    I tried searching for this, so sorry if I missed a previous post - does anyone know a good place to buy clay targets? I'm looking to purchase in bulk, and don't care about size or color.

    Thanks

    I always get them at Walmart. When I actually have to go there.

    Not bad at all. What large of quantities are you looking to buy?

    If my math - and understanding their site - is correct, then one pallet through that site would be 63 cases of 135 targets each for a total of $373.59. That's 8,505 targets at about $0.04 each. I'd like to spend closer to $250-300 range, but that deal seems pretty good.

    I'm new to the shotgun sports, so if this deal can be closely matched, let me know!
    thanks!

    The math works out about the same for the Wal-Mart clays, $3.96 for 90 clays. You can buy as many as you want, if you need more than they got, they can order all you want.

    Well, thats a lot of clays. I think the most I have went through in a day was 2 boxes of 90 from Wally world.
    If you don't mind asking, why so many? Are you buying this for a shooting club or something?

    I know it's an aweful lot, but I'm going in on the purchase with a couple friends, but if they're at the Wal-Mart near us (there aren't many Walmarts in this area) then I'll just pick up a couple hundred at a time.
