Abstract:

The first edition of this document was published in August of 1997. Since that time a great deal more test and evaluation has been done by both the military and private sector in the area of bullet containment systems discussed herein. This revised document is intended to highlight the extent and quality of these new findings and present them in a manner that the information may be reviewed and used by others in the design, construction andor remodeling of indoor and outdoor firing ranges. The U.S. Marine Corps The Marine Corps Logistics Base, Barstow MCLBB and the Maintenance Center at MCLBB do not endorse any particular commercial manufacturer of bullet trap systems. Any references contained herein by the author that may appear to be favorable to any manufacturer should not be construed by any party as an endorsement by the author of any particular manufacturer of bullet trap systems, but rather an overall endorsement of this newer bullet trap technology.
