Total Containment Trap™

The Total Containment Trap™ (TCT) is the safest, strongest, and most eco-friendly bullet trap in the world. It provides complete ballistic coverage making it ideal for fixed firing line and tactical training ranges. The TCT requires minimal maintenance and is equipped with the most efficient lead collection system available, keeping shooters, employees, and the environment safe. 


Collects lead fragments and dust for recycling, keeping them from impacting surrounding ground, waterways, and air.


Modular system is designed to collect lead with no down time. Does not require the use of water or rubber.


Patented ballistic design ensures that the trap is able to handle millions of handgun, shotgun, and rifle rounds.


Trap can be utilized in cross-lane and tactical shooting scenarios.

How the Total Containment Trap Works

Total Containment Trap Components

1. Deflection Plates

2. Deceleration Chamber

3. Bullet Collection System

4. Dust Collection Unit

Deflection Plates

Precisely engineered armor steel funnel plates direct fired rounds into the mouth of the trap.

Containment: The height of the trap along with its complete wall to wall design ensures that every round fired downrange is contained.

Solid Construction: From 1/4 to 1-inch thick AR500 or AR550, the right steel options are available to handle everything from small to large calibers.

Tactical: The carefully calculated angles of the plates are ideal for tactical and cross-lane shooting.


Deceleration Chamber

Rounds pass through the open mouth and into the sealed Vortex™ chamber where they spin along the wall of the chamber and decelerate. They are deposited into individual containers or a screw conveyor system.

Safe: Patented open mouth chamber design allows for safe cross-lane and tactical shooting.

Sealed: The chamber uses a patented design to ensure it remains sealed even when affected by the force of bullets.

Durable: The shape and quality of ballistic steel are precisely engineered to capture millions of rounds without damage.

Bullet Collection Systems

Once decelerated, rounds fall into a Bullet Collection System located below the Vortex deceleration chamber. Action Target offers three different options to fit any range or budget.

Auto 55: The most advanced collection system that uses a screw conveyor to automatically move bullets from the deceleration chamber into a 55-gallon drum. Fill levels are monitored using a control panel and a computer user interface.

Deluxe 20: The latest offering from Action Target uses a 20-gallon drum that can be rolled out of place when full. Fill levels are monitored through a built-in sight window. The Deluxe 20 requires less frequent replacement that any collection system on the market. LEARN MORE>

Basic 03: The most basic collection method utilizes 3.5-gallon canisters that attach directly to the deceleration chamber. This system requires the most frequent replacement, but offers the lowest entry price point.


Dust Collection Unit (DCU)

Using negative pressure, the dust collection system draws lead dust from the trap and deposits it into a containment system.

Clean: Hazardous lead dust is drawn into sealed and easy to transport containers.

Superior Filtration: Advanced technology achieves higher efficiency, cleaner air, lower pressure drop, and longer filter life than any other standard cartridge filter.

Patented Uptake Manifold: A newly designed manifold prevents large materials from clogging the system.
