Protect your Shooting Range Investment with Proper Maintenance
A key element of keeping your equipment under warranty is performing all of the required maintenance. A regularly scheduled maintenance plan with trained Action Target technicians is the perfect way to make sure this happens.
Many range operators simply don’t have the manpower, expertise or time to keep their equipment properly maintained. When lack of maintenance leads to equipment failure, critical operating time is lost. Whether your range is a training facility or a commercial operation, an Action Target maintenance plan will help you focus your time on the important business of running your range.
Incorporate modern firearms training standards and techniques into your program, even on the most undeveloped ranges.
With every visit, your Action Target certified technician will conduct operational training on all your systems. We can train new personnel who are unfamiliar with the range and we can conduct more advanced training for those who already know the basics.
