    Targe Construction for Training

    Does anyone have any pointers or instructions for constructing a Targe for training? Nothing really fancy, just functional and as authentic as practical. Or....does anyone have a source for affordable ready-made practice Targes? Thanks!

    For training purposes, a circle of 1/2 or 3/4" plywood 16-24" across. IMHO targes were generaly made to fit an individual.
    Take some solid leather strapping and make a grip and arm piece. Use short 1/4" carriage bolts. And paint it brown.
    Adding leather to a waster is a waste.
