Competitive shooters will soon be able to shoot on a new e-target at the Reade Range in western Pennsylvania, the HEXTA e-target system. The HEXTA targets, which are making their U.S. debut, are produced by HEX Systems of Australia. Although gaining steam, the range of e-target products available has been very limited. Ten lanes of HEXTA targets will be installed at the Reade Range early next year.

The HEXTA e-target system uses eight acoustic sensors for high reliability. A built in web-server with Wi-Fi allows any device connected with a web browser to be used as a monitor. Shooters, spectators and scorers can quickly view shots at any target on the range.

HEX Systems is the current market leader of e-targets in Australia. Over the past seven years they have made 40 HEXTA e-target range installations. The HEXTA e-target system was tested at Reade Range earlier this year, and the company says the target system is compliant for all NRA and CMP high power shooting disciplines, as well as ICFRA target dimensions.

Dmitri Kazakov and Bruce Daniel, co-founders of HEX Systems said, “Our founding team of shooters and engineers had a vision for achieving the highest standards of precise accuracy, shot-by-shot reliability and user simplicity. Our patented design has produced a track record over recent years of both match-validated accuracy, and shot recognition reliability where our e-targets have not observed a single occurrence of a 'lost or ghost' shot.”

Says Scott Thomas of Reade Range, “Our club wanted to add e-target functionality to our range, and having researched the various products available, we selected the HEXTA Target System due to its unique design features. We are excited to be the first in North America to acquire the match-tested HEXTA, and are eagerly awaiting their installation and commissioning sometime in early 2017.” Thomas added, “With a set of 10 targets, we feel we have sufficient shooter capacity to greatly simplify and support our needs for fast response, accurate, simple and reliable shooting day in and day out.”

The North American distributor of the HEXTA Target systems, Rick Ratzlaff of goBallistic said, “We have been seeking ranges in America that would seriously consider our market-entry program, and create a “done in USA” range network of the proven HEXTA. When installed, through our proprietary web-based, real-time match administration system, all interested ranges will soon be able to watch the functionality of the system on-line as it is used at Reade Range.”

With their combined experience serving competitive high power shooters, HEX and goBallistic are a new choice for clubs and ranges that are considering e-target systems. Learn more at www.hexsystems.com.au.
