Las Vegas, NV -( - Springfield Armory received the Action Target safety award for the highest standard of safety during the shooting 2018 Industry Day at the Range event held on January 22nd at the Boulder Rifle and Pistol Range in Boulder City, Nevada. The Action Target Safety Award was created to acknowledge the Industry Day at the Range exhibitor that fostered the highest level of firearms safety during the shooting event.

Safety auditors judged each of the shooting exhibitors. The score was determined by basic safety criteria such as providing hearing and eye protection, control of ammo and safe handling of firearms on the firing line. The score card also gave points for higher levels of safety such as posted rules, first aid kit at shooting station, shooting coach at station, etc. More than 90 Industry Day exhibitors were judged on their firearms safety practices by safety auditors.

Springfield was awarded the Action Target Safety Award at Action Target’s SHOT Show booth (#14568) and has been a long-time supporter of this range day event going back 16 years.
