Meggitt Training Systems to highlight three key shooting range products at new NSSF event.
Suwanee, GA – From target carriers to bullet traps, Meggitt Training Systems will display and conduct demonstrations of its industry-leading live-fire solutions at the National Shooting Sports Foundation’s Range-Retailer Business Expo. The inaugural event, designed to connect range owners, operators and related retailers with industry providers of products, services and training, will be held on August 19-21 in Denver.
“Shooting range operators and associated retailers are encouraged to see how investment in Meggitt’s range equipment can increase their business and enhance safety,” said Jon Read, Meggitt’s live-fire systems director. “With more than nine decades of experience outfitting more than 13,600 ranges, no one understands that industry better than we do, and our continual investment to innovate demonstrates our enduring commitment.”
At the day-one range day, attendees can see the following two Meggitt products in use:
- The XWT ProImage® projected target system revolutionizes image and video targets for indoor shooting ranges. An industry first, the system is a compact video projector and camera system that attaches to Meggitt’s XWT target carrier and can move downrange to any distance on the track. Wirelessly connected to a 10” lane control unit mounted to the shooting stall, the system projects interactive games, digital videos and images that a shooter can upload onto white paper or cardboard targets. The onboard camera provides a streaming, close-up view of the target for instantaneous feedback, including bullet hole tracking displayed on a tablet. The XWT ProImage is a simple addition to any XWT GEN3 or GEN4 carrier, uses lithium batteries, and with the XWT, it docks and charges while in operation.
- The XWT GEN4 wireless target carrier builds on the industry’s first wireless, 360º turning system. The XWT GEN4 uses a lithium ion battery with a positive locking connection and ergonomic placement. This technology provides a 50% increase in battery watt hours. The new docking system improves contact design for faster, more reliable charging; that means more time using the XWT GEN4 and less time charging it. Programmable distraction lighting now integrates red, blue and white LEDs with four times the brightness of previous models. The chassis features a new side cover design for wheel overhead protection and prevention of brass drivetrain damage. Anti-static wheels eliminate grounding tinsel and reduce electrostatic discharge.
Meggitt products to be highlighted on the show floor during days two and three include an XWT GEN4, plus:
- The GranTrap™ granulated rubber bullet trap utilizes soft media to stop incoming rounds and capture them predominantly intact. This minimizes airborne lead dust, averts back-splatter and ricochet, and minimizes impact noise. The result is a cleaner and safer environment for shooting ranges, maximizing bullet recovery and recycling processes. A model of this product will be on display.
