LAS VEGAS, N.V. – – The Industry Day at the Range Safety Award, sponsored by Action Target, honors the participating company that demonstrates the highest standard of safety throughout the event. The 2023 Action Target Safety Award was awarded to Savage Arms at the Action Target SHOT Show booth on January 18. The winner of the Action Target Safety Award receives a $2,000 credit toward the 2024 Industry Day at the Range event.
“Action Target is proud to be a major sponsor of Industry Day. As the industry’s leading provider of live fire shooting ranges and training targets, Action Target recognizes the importance of promoting firearms safety and understands the importance of building the safest and most advanced products. We are proud to be part of this great event and honored to recognize and congratulate Savage Arms for taking the appropriate steps during Industry Day to promote firearms safety.” said Mike Birch, President, and CEO at Action Target.
Safety auditors judged shooting exhibitors during Industry Day, and the score was determined by range safety criteria such as providing hearing and eye protection, control of ammunition and safe handling of firearms on the firing line. Scoring also took into consideration the posting of rules, availability of first aid kits at the shooting stations and crowd management.
“The team at Savage is honored to receive the 2023 Action Target Safety Award at this year’s Industry Day at the Range,” said Beth Shimanski, Director of Marketing at Savage Arms. “Our team at Savage is comprised of passionate shooters and hunters that have consistently made safety a priority.
