Abstract : This report allows the range manager interested in choosing a bullet trap to narrow the field of traps to those traps which are applicable to his individual needs. The analysis presented here assesses the feasibility of using commercially available bullet traps on four types of small arms ranges: 25 meter, Automated Field Fire, Automated Record Fire, and Combat Pistol Qualification Course. This report also describes the potential benefits of bullet traps, highlighting the environmental considerations associated with the application of bullet traps on military small arms ranges.
