The Portable Trap is designed primarily for use in shoot houses and other tactical environments where shots are less frequent yet more precise.
To function safely and effectively, a portable trap must not only have a steel back, but steel sides as well. Designs that do not incorporate steel sides should be avoided as bullet splatter eating through wooden sides creates an obvious hazard. All Action Target Portable Traps have steel sides and are made of the finest through hardened AR500 (or AR550) steel for maximum safety and durability.
The Portable Trap is essentially a steel box with a plywood front and patented side baffles. Bullets fired at the trap pass through the plywood, shatter on the steel, and fall harmlessly to the bottom of the box. When the plywood face becomes too full of holes to safely contain the splatter, simply remove it, clean out the steel box, and attach a new piece of plywood. The internal perimeter is fitted with a deflector system to help contain splatter and protect the edges of the plywood. We also offer an optional Linatex self-healing rubber lining that adds an extra layer of protection for the shooter, and with a hanging kit, the Portable Trap can easily be inverted.
