Who is Newbold?

Newbold Targets, headquartered in Middlesex, New Jersey, was founded by two brothers and their father in 1995. The threesome was looking for a safer alternative to steel targets which would still be reactive and just as fun to shoot at but would be much safer and could eliminate ricochet and bullet splatter, especially at close range.

After testing a number a designs and mediums, this family of engineers decided on improving a formula they were already familiar with for elastomer, a polymer which has the natural properties of rubber but looks similar to plastic. The brother’s formula was a success and the company has been providing tough, yet flexible self-sealing, reactive polymer targets which are much safer than steel for nearly 20 years.
