UTM Portable Shoot House


    UTM, a manufacturer of non-lethal training ammunition, is now selling an updated version of the company’s portable training facility (PTF.) Since the training “house” is designed to contain only training ammunition, the walls are lightweight and can be moved to create a different layout each time a student goes in.

    The upgraded PTF has additional wall panels, attachment points and reinforcing to provide more possible configurations and longer useful life. The previous version of the PTF is shown here:

    From UTM:

    Traditional live-fire shoot houses not only have a limited training environment but are rendered ineffective almost immediately because users respond to floor plan memorization and not performance objectives.

    The PTF allows trainers to continuously reconfigure the lightweight walls into a multitude of tactical environments such as ‘4 ways’, ’T-intersections’ or ‘L-shaped’ hallways and more, all in the same facility or even break it up to accommodate multiple simultaneous training areas. The multi-purpose design allows for large or small rooms, short or long hallways, opposing or offset doorways and skill building exercises for multiple groups working simultaneously through varied drills including tactics, firearms, combatives, Force-on-Force or live fire training, low-light and scenario-based training.

    The PTF is only available from UTM RBT, and comes in standard configurations of 16’×24’ or 24’×24’ (custom sizes available upon request). It provides a multi-purpose training structure that is completely mobile, which sets up and breaks down quickly in order to transport it to a different environment for infinite training options, even in the same day. The facility packs down into 4ft duffle bags and can be stored anywhere.

    For trainers that do not have adequate facilities or would like an enhanced multifaceted solution, the PTF provides a safe, mobile, versatile and realistic training environment that can be customized to suit the individual needs of any agency or unit in any location.
