RANGE EQUIPMENT
Action Target is the Global Leader in Shooting Ranges, Development, Equipment, and Services.
Designed, Engineered and Installed by Action Target.  Starting with their in-house range design & drafting to their engineering ASTM UL industry standards to their manufacturing facility to their professional installation, range maintenance & service programs, they created our State of the Art Facility so we can provide our customers and families with the highest quality, safest environment available on the market.  Don't take our word for it, do your own research and see how many ranges they have completed for the Military, Law Enforcement, and Civilian Companies.

Clear Ballistic Walls

All Lanes have Clear Ballistic Rated Stalls to provide you with the safest environment available.  This open view design allows our safety officers to better assist you when required and promotes a much brighter environment.   For the advanced shooters, you will now be able to react to your friends during quick draw competitions​.

Bright Stall Lights

In addition to the abundant light sources down and up range, and the unobstructed flow of light through the clear shooting stalls, Each shooting position will have its own 4 adjustable LED lights to fine tune your already bright environment.  Even your target retriever has a light mounted above the targets.  Dark ranges are a thing of the past.  

Adjustable Bay Lighting

The bright LED lights uprange and down range are fully adjustable.  Your RSO can create any combination of lighting needed.  Turn up your booth light, turn off your downrange light but keep the uprange light on to create contrast on the target. Learn to shoot in the dark, your RSO can turn the lights off behind you but keep the lights on your target or turn all the lights off and use the red light in your stall.

Wide Stall Tables with Shelves

To complement our open view design we have designed all lanes against the walls to be 5 feet wide and all center lanes to be 4 feet wide.  The tables are covered in non-slip rubber and have shelves attached underneath.  These shelves keep your equipment organized and remove the need to leave equipment on the floor.  The tables are retractable and can be repositioned or removed to fit your needs. Tactical shooters will be able to transition from their carbine to pistol without hitting the table. 

TARGET RETRIEVERS

Every target retriever is Touch Screen controlled and programmable.  The retrievers can be controlled to go to specific distances, at varying speeds, while pivoting and turning 360, strobing lights as you try to react and beat the programs. You can shoot at the target as it races toward you.  In addition to the already bright range lights, Each retriever has its own independent light source mounted above the target. No matter where you choose to position your target, it will be brightly illuminated. 

PUT IT ALL TOGETHER!

Watch the Video above to see one of our Customer's most popular drills.

Combine our 3D Targets with a T-Shirts,  add an anatomy target, program your retriever with the speed you desire, test your reaction time, draw from a holster or concealment, rapid-fire until the target goes away and enjoy one of the most advanced target systems around.


A TRUE TACTICAL BAY

Action Target designed and built our Tactical bay.  Half of the cost of our facility went into its design.  The Baffels are overlapping the up and down range walls and ceilings are covered in high density rubber.  A robust quadruple HVAC system to keep the air cleaner inside than outside the range and fully monitored locally and remotely from Carrey's Small Arms Range facility.

SOUNDPROOFING

Each bay is completely soundproofed.  The walls and ceilings uprange and down have been treated to reduce the sound reverberation created by the firearms.  The ceiling baffles and walls have air gaps between the soundproofing and attachment points.  By dividing the 22 lanes into 4 bays, and grouping specific firearms in each bay, we have created a much quieter environment. 

RUBBER BERMS

We choose our Multiple Bay Bullet Traps based on shooter safety.  This allows Guardian to provide the shooter with the widest selection of firearms and ammunition. All of our memberships include the ability to use pistols, shotguns, carbines, and rifles.
 
Here at Guardian, you can rest assured that our Bullet Traps are monitored daily, maintained and cleaned by professional range maintenance personnel.

CLIMATE CONTROL
We spared no expense to give you
a TRUE Triple Filtered HVAC system.
To provide you and your family with the cleanest most comfortable environment available, we choose Carey's Small Arms Range Ventilation.  Their State-of-the-art system ensures that the air inside the range remains clean and smoke-free. Each one of our four bays has its own independent, fully air-conditioned, heated and triple filtered system.
  
Carey's is the only range ventilation supplier that has 24 hours, seven days a week response center that can support and troubleshoot the range ventilation system through the direct digital control system.  Their level of commitment to ensuring that our range is fully operational and functioning is extraordinary.


Carey's has specialized their designs in the control of contaminants created by indoor ranges and are currently known as a National leader in the field.  Carey's Ventilation Systems are the best performing and most efficient systems available on the market today.  Every system they have built exceeds NIOSH, EPA, and OSHA air quality standards and maintains a 100% success rate in industrial hygiene.  They have established a benchmark of quality and excellence that NO other company can claim.

Carey's has worked with the United States Navy to develop the current range ventilation standards as described in the Unified Force Criteria. Carey’s wrote the ventilation standards for the GSA, edited the standards for the United States Air Force as published in the ETL, and has been a consultant for the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center (Department of Homeland Security) and FBI.  
 
They have completed hundreds of indoor range ventilation systems at facilities that have met all of the required standards, including projects for US Navy, US Air Force, US Marshals, US Army, Police Departments, Universities, Private Ranges, Commercial Ranges, and Gun Manufacturers.  Don't take our word for it, do your own research and see how many Civilian, Law Enforcement and Military ranges they have created.

POLICIES & PROCEDURES
To maintain a safe, entertaining and empowering experience.
Policies & Procedures Defined
Please keep in mind, the following policies and procedures (p&p) are in place to keep everyone safe.  Some of the p&p are listed because some people have abused safety rules.  If you witness anything that makes you feel uncomfortable please come to get our RSOs so we may address the situation for you.  Remember our goal is to provide shooters with an Entertaining and Empowering experience while maintaining the safest range possible. 
 
REQUIRED IDENTIFICATION - Valid Government Issued Picture Identification for Law Abiding Adults (18 or older). Minors (under 18) please see "Age Requirements" below.  We hold on to your Identification while you are shooting.

LANE RESERVATIONS - We offer lane reservations to members only.  Your membership selection dictates the time frame at which you can reserve your lanes.  All members may reserve a lane a month in advance for their birthday.  Reservations will be held for 15 minutes then given to the next shooter in need.  We reserve the right to refund the unused portion of a membership if a member abuses their reservation privileges .  
 
SHOOTERS PER LANE - 2 shooters are allowed per lane.  When the range is crowded, more than 2 shooters create too many obstacles for our Range Safety Officers to see around.
 
HOURLY FEES - After you are checked in and assigned a lane, your time starts.  Our system gives you a 10 minute grace period.  5 minutes to go your lane and set up and 5 minutes to gather your things and check out.  If you continue to shoot past 70 minutes, our range system continues to record your additional time.  You will be charged for every 15 minutes you choose to extend your range time.  Our normal rates for the 1st shooter is $20 per hour or $20 for the 1st hour and $5 for every 15 minutes thereafter.  The 2nd shooter on the same lane is charged $10 per hour or $10 for the 1st hour and $2.50 for every 15 minutes thereafter.  You are responsible for keeping track of your time.  We suggest setting an alarm on your phone.   Your enjoyment is our main goal and we know life can play funny tricks on us all, so our staff will make judgment calls on all additional fees and limit them as much as possible.

ENDING YOUR SESSION - If you have 2 shooters on the lane, one shooter may finish before the other.  Once a shooter is clocked out they can no longer shoot on the lane.  An individual can return to the lane to accompany the other shooter but must not use the lane again.

FIREARM RENTALS - Only Law Abiding US Citizens with valid drivers licenses will be permitted to rent firearms.  21 years old to rent handguns, long guns, and NFA items, 18 years old to rent long guns.  All state and federal laws must be followed and you must meet one of the following criteria: Bring in a gun of your own to prove you have access to one, bring another shooter with you on the range.  We offer a Private Range Safety Officer for $25 an hour if needed.  You must fire our factory ammunition through our rentals. 
 
AUTHORIZED CALIBERS - WE ARE IN THE PROCESS OF CHANGING OUR AMMO LIST TO ALLOW MOST CALIBERS.  Our backstops are rated for .50 BMG;  however, our state of the art retrievers can handle less due to the advanced electronics.  We have caught individuals attempting to destroy them with direct hits to sensitive locations.  The addition of new cameras in our range now covers the retrieves and will allow us to hold the criminals accountable.  Until the change occurs, the current list is as follows, Handguns: .22, .380, 9mm, .38, .357, .40, .44, .45, 10mm, 50 AE.  Rifle: .22, .223, 556x45mm, .300 AAC, 7.62x39mm, .308 Win (No Steel).  Shotguns:  00 Buck, Slug (No Steel).
