What have you all found to be the minimum distance to targets to prevent paster blast off?

We do not put them so close to the wall that you need to hang your arm over to get at them, but about 3' behind the wall on angled stands so that you need to be up to the wall before the full A zone becomes visible.

Proper paster application need finger pressure all the way around the edge of the tape to get the edges sticking flat and tight to the target, not just jabbed on like most people do. Raised edges encourage lifting and blow off from muzzle blast.
Too bad hardly anybody makes the effort. And, while convenient and fast, I find automatic pasters to be the worst offenders - the tape may be flat, but you could sneeze and blow them off, they are so loosely applied.
