A Collapsible Every Day Carry Target – Lighter Than a Gallon of Milk!

The Scout target from Action Target. New at NRAAM 2018.

Meet “Scout,” the new every day carry target from Action Target.  Scout is a no-tools required,  collapsible target that weighs no more than a gallon of milk.  I had to look it up — a gallon of milk weighs 8.6 pounds.

We got a chance to take a look at Scout during the 2018 NRAAM.  Clay and I walked away rather impressed.

As you’ll see in the photos below, setting it up and taking it down is a cinch.  It really is a target that you can take on-the-go with minimal effort.

But the emphasis on convenience does not come at the cost of quality.  Scout is tough.  We were told that we could stand on the legs without bending them.  So we did.  And sure enough, they were no worse for the wear.

Price for Scout should be in the ballpark of $300.  For more information visit ActionTarget.com.

All set up.  The 2×4 is not included.

Taking it down is a matter of just pulling some pins.

What’s cool is that if you need to change the plate, the legs double as a wrench.

How the plate is held up.

Putting the plate in is easy. The holder or receiver for the plate is adjustable. You can move it down the 2×4 if you need to or even add another plate.

Easy day.

    I likee!
    Don’t know if I’d hump one in a crossbreed but 4 or 5 in the back of the jeep for a impromptu loud toy party in the boonies would be good

    “As you’ll see in the photos below, setting it up and taking it down is a sinch”. What? No spell check? Cinch. Not to be an ass, but c’mon!

    does it come with a collapsible 2×4?

    The 2×4 is for practice with your BUDK ninja sword. When the magazines are empty, the firearms have been thrown, and there’s nothing left break out the mall ninja sword and scream like a banshee!

    I agree if it isn’t claimed to be some kind of tactical widget it must not be any good ? HA HA HA

    Does it come with a tactical style 2×4 or do you have to supply your own? I’m not crazy about the brightness of the wood grain as it can potentially give away position easily.

      Silly, just use one of your camo socks to cover it!
