Target Retrievers are a mechanical system designed to transport shooting targets closer to or farther from the shooter. Typically found at indoor shooting ranges, these retrievers allow shooters to place their targets at various distances and retrieve them without walking downrange. They enhance the shooting experience by providing an efficient way to change target positions and collect fired-upon targets.
Safety: Eliminates the need for shooters to walk downrange, reducing the potential for accidents or unintentional discharges.
Efficiency: Shooters can quickly adjust the target distance or retrieve shot-upon targets without manual effort or interruptions.
Training: Enables varied training scenarios by quickly adjusting target distances, beneficial for law enforcement or competitive training.
Enhanced User Experience: Provides a professional and streamlined shooting experience, especially attractive to new shooters or those accustomed to premium range facilities.
When should I use target retrievers at my shooting range?
Consider implementing target retrievers in your shooting range:
Indoor Ranges: Almost a standard feature in modern indoor facilities, offering controlled environments and enhanced shooter experience.
Skill Diversification: For ranges aiming to cater to both beginners and professionals, allowing varied training and shooting scenarios.
Competitive Events: To ensure a seamless competition without manual target retrieval interruptions.
Maximizing Space: Especially beneficial for shorter indoor ranges, giving the illusion of a longer range by moving the target rather than the shooter.

AR500 Steel: A specific type of high-carbon steel known for its hardness and durability. The “AR” stands for “Abrasion Resistant,” and the “500” refers to its Brinell hardness number. This makes AR500 a superior steel, especially when it comes to handling the intense impact of bullets.
Why is AR500 steel important?
When it comes to shooting targets, safety and durability are paramount. AR500 steel’s extreme hardness makes it resistant to pitting and deformation. This means when a bullet impacts an AR500 steel target, it doesn’t cause significant damage to the target’s surface. Instead, the bullet fragments safely, reducing the risk of ricochets or splatter back towards the shooter. Its lasting durability also means that targets made from AR500 steel will have a longer lifespan, offering shooters more value for their investment.
High-Volume Shooting: Due to their resilience, these targets can withstand extensive shooting sessions without significant wear or tear.
Training Facilities: Many law enforcement and military training centers prefer AR500 steel targets because of their longevity and reliability.
Rifle Shooting: The hardness of AR500 makes it ideal for rifle rounds, which have a higher velocity and can cause more damage to softer targets.
Personal Use: For enthusiasts looking for a target that will last and offer consistent performance.
However, as with any shooting target, always follow proper safety guidelines, such as ensuring adequate distance and using appropriate ammunition.
