More paper targets with updated photography are planned in 2009, including liquor store and bank robbery scenarios
Blaine, Minn. (PRWEB) January 15, 2009
A new line of four-color, paper targets to help law enforcement officers prepare for threats against schoolchildren in different scenarios will be introduced at the 2009 SHOT Show by Law Enforcement Targets, a full-service target and accessories distributor.
Law enforcement expert presentations and product demonstrations by designers of some of the company's most popular targets also will be featured at this year's booth.
The five new paper targets simulate the increasing number of threats in today's schools based on contemporary settings and real-life photography. The targets provide various hostage situations and angles, including scenarios where the threat is not the only person in the "line of sight." One hostage scenario is geared to second responders of a threat.
"Our goal is to provide the opportunity for repetitive training among law enforcement officers to raise their confidence if they ever get called into a school threat," according to Cherie Manning, general manager for Law Enforcement Targets. "More paper targets with updated photography are planned in 2009, including liquor store and bank robbery scenarios," says Manning.
Partners of Law Enforcements Targets who will present topics at the company's booth during the show include:
Dave Spaulding, a retired law enforcement officer with 28 years of experience and writer for Law Enforcement magazine, who will discuss "Combative Firearms Concepts";
Lou Ann Hamblin of LouKa Tactical Training, Wade Rorich of Bushido Tactical and Mike Christoff of Mobile Tactics also will be available in the booth.
Other shooting targets to be featured include 3D paper targets, a plastic knockdown target and stand, plastic male body with hit reactive stand, remote control target system, and steel targets.
