Yes. This will require a “Tactical” application be added to the design of the range in order to accommodate safe operations for shooters beyond the traditional firing line. On a traditional, “Fixed” firing line range, shooters are static meaning they stay in one location (shooting stall) and actuate their target distances by use of a target retriever system. The overhead baffle system is designed for any high shots to be ultimately directed downrange and into the bullet trap. A range that has a “Tactical” application added allows shooters to move freely within the “tactically” treated area to engage targets. A tactical range will have continuous overhead baffle coverage to encapsulate any high or errant shots from coming back down on shooters while engaged in shooting maneuvers down range. Various sidewall treatments are also added for safety from errant shots or over-shots due to training maneuvers. Various wall treatments can range from capturing errant shots to occasional planned shots to the walls, and finally to continuously planned shots to the walls. This last design creates a 180-degree range and should be used for advanced training and experienced shooters only.
