Challenge Targets Awarded Contract at Tactical Defense Institute
Ft. Thomas, Ky. - Challenge Targets was recently awarded the contract to update the main lower range at Tactical Defense Institute in West Union Ohio. The new shooting range equipment is scheduled for installation later this month and will include (12) new torso shape steel targets.
These shooting targets are made from through hardened AR500 plate. The shape is precision laser cut to minimize heat and preserve the hardness of the steel. The plates are mounted using hardened carriage bolts, die springs and nylon lock nuts. This combination of hardware minimizes fatigue and reduces the risk bullet fragments splashing back toward the shooter.
“After a full season of testing, Challenge Targets product showed no cracking or stress problems that were encountered with the welded products provided by other manufacturers.” John Motil – TDI Facilities Manager.
John Benner and the team at TDI offer a wide range self-defense and firearms training courses. They are one of the most respected and well know training facilities in the United States and we are very proud to be selected for this project.
