<p><a href=&quot;http://www.actiontarget.com/&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;>Action Target</a> installs full-scale indoor and outdoor ranges for law enforcement, as well as portable systems. Action Target&#39;s Track Runner heavy-duty track-mounted moving target system is designed for more permanent range installations. Unlike portable systems where the target is suspended from a steel cable, targets used with the Track Runner are mounted to a trolley that runs on a special track mounted close to the ground. This approach is ideal for realistic tactical applications because the target can move to different locations, change speed and direction, and dart in and out of cover. Action Target is now officially ISO 9001:2008 certified.</p>
