Challenge your accuracy with the simulated hostage scenario designed to create accountability for every missed shot.

Hitting your target can be challenging, but when there’s a no-shoot target in the way, it can get a whole lot more difficult. The Rimfire Hostage not only trains you to hit your target, but teaches you to avoid what you’re not supposed to shoot. This reactive system is great for training accuracy and speed, and the immediate feedback of clanging steel reinforces good shooting habits.

The shooting surfaces of the Rimfire Hostage are all made of 1/4" AR500 armor steel and are designed to take years of heavy use with .22 rimfire ammunition*. The rear swinging plate (which simulates the bad guy in a hostage situation) is easily installed without tools and uses gravity to swing from side to side when shot. The provided Evil Roy Stand also makes the Rimfire Rectangle easily portable with a collapsible base and convenient carrying handle.

NOTE: The stand and feet are made of mild steel and are not intended to withstand the force of a bullet. Shooting the stand and feet may result in damage.

*The Rimfire Hostage is designed for use with .22 rimfire ammunition only. Using ammunition other than .22 rimfire may result in the malfunction of the target’s reactive features or even damage to the target. Please refer to the Steel Target Safety Rules before shooting on any steel target, and learn more about steel hardness and target design by reading The Science Behind Steel Targets.


Can I shoot my rimfire .17 HMR on this target?: While the .17 HMR is a rimfire round, its velocity is too great for the reactive mechanisms of the target. This target is designed for .22 rimfire ammunition only.

Can I shoot centerfire handgun rounds on this target?: While this target is made of 1/4" AR500 armor steel which can withstand the force of a centerfire handgun round, shooting it with more powerful rounds will cause it to wear out quickly and cause the reactive features of the target to malfunction.

Is the entire target made of armor steel?: The target head, reactive swinging plate, and rear brackets are all made of AR500 armor steel. The rear brackets are made of armor steel to withstand the wear and tear from the friction of the reactive swinging plate. The stand is made of mild steel, but is designed to effectively shed bullets.

Why is the target head angled?: All of Action Target’s steel target heads are slanted downward to deflect the majority of bullet splatter toward the feet of the target.
