Our Story began on a range in West Virginia. Two of our founders, Ethan and Kirby, had been spending time in West Virginia for a training course at Storm Mountain Training Center when they experienced malfunctions and failures in some of the steel target systems that were being used.
One of the observations from our team was the lack of audible feedback from these target systems. Many of these targets showed fatal designs and concepts, which were a root cause for their premature failures. Cracked welds, broken brackets, unstable bases are a common flaw with many systems, and the market is littered with these poor designs. The training course continued throughout the week, and Ethan and Kirby truly enjoyed the learning experience, but a seed was planted that eventually would grow and blossom into what you see today. Although we live and manufacture our targets in Pennsylvania: TA Targets was born out of necessity in West Virginia.
We are committed to creating a culture of protectors and defenders through innovative training targets and systems.
TA Targets was born after seeing a serious need in the industry. While steel target manufacturers litter the landscape by the dozens, we realized that there was no other target manufacturer is truly interested in changing culture and creating a community of defenders. The name of the game for many of these companies is making novelty targets as cheap as possible, and the casualty of this mindset is quality and value for customers purchasing these products. When a company’s only interest is making a product as cheap as possible, rather than being a part of a customers journey, is it even possible to offer true Value to that customer? Value goes further than the price point, and it is important that your dollars are invested in a target that will be a part of your story for years to come.
