Action Target Announces The PT Scout
May 04, 2018
Action Target INC., manufacturer of modern shooting ranges and innovative target systems, has announced the release of a tool-free target system designed to utilize a 2x4, ring louder, maximize portability and allow for predictable splatter patterns.
The PT Scout is Action Target's first steel target that utilizes a 2x4. This steel target stand can quickly collapse and locks together for easy storage and transport. Because it can break down into such a small profile and weighs as much as a gallon of milk, it allows for maximum portability for every shooter.
"When developing The PT Scout with Tom Yost and World Champion Speed Shooter Max Michel, we set three objectives; that it would ring louder, be more portable, and be more safe for shooters to use than any other steel targets that are offered today, we met each objective." Chris Hess, Product Marketing Manager, Action Target.
The PT Scout is designed with a forward leaning 2x4. The smooth target plate sits on top in a bracket parallel to the wood. This means that bullets striking the plate are directed towards the ground and safely away from shooters, splatter and spall do not chew up the 2x4, a common problem in other 2x4 target stand systems. The target is also designed with a smooth target surface, integrating high-strength weld studs on the back of the target plate allowing sound waves to reverberate loudly, giving the shooter a much louder ring.
World Champion Speed Shooter Max Michel explains, "As a Pro Shooter, I get to shoot a lot but don't have the ability to store all my gear at the range. Therefore, I'm looking for something mobile and easy to set up. It's extremely light weight and easy to store in the back of the car. Once it's ready to go, it's the loudest ringing steel target I've shot yet. Not to mention the flat faced plate and angled design base makes it the safest target in the industry. I'm excited to get my season kicked off and training with the new PT Scout."
The PT Scout will be available this summer from Shop.ActionTarget.com. Multiple head plates will be available with package pricing for clubs and teams who compete in Steel Challenge, 3-Gun and Scholastic Action Shooting Program events.
