I have just done a test in the back garden, I have a 15mm kill knockover that has had a lot of abuse and spaying and it suffers from flaking really badly.

When I spray it, after about 10 misses the paint starts to drop off. I have ground off all the paint to bare metal and resprayed with

1 coat (no flaking after 40 misses)
2 coats (no flaking after 40 misses)
3 coats (no flaking after 40 misses)

and that's when I got board and came in. It would appear that as long as the targets are ground down and resprayed before an event, there should not be a problem.

Personally, I like yellow paint as you get less glare in bright sunlight.
Somehow I made TEAM ENGLAND 2012 and 2013
