Action Target'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.
Arntzen Corp.'s alloy steel targets are ideal for training, practice, or matches. The company's steel gong model 9115 AR500 target hangs from a stand and rings when you hit it. The full-size IPSC plate measures 3/8 x 17.25 x 29.5 inches and weighs 46 pounds. Arntzen's portable folding stand sets up quickly without tools; just hook the target on the top of the stand. You can adjust the angle at which the target hangs so you can direct the lead spatter to the ground. You can set them up and shoot all day without maintenance.
LaRue Sniper Targets are specifically designed for military and law enforcement sniper training, but are also well suited to shotgun and handgun courses. They are battery powered, portable, and battle tough. The target automatically resets 1,800 times between charges and is timed to reset in nine seconds, then shut off, saving power and leaving it field ready. Weighing 72 pounds total, the 3/8-inch-thick self-contained target requires no assembly. It withstands .223 and .308 rounds and is weatherproof, so you can leave it outside year round.
Law Enforcement Targets
Law Enforcement Targets' new patent pending B-21E Target Plus Vital Anatomy combines a depiction of vital anatomy and the B-21E scoring pattern on the silhouette. This allows for the combination of qualification and advanced training with one target. Shaded lines cannot be seen at seven yards or more. The blue target measures 23 x 35 inches.
Meggitt's RTS-360 Target System is a dynamic turning target system designed to improve live fire training through unpredictable, fast-action target presentation to the shooter. The system can be programmed to randomly turn the target holder to the left or right in increments up to 360 degrees or present a complete, unexpected turn at the direction of programmable software. Each lane of targets can be programmed to turn autonomously or simultaneously. An overhead steel track provides a stable platform for fast turning target presentation.
Savage Range Systems
Savage Range Systems unveiled its new KMA Overhead Target Retrieval System at the SHOT Show. The KMA is easy to install and maintain. Its modular design accommodates any length of range, with lighting that rides the track with the target. Powered by a standard 115/230-volt outlet, with low wattage LED lighting, the retrieval system runs a self-diagnostic at start-up and uses dual optical sensors to allow the shooter to accurately set the target distance.
Target Industries' Flip-n-Targets are easy to transport and use. They come in three sizes: Qualifier, Pro, and Sportsman. The design of these folding wooden target stands allows for quick and easy set-up, not to mention the benefit of minimizing the space needed for storage and travel. The stand allows for set-up on uneven ground and does well in the wind thanks to adjustable legs.
