This is awsome!

A new system was just installed at the county range I volunteer at. There are actually two ranges. At the fifty yard range there are trolleys that place the target up to fifty feet away. A great place to shoot. At the 300 yard range, targets can be placed placed at 100, 200 or 300 yard distances by hand. There are two spotting scopes but if trying to look at a 300 yard target it may be obscured by a 100 yard target in the adjacent lane. Plus if all the lanes are in use there is a line at the spotting scopes. Not only that, trying to see a 22 caliber hole at 30 yards is challenging.

Now we have the new system. 10 lanes, 30 cameras, each camera set up to see the respective target. There is a tablet at each lane that can be used for displaying the target you are using. This is one of the booths showing the tablet:



Now, how cool is that?

That sounds like a dream range.

This range was originally built and designed for Law Enforcement. Just about every federal law enforcement agency has used it. I am talking about agencies like the FBI, IRS, Secret Service etc. All of the various LEOs in Utah use it. About four years ago the original foundation decided to get out of the business. They sold it to the county for about one third of the original $12 million dollar investment. Currently it is run by the County Parks and Recreation department. There are 3 full time employees and 150 volunteers (RSOs). I would have never envisioned the county commissioners doing something like this here. It is truly a joy for me to work at and use this facility.

That’s awesome. I don’t foresee anything like that happening here anytime soon.

I agree that is awesome, camera spotters. I doubt my low budget range will ever see something like that...heck when it's crowded they can't even keep the smoke cleared out or the clips on the target hangers. When Phil and I went the other week half the lanes we tried the remote target lines didn't work.
I can only dream about a range like that.
