Targets have remained mostly the same for the past century or so, but that’s about to change.
A new startup named Autonomous Alloys released a teaser for their new target system and we are seriously impressed. According to the company their patent-pending technology provides the first digitally controlled, ballistic steel target system with audio and visual feedback. Through the use of Wi-Fi and clever software the system offers a fully automated, micro-second level control of a target’s position. These advanced features could turn your trip to the range into a whole new experience due to the steel target stay-down, double tap, and hit detection mechanics.
Imagine competing with a friend at the range to see who can get the most double-taps on a target in a set amount of time. With this system there is also no need to go down range to reset targets because the steel plates automatically reset with a magnetic catch. Right now their system is rated up to 9mm because the marker LED’s are protected with polycarbonate “bullet proof” glass.
This might be the closest you can get to a video game at a real life range.
