From small beginnings, Action Target is a business that has transformed the concept of indoor shooting range equipment. Founded in 1986, the company started by creating a pneumatic turning target system for the Provo Police Department training curriculum. From there, Action Target began working with armor steel and creating innovative designs resulting in unique, patented technology. The steel bullet trap, now known as the Total Containment Trap (TCT), has become a superior trap within the industry because of its ability to successfully collect bullet rounds, lead dust and other particles in a way that is eco-friendly and low maintenance for the range owner.
The Total Containment Trap, along with other technology that was created as the business grew, changed the way range owners thought about bullet containment and collection, target retrievers and portable steel targets. Action Target created the initial product line for Law Enforcement, but the innovative technology eventually spread to the commercial and military markets.
Action Target’s reach extended beyond shooting range equipment to the shoot houses when Action Target built and engineered the first Modular Armored Tactical Combat House (MATCH) shoot house in 1995. This shoot house offered a ballistic live-fire space to teach and execute close-quarter skills and training scenarios. The company has continued to grow throughout the years, providing unique solutions to the commercial range owner, as well as Law Enforcement and Military organizations. Whatever the need is, Action Target equips the gun owner, police officer or military personnel with training solutions to prepare individuals for whatever lies ahead.
The start to finish approach encompassing every step of the process is unique to Action Target. From the initial range design drawings to manufacturing, to product design and the final installation, the company has knowledgeable, in-house professionals who execute each step of the process. Action Target designs, manufactures and installs turnkey and custom shooting ranges, tactical combat houses and portable steel targets for versatile firearms training.
