Our Roots

Advanced Training Systems (ATS Targets) was founded in 1973 to develop innovative decision-making live-fire training equipment for law enforcement and defense firearm training professionals. Since the inception and invention of the Duel-A-Tron© shoot/don't shoot training system, ATS Targets has been building live-fire shooting ranges for military, law enforcement, and civilian security agencies. Known for product quality, ATS Targets has developed an enviable reputation for corporate integrity and product innovation. ATS Targets is known for superior designs and durability with minimal service requirements. Over the decades, ATS Targets has developed multiple product lines serving our customers’ key training needs along with several one-of-a-kind training systems to suit unique needs.We strive to provide the best possible solutions to give our customers the tools they need to stay safe and protect their communities. With decades of innovation, ATS Targets continues to be the preferred supplier of live-fire training equipment.

The company moved from its longtime location at 4524 Highway 61 N, Saint Paul (White Bear Lake), MN 55110 to 304 Main St. E., Norwood Young America, MN 55397. We are focused on building upon the great legacy of ATS Targets' innovative products with the latest technology, the best thought in advanced firearms training, and excellent after-sale service. We strive to ensure that our customers have a positive experience with the purchase and use of our products and services.

Today, ATS Targets assists in planning and building new live-fire shooting ranges, rehabilitating existing ranges, and developing innovative target training systems to enhance the realism of our customers’ present firearms training programs. ATS Targets offers three major classes of products: qualification shooting ranges, tactical (or dynamic) target systems, and modular live-fire shoot houses.

Our qualification shooting ranges provide a range of targets, from simple paper targets to more advanced steel targets. Our tactical (or dynamic) target systems are designed to simulate real-world scenarios, and our modular live-fire shoot houses enable users to customize their range to their specific training needs.
