Action Target started in 1986 when its founders built a pneumatic turning target system for the Provo Police Department training curriculum. The need for dynamic and safe shooting equipment inspired the development of innovative technology such as the Total Containment Trap™. This patented steel bullet trap revolutionized the shooting range industry with its ability to guide projectiles into a deceleration chamber without total fragmentation. Action Target has continued to be the primary innovator in the business and currently has more than 4,000 products and holds over 40 patents.
While Action Target’s initial product line was developed for law enforcement, they also service the military and commercial sectors.
Action Target manufactures live-fire shooting range equipment. They are the only ballistic range product provider to perform 100% of our manufacturing in-house, including cutting, bending, and specialized welding on AR500 and AR550 steel plates. They have over 30 years of experience in fabricating steel baffles, traps, targets, and target controls in a 125,000 square foot manufacturing facility. Action Target also uses custom manufacturing processes that minimize the heat-affected zone during cutting, thereby maintaining the strength and ballistic properties of the steel. Furthermore, their ISO 9001 certification provides assurance that their equipment has been manufactured in accordance with our stringent quality standards.
