Shot Show 2012 is a huge success so far and Action Target is thrilled to be part of such an important shooting industry event. Whether constructing our larger than life Action Target booth, demonstrating the variety of innovative training solutions and products we offer, or connecting with some of the 60,000 shooters and enthusiasts attending this year’s event, Action Target is enjoying it all.
Working with Media Day at the Range in creating and presenting this year’s first Action Target Safety Award has been an amazing opportunity and a success for gun safety. “Using Action Target as an exclusive provider of targets has been key to our success,” said Cory Cannon, of Triple Curl Public Relations and Advertising. “Targets need to be fun to shoot and even more important, safe.”
With Shot Show coming to a close tomorrow, we want to invite everyone who hasn’t had a chance to stop by yet and even those who have already stopped by, to come visit us at booth #10564. Action Target is giving away a great offer to everyone who stops by our booth, so come say “Hi” before this year’s show is over!

Summer has arrived! To complement these long sunny days and make outdoor shooting even better, Action Target is offering multiple products for July’s Target of the Month program!
Setting up targets for outdoor shooting can be a daunting and exhausting task. Most outdoor setup requires carrying heavy targets across uneven terrain to set up a single shot. That is why we are proud to offer our exclusive self-healing target line by Reactive Target Systems (RTS). These systems are light and easy to assemble, making shooting outdoors more enjoyable.
Our RTS targets are not only great for outdoor use but they are also the best close quarter combat targets for live fire training scenarios. In addition, they can be placed in front of steel targets with no splatter, making them great for indoor range use. During the entire month of July, we are offering our RTS Static Packages at a discounted price:
To ensure a perfect target visual, we offer our Torso Targets in six different vibrant colors.
Don’t wait any longer! Purchase your RTS targets today. Visit our Action Target Online Store and use the appropriate coupon code to receive your discount. Offer ends July 31, 2011. Only one coupon code may be used per order.
Action Target is proud to support and sponsor this year’s 2011 MidwayUSA/NRA Bianchi Cup. For the past 25 years, Action Target has sponsored and provided target equipment for firearms competitions across the U.S. and throughout the world. Action Target equipment has been used at the Bianchi Cup for over 20 years and we are proud to be expanding that role and are pleased to continue to support this event.
The Bianchi Cup began as a law enforcement training match in 1979. It was created by former police officer John Bianchi of Bianchi International, the holster manufacturing company. Ray Chapman worked with John and developed this world-class event. Action Target worked with Ray at his facility to provide a target system fit to meet the needs of the cup in the late 80’s. Over the years, this event has brought together shooters from all over the world. Last year’s competitors came from Australia, Canada, Germany, Italy, Japan, New Zealand, Netherlands, Switzerland, and the United States.
The 2011 Bianchi Cup is a competition of speed and accuracy. This year’s awards include the World Famous Silver Bianchi Cup and Division Champion Trophy Cups for the Metallic and Production Division. Class awards are awarded to various categories including High Law Enforcement, High Woman, High Junior, High International, High Newcomer, High Senior, High Grand Senior, High Service, High Semi-Auto, High Revolver, and Aggregate.
The Course of Fire consists of four separate matches:
The Practical Event: From the appropriate shooting line, the shooter fires at distances of 10 to 50 yards under varying time limits.
The Barricade Event: From within shooting boxes and behind barricades, a shooter fires at targets on either side of the barricade under varying time limits and distances.
The Falling Plate Event: From the appropriate shooting line, the shooter fires at 8 inch round steel plates arranged in banks of six at distances of 10 to 25 yards under varying time limits.
The Moving Target Event: From within shooting boxes at distances ranging from 10 to 25 yards, the shooter fires at a target moving from left to right, with the target being exposed for only six seconds.
Throughout all matches, competitors shoot from standing and prone positions and are required to shoot with both strong and weak hands at various stages.
The 2011 competition runs from May 25th through May 28th in Columbia, MO. To assist new shooters in their first attempt for the Bianchi Cup, a Newcomer Orientation will be held at the Competitors’ Meeting, also attended by former and current champions and the Match Staff.
To help during these tough economic times, we have instituted a lower entry cost and a “bring a buddy” option. If a competitor brings a friend who has never competed in the Bianchi Cup before, each competitor receives a reduced entry fee. We have also reduced fees for juniors, production firearms, active duty military, and those who register early.
For more information about the 2011 MidwayUSA/NRA Bianchi Cup or to compete, please visit the NRAhq website.

At Action Target, we know the recent economy affects everyone in different ways. That is why we are finding new and creative ways to help agencies take their used items, like old guns & ammo, and turn them into credit toward purchases in the future. Take for example our recent partnership with Southern Belle Brass. When a department collects their spent brass casings, they contact us and we arrange to have those items picked up and sent to Southern Belle Brass. They then weigh the items and send Action Target a check and the amount is credited to that department’s account allowing them to purchase Portable Steel Targets, Clearing Traps , Portable Runner systems or any other item they may need.
We have now created a new way agencies can reinvest in their firearms programs lessening the money lost to their city, county or department’s general fund.
Does this look familiar? Most departments and agencies have guns that are no longer in service simply lying around, which is why we have developed a trade-in option that makes those items work for you. We accept any amount of old duty firearms, confiscated guns, class 3 weapons, and ammunition. Turn your old guns & ammo into cash.
These trucks contain over 16,000 guns collected from the Los Angeles area in a single year. Our new trade-in option allows the Los Angeles department to turn these guns to be turned into new targets and equipment for their training program!
Here is how it works:
sold for cash or trade in value
stripped for parts value & destroyed
on-site stripping (250 gun minimum)
distributor strip & destroy service available
sold for trade value
stripped for parts value & destroyed
on-site stripping (750 gun minimum)
distributor strip & destroy service available
Class 3 Weapons
Transferable: Collector sales
Non-Transferable: Parts value & destruction
Case lots: all calibers accepted
Sold for value or traded for another caliber
Confiscated: options available
This program is ATF-NFA approved with bids provided by Policetrades.com
We accept any quantity of firearms from 1-10,000
We offer a parts stripping & destruction program to provide value for agencies unable to trade duty, confiscated and/or surrendered guns
Use this credit towards any of your range projects or equipment with Action Target or Law Enforcement Targets. No expiration.
With today’s budgets, let us help you enhance your training with our new products. Simply look around your department or agency, find the guns, ammunition or firearms that you are not using and send them to us for credit today towards future purchases!
