HEXTA electronic targets were demonstrated for the first time at the National Rifle Association, Bisley, UK, on Sunday, 22nd January 2017. Two targets were used for a morning shoot at 1,000 yards by members of the Bisley-based Wandsworth Rifle Club on a very chilly Stickledown Range.
Australian HEX Systems Marketing Manager  Bruce Daniel and UK representative engineer Kevin Hill installed the target system the previous Tuesday and test shots were being fired within two hours.

First-time HEXTA users enjoyed the experience. Tom Laing-Baker, who put down the first string of ten with a creditable 50.9, was enthusiastic. “It’s an excellent system. Couldn’t fault it. It’s the way of the future!” he said.

The targets are being demonstrated by HEX Systems at the invitation of the NRA, who is conducting an evaluation of various brands of electronic target to assess their suitability for use on the historic Stickledown range, home of the annual Bisley Imperial Meeting.
