The Firing Area hut contains two shooting bays (Firing Points) and a Line Officer’s (LO’s) station. All shooting takes place from the right hand bay above which the main electronic target display is located; the left hand bay is for dry firing only. The range is operated from the LO’s station using the target control unit, and the electronic scoring system controller. The auxiliary target display for the electronic scoring system is also located at the LO’s station together with a telephone.
The moving target system comprises a rail mounted target trolley which is driven by a braked electric motor via a system of cables and pulleys. The electronic scoring system sensors and electronics are mounted on the target trolley and communicate with a fixed base station via a radio link. The motor, drive gear, switch gear, electronic scoring system base station and the ‘manual’ Marker’s station are all contained in the right hand butt (motor room). The Marker’s station contains a telephone and a scoring clock.
The range incorporates a sheltered Firing Area outside of the Running Boar Firing Area hut, and slots in the moving target parapet designed to accommodate target boards up to 20 inches (0.5 metres) wide for use as a 50 metre fixed target range.
