap you want... may have to make multiple trips or ask the manager to Simply put it in a cardboard box that you were going to provide.

I know it's probably already mentioned a few times here but for those that don't go through and read, try your local automotive upholstery place... They throw stuff away all the time
