AFTERMARKET SERVICES OPTIMIZE SHOOTING RANGE PERFORMANCE

One of the most compelling reasons to work with Action Target is to access a complete turnkey solution. Not only do we provide professional range consulting, design, manufacturing and installation services, but we also offer a host of aftermarket programs and products to make sure your range operation excels. This translates to a partner- ship that continues after your range is built.

MANAGING HAZARDOUS WASTE

Shooting ranges are responsible for all the waste they generate and must be able to verify that it is properly disposed of or re- cycled. Examples of non-recyclable waste include used PPE and contaminated filters. Recyclable hazardous materials include collected lead and brass. Action Target has pro- grams to significantly simplify the process of managing range waste. Our recycling and disposal procedures are OSHA and EPA compliant and are in strict accordance with EPA and DOT regulations. In addition, we provide detailed documentation of our processes, protecting ranges from potential fines.

METALS RECYCLING PROGRAM

Several years ago, we rolled out our innovative Metals Recycling Program. Members of this program find it exceptionally reward- ing. It requires next to no effort on your part. Simply call us when you’re ready for a pick-up. We will arrive at your range within 72 hours and sort and weigh your spent metals. With our transparent pricing, which is based on the London Metals Exchange (the global center for industrial metals trading), you will receive the best price for your recycled lead and brass in either cash or Action Target credit. Credit can be applied toward our online store products, range equipment, and range services. Customers who opt for credit receive an extra 10% bonus.

RUBBER BERM TRAP CLEANING

Cleaning and mining a rubber berm trap is an inconvenient, time-consuming, and messy process. Action Target removes the hassle and prioritizes the safety and profitability of your range with convenient and comprehensive rubber berm trap cleaning available. Our proprietary lead recovery process is the fastest and most efficient in the industry. Furthermore, our pricing is competitive and transparent, allowing you to maintain control of your metals revenue.

CUSTOMIZED MAINTENANCE PLANS

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. Action Target works with you to build a plan that determines the appropriate number of annual visits your range requires. These visits include specialized services to keep your range running at peak condition. Our technicians thoroughly inspect your range products for wear and assess necessary service and maintenance protocols. Any products in need of service are taken care of on-site.

ACTION TARGET STORE

FEATURED RANGES

SECURITÉ GUN CLUB | WOODINVILLE, WASHINGTON

The owner of Securité Gun Club had a strong vision for the type of range operation they wanted. Per their web- site, their mission is to deliver a “uniquely refined” experience in an environment that is “luxurious, modern, secure, and family-friendly.” They chose to partner with Action Target because of our extensive industry experience and reputation as a provider of quality shooting range equipment. Furthermore, Action Target offers the market’s best ventilation systems, which greatly appealed to the safety-conscious owner.

Securité’s 34-lane shooting range is equipped with Action Target’s TCTTM Vortex steel trap system, Defend- erTM stalls, and a combination of our state-of-the-art GenesisTM and Touch Plus target retrievers.

Securité is partnered with an exotic car dealership, so the owner of the gun club may be seen driving a McLaren adorned with Securité’s logo.

KIMBER RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT RANGE | TROY, ALABAMA

Gun manufacturer Kimber partnered with Action Target to build their research and development shooting range. Located in the company’s manufacturing facility in Troy, AL, this high-volume shooting range required a powerful bullet trap system. To meet this requirement, the 6-lane range was outfitted with Action Target’s TCTTM Vortex steel trap system as well as the BCS Deluxe 20, which is Action Target’s newest bullet containment system. This system utilizes

large capacity 20-gallon drums connected to the base of each deceleration chamber. The drums are situated upon dollies and utilize a quick release clamp for easy change-out.

The Kimber R&D facility also features Action Target’s tactical ceil- ing baffles, SRET retrievers, Guardsman stalls and a recirculation ventilation system.

NEW PRODUCTS

JUMPING TARGETS

Action Target is pleased to announce a new partnership with Jumping Targets. Over the last 10 years, Jumping Targets has excelled in the development of affordable, high-quality tar- gets. Most targets are made solely of AR500 steel, providing a long life and exceptional value. The targets also ring loudly when struck, providing valuable audible feedback to target shooters. Jumping Targets holds eight patents (some pend- ing) for their innovative designs. Action Target is excited to provide additional reactive target options for our customers.

This fall, you can purchase these new targets at Sportsman’s Warehouse or from shop.actiontarget.com.

PILOT TARGET RETRIEVER

Action Target’s PilotTM target retriever was developed to pro- vide a wireless out-and-back target retriever solution in place of traditional wire-drive based systems. Additionally, the Pi- lot includes damage-preventing features such as a hidden backer clamp and Strike WatchTM technology. Strike Watch detects when the carrier is struck and will terminate sessions if excessive strikes occur, protecting the range owner’s in- vestment. The system’s integrated target lighting and em- bedded camera displays the target on the shooter’s control screen, providing an unrivaled target shooting experience. Furthermore, Pilot interfaces with Action Target’s range control software SmartRange AxisTM to provide total retriever control, lane time control, and equipment permissions.

GAME SERIES PAPER TARGETS

Action Target recently launched our Game Series paper targets, bringing an added element of competition and entertainment to target shooting. Inspired by arcade games, wildlife hunting, carnival entertainment, tabletop gaming, and team sports such as baseball, these targets create a riveting and interactive shooting experience. Each target includes rules for game play. For example, the object of ‘Ocean Battle’ is to be the first player to sink an opponents’ ships by shooting the ships’ target rings. Some targets, such as ‘Alien Invasion’, employ fluorescent colors, allow- ing ranges to amplify the game experience with black lights. Many of these paper targets have been integrated with Action Target’s GenesisTM target retriever control system for automated game-play and training.

Visit shop.actiontarget.com to peruse the Game Series target selection.

INNOVATION INSIGHT
