Thank you all for your comments. So I will be printing from local supermarket FoCal's target.

Will come back with update.

Make sure it isn’t laser. I had trouble with that places like Staples.
I feel even more confident that soon things will have a wonderful conclusion

Which one is advisable?

If you read FoCal’s instructions (which IMO are too long) it warns not to use laser. It says to use ink jet. I’m busy now but I’ll find it later.

I see the manual has been updated. Here is where it recommends ink jet but does not say why not to use laser. Matte paper for best results which again prevents reflections. I just used normal basic printer paper before I got the hard target.

Also this from the lighting the target part.

We don’t recommend the use of fluorescent or LED lighting as they can flicker – you won’t be able to see this with your eye, but the camera can be affected and the results may not be as accurate as possible.

Here we go. The above was a link from FoCal's site. I have two PDF manuals. Quick start and long. Only 177 pages
