This past Saturday, June 10th, Pass It On-Outdoor Mentors sponsored an extremely unique event held at Camp Atterbury just south of Indianapolis, IN. The event was held on one of Camp Atterbury’s pistol ranges that include computerized “pop-up” targets.
The targets are hinged at their forward edge and are mechanically raised and lowered via computer control. The surface of the target is sensitive to bullet impacts and can score either a “hit” (a strike on the periphery of the target) or a “kill” (a strike to either the central chest or head areas of the target). If the target is struck in the “kill” area it will automatically lower; otherwise, the target will remain up for it’s programmed duration.
