Default Knock Down Target

Just purchased a knock down rat target that came with orange stickers

After firing my PCP rifle at them the stickers were blown off

Is there a better way of keeping a colour being visible to shoot, as all you get is a black hole once used

get some white road marking paint from the builders merchant and spray the rat, leave the kill dark, will show your misses more and be more like true hft/ft target

Someone mentioned 10p or 5p pieces on another forum, and just waiting for the gorilla glue to set before trying it

If they fall off will try the white marker paint

Cheers guys

just use bluing paste/liquid..
I know, that it will give You oposite color - black instead of hi-viz, but if You paint faceplate in f/ex Yellow -> black HZ will be well visible, and bluing lasts longer than painting..
Also, You can overheat popper, and it will change colour to black/blue .. and again - it will last longer that painting..
But, the easiest way is make bigger distance between faceplate and popper, and it will give You enough contrast to rectify HZ borders..
