Where do your guys buy cardboard IDPA targets? Looking for 50 or 100, about $0.34 is the best I can find.

$0.34 is a good price. I've always gotten mine from the IDPA proshop and they're around $0.60/each.

At work we pay to have a cardboard dumpster emptied...when one of the grunts are cutting cardboard to fit in the dumpster we have some cut up for target backers, I take a stack of those home and use a shot up IDPA from the range as a template with a sharpie and a sheet rock knife....about 2 minutes each , a 1/4 " off exact doesn't matter to me.
Most places pay to have cardboard taken away...most likely would be happy to give you some.

This. Plenty of cardboard around. I just cut it into easy to manage rectangles to get it home. Then use a lightweight wooden stencil / template and just cut them out real quickly. Some cardboard dumpsters and tape and you'll be good to go all season.

Cheers!

Make your own. Buy one, and trace the rest from scrap cardboard. Easy peasy

For that price, are you sure they are cardboard and not paper? I know when I was looking the cheapest I could find for cardboard was just under a buck, so I make my own, well actually my youngins make them.

You actually need two targets to make your own, my daughter just made ten of them for me a couple minutes ago.

I am using IPSC targets, almost the same as IDPA, but the A zone is a rectangle, not a circle.
