    Well, they certainly seem unreasonably expensive, LOL.

    Seems a bit over priced.

    Just use tinfoil if your sighting in during the day. The stuff I linked below is perfect.

    Amazon.com: 3M 3311 Silver Aluminum Foil Tape - 1 in. x 5 yd. Vapor Resistant Rubber Adhesive Foil Tape Roll. Adhesives and Tapes: Industrial & Scientific

    It's 1" wide and has an adhesive backing. Cut off about an inch and a half from the roll. Peel the adhesive covering back about 1/2 inch and stick it to your target. Bend the tinfoil up a bit till you see a shine from the sky. Now set your thermal to black hot. That tinfoil will GLOW bright white.

    Here is what I mean by bending the tinfoil up a bit.

    If sighting in at night just use the smallest hand warmers you can find and staple em to your target or some of them come with an adhesive like the toe warmers.

    One of those guys under the About looks familiar. :D Looks like they are in Austin, TX.

    I have a roll of foil hvac tape that I keep in my truck. I checked my zero last night in the cold wind and I tore off a 4x3 inch piece and put it on some cardboard and just leaned it back against a tree. It showed up good at 100. Wasn't like during the day but it worked.

    If you use three or more layers of that "muffler tape",one on top of the other,they heat up better and give a better thermal signature.
    I use 3,2"X2" pieces,one on top of the other. In the sunlight they stand out great. ---- pruhdlr

    I use them for videos and I ship the 1" squares with the thermals I sell so people can get a better zero than using something cold or hot.

    I was thinking about just buying the squares. They have tan and green, which ones should I get?

    That's exactly what I use. Except here up north, it gets cold real quick. I stick it to an old file folder, taped to my target board, no problems out to 200 yds. I also use it for my Nemesis WP.

    Iā€™m worried because I could not figure out how many come in a pack for the price posted that it must be a pack of one?

    Is that price per each?

    Well, for the coyote or hog target, it says "target" and not "package of 25" or anything like that.

    For the patch repair, it says "440 1 inch square tan patches" which appears to be a single sheet of patches.

    I bought the sheet of patches. There's a bunch of them, but i didn't count how many.
