The ideal shoot house round™

These potentially lethal polymer projectiles are NOT to be fired at personnel but are ideal for target shooting, indoors or out, for basic firearms training or advanced tactical shooting exercises. CQT® or Close Quarters Target ammunition are an integral part of the Simunition® reduced-energy training system.



Requiring no special ballistic infrastructure or sophisticated bullet trap devices, these potentially lethal cartridges can be used on reactive, paper or cardboard targets in urban or suburban environments, indoors or out, in improvised facilities or on conventional ranges, without risk of damage to the training facilities. The 9 mm CQT®cartridge produce recoil similar to live ammunition and feature tactical accuracy up to 30 feet (10 meters). The 5.56 mm CQT® features tactical accuracy up to 100 feet (30 meters). Both calibres are considered a highly effective small-cartridge training system by professionals worldwide.

CQT® Conversion Kits

To further enhance the realism of its training exercises, Simunition® has developed simple, inexpensive, easy-to-install conversion kits and bolts that allow its CQT® ammunition to be fired from the officer's own service weapons with near-normal recoil.


An integral and essential part of a training system which, first and foremost, targets user safety, these kits help preclude the inadvertent chambering of live ammunition and ensure the proper operation and cycling of the weapons with CQT® training ammunition.
