It doesn't matter how thick it is, what matters is what material it is made of. Is it a bag target or a foam target?

Absolutely shoot your broadheads. I have several differnt brands and models and they ALL have quirks. The most unethical thing we do as hunters is not shoot or broadheads to see if they are flying correctly. No matter how well your bow is tuned you still need to check and re-check your arrow flight.

I shoot slick tricks along with other brands and have had sporadic arrow flight because of bad inserts, nocks, broadheads and the list goes on.

If money is an issue go by the 16.00 foam target at walmart and shoot your broadheads. If you don't your next question will be how long do you wait before trailing a gut shot deer.

Been there done that. My mistake was not practicing from an elevated position. (very, very, very important also)

Don't shoot broadheads into a bag target, you'll end up having to cut them out. You'll be better off buying a target designed for broadheads.

Ok, I guess thats what Im gonna do.

So how long can I shoot my broadheads before I need to replace the blades so that they will still be good to hunt with?

When I go into the field, I always have brand new blades in all my broadheads...even if they've only been shot a couple of times. Leave the dull blades for practicing.
