Get the best of both targets in one conveniently-sized package featuring double reactivity and tactical training functionality.

The Rimfire Tactical Hostage combines the reactive functionality of both the Rimfire Hostage and the Rimfire Tactical Torso. With this power duo, you can train for multiple tactical scenarios and keep your shooting sessions exciting by varying your drills to utilize both hit zones. With the swinging rear plate, you can practice target location and shot accountability, and with the reactive center hit zone, you can reinforce accurate shots to the center mass zone.

The shooting surfaces of the Rimfire Tactical 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, and the no weld reactive back plate is easily can be rotated to extend the life of your target.

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 Tactical Hostage is designed for use with .22 rimfire ammunition only.

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.
