Why Newbold Targets?
UPA Range is one of the first ranges in the US to incorporate the now legendary ‘NEW BOLD TARGET SYSTEM PRODUCTS” into range training and exciting shooting experiences. Our recent investment of hundreds of dollars into a complete new set of New Bold Targets brings a new dimension into recreational and skill building shooting fun. Unlike the injuries we so often would witness when other inexperienced ranges would use the old fashion “Bowling Pins” for shooting events causing ricochet bullet fragments dispersing into uncontrollable directions (usually at the shooter), these targets are completely void of any potential splash back if used properly.
Often advertised as an alternative to shooting steel targets, however, we have invested in “the best quality Steel Targets Money can buy: “Action Target Steel” and exclusively shoot this steel ONLY with non-toxic frangible ammunition. Therefore, we can and do shoot within inches of the steel with no safety concerns. But keep in mind, we are certified “Shooting on Steel Instructors”; certified on the proper use of training with steel targets. [see more about shooting on steel courses in the ‘Training’ Section of this Web site]
At UPA range we take you to a new dimension away from the Neanderthal, archaic boring linier experience of “SHOOTING ON PAPER’ so now join us for some real action! Let’s take a look at the revolutionary innovation UPA range which has been at the forefront of all things shooting : “New Bold Targets” since 1996.
A summary in the company’s own words: (from the web site: www.newboldtargets.com)
“Newbold Targets give today‘s shooters a logical alternative to paper and steel targets. Shooters everywhere, whether law enforcement trainers or weekend plinkers, seem to want lots of action.
Conventional targets offer little in the way of non-stop action. You can shoot paper and raise your scope or field glasses to see your hits or… you can shoot steel and hear your hits—but indoors or out, steel can be dangerous—it can splatter and ricochet bullets back to yourself and spectators. They rust, often have sharp edges and a rack of steel targets can be very heavy. Plus, if you have to walk down-range every few minutes to reset your targets… that kind-of takes the fun out of it…
Enter Newbold… we were the first to introduce reactive elastomer targets. When our specially formulated ElastiMAX™ material takes a hit, the bullet passes through without breaking up—the bullet doesn’t splatter. And as the bullet passes through, enough energy is applied to the target to knock it around, flip it back-and-forth or knock it down. Our L-Series™ and HangTuff™ targets need no resetting and the K-D Pivot™ (knock-down/stay-down) targets can be reset with a string or you can reset them manually.
By far, the most impressive thing about Newbold targets is that they take the hits. An 8″ diameter L-Series™ target can take over 1,000 hits with .45 caliber roundnose bullets.
Newbold is providing shooters worldwide with exciting new target alternatives to paper and steel. For young and old, beginner and expert, Newbold Targets spark renewed interest in reactive target shooting. They are currently being used in law enforcement training throughout the U.S., …”
