Shooting Range Equipment - Action Target Builds its First Shooting Range in South America

  1. 1. ACTION TARGET BUILDS ITS FIRSTSHOOTING RANGE IN SOUTH AMERICABy:  Acon  Target
  2. 2. Acon  Target  recently  installed  a  new  shoongrange  in  Brazil  for  the  State  Civil  Police  of  Riode  Janeiro  (PCERJ).  This  is  the  first  range  builtby  Acon  Target  in  South  America  and  marks  amilestone  for  the  company  as  it  connues  tobranch  into  internaonal  markets.
  3. 3. The  new  range  was  purchased  by  thePCERJ  in  a  push  to  increase  trainingstandards  for  state  and  local  lawenforcement,  but  will  also  supporttraining  for  special  opera2ons  unitsfrom  other  states  around  Brazil  aswell.  It  features  an  open  air  11-­‐laneshoong  range  with  user-­‐friendlytarget  retrieval  systems  fromMancom  and  a  nine-­‐room  shoothouse  facility.
  4. 4. To  ensure  bullet  containment,  thenew  range  also  includes  a  steelfunnel  bullet  trap  and  safety  baffleswhich  provide  ballisc  protecon  forthe  shoong  area.  There  is  no  roofon  the  range  to  allow  for  naturalvenlaon,  but  the  safety  bafflesinstalled  make  sure  no  rounds  havethe  chance  to  escape.
  5. 5. One aspect of the range that isespecially important to the Braziliangovernment is its effect on theenvironment.The PCERJ range utilizes technologyfrom Action Target to ensure lead dustand debris are safely contained andcollected for recycling.
  6. 6. As  a  bullet  strikes  the  armor  steelplate  of  the  Total  Containment  Trap(Acon  Target’s  patented  steelfunnel  bullet  trap),  it  is  forcedthrough  the  small  horizontal  openingin  the  middle  of  the  funnel.  Once  ithas  passed  through  the  opening,  thebullet  enters  the  deceleraonchamber  where  it  spins  unl  it  losesenergy.  The  bullet  then  falls  into  atrough  where  it  is  funneled  into  oneof  many  plasc  canisters.
  7. 7. The  threat  of  lead  dust  created  bythe  impact  of  the  bullet  is  alsoeliminated  through  a  Dust  ColleconUnit  which  uses  negave  pressure  topull  dust  and  air-­‐borne  toxins  towardthe  rear  of  the  bullet  trap  where  itenters  a  filtering  system.  This  systemremoved  99.98%  of  lead  and  othermaterials  before  the  air  is  releasedinto  the  environment.
  8. 8. Brazilian officials are also grateful for thesafety the new range will provide officersduring training situations. The old facility oftenused wood as backstops for shooting drills andpresented a significant ricochet danger fortrainees. The new range allows for nearly limitlessuse of tactical weapons from handguns to fullyautomatic rifles with complete containment. Thatassurance makes for a healthy environmentwhere law enforcement trainers can push officersto the limit without putting them in harmʼs way.
  9. 9. Rio  de  Janeiro’s  law  enforcementofficers  will  also  be  pushed  to  thelimit  as  they  run  intensive  taccaldrills  in  the  new  nine-­‐room  ModularArmored  Tac2cal  Combat  House(MATCH).  Equipped  with  a  catwalkand  ballisc  walls,  law  enforcementteams  can  now  pracce  essentialclose  quarter  skills  like  room  clearingand  hallway  navigaon  with  live  fireweapons  while  under  close  watchfrom  above.
  10. 10. The  PCERJ  range’s  grand  opening  will  be  held  at  theend  of  June  when  it  becomes  fully  funconal  as  a  lawenforcement  training  facility,  but  tours  have  beenongoing  for  those  aXending  the  LAAD  Defense  andSecurity  Internaonal  Exhibion  held  this  week  in  Riode  Janeiro.  Acon  Target  is  excited  to  have  installedthis  new  shoong  range  in  Brazil  and  is  confident  thatthis  important  company  milestone  is  just  the  first  ofmany  new  Acon  Target  ranges  in  South  America.
