    plastic bags or if you could go to a store and see if they have any old used shrink wrap that they haven't thrown away.

    Last year I made a couple with old clothes in the center and a piece of carpet on each side.

    Put the carpet in first then stuf the clothes between the two pieces of carpet as tight as you can get them.

    It worked really well. I never had a passthrough.
    That course was so easy I even missed a target !!

    I cut the buttons, zippers, snaps off of old cloths that we don't wear anymore and pack them tight. Makes for a nice target.

    You can also use lumber covers. homedepot or a building supply will save them for you they work great as a facing or stuffing.
