Moving Target Range Fixtures

Volume 26, Issue 1
Author: 

THE following article on the construction of certain fixtures on M range (moving target) at Camp Elliott, San Diego County, California, is submitted with the thought that some of the fixtures described may be of value to others in the construction of a similar range, or to improve ranges already in use.

It fell to the lot of the Anti-Tank Platoon, Sixth Marines, to build the first moving target range at Camp Elliott. The range constructed was satisfactory and the first moving target training at Camp Elliott was completed without undue trouble.
