SureStrike Laser Training Bullet

Have you tried using a laser bullet for dry fire training?

I have tried it and it's amazing that with no trip to the range, no ammunition, no noise, I can reacquire lightning fast point shooting skills.

I can practice force on force shooting, and lots of different techniques; like how to respond to an intruder, what to do when there is a terror attack, and lots other scenarios.

The Laser-Ammo SureStrike allows any level of pistol user to practice totally safe marksmanship and handling drills with an actual weapon in any location, from the basement to the barracks. By pulling the trigger, the direct impact of the firing pin activates the SureStrike to emit a microprocessor controlled eye-safe laser pulse, a “shot” of red light, which simulates the point of impact where a bullet fired from the weapon would have struck.

Yes... but how do you train to handle the recoil?

Its not so much my first shot that is the problem. Its the next twelve.

Over the years I have used a number of laser-based dry firing devices.

First and foremost, let me say that dry firing is the #1 way to become a better shooter in any discipline. Read interviews with the champs in any shooting discipline, and they all agree, almost 100%. There are plenty of stories of top shooters who for whatever reason couldn't get access to a range for months, but just kept dry-firing at home. They'd show up for a competition after months without live fire and win the match.

Devices like you have that show point of impact are ok. But in my opinion it is far more helpful to have a device with the laser always on so that you can see the "trace" of your muzzle. I have lasers built into the grips of my defense guns, and dry firing with the laser on allows me to see subtle errors in my trigger pull and correct them. Many devices, perhaps the one you have, allow for an "always on" trace mode--try it and you'll see what I mean about it being superior to an "impact-only" system.

Recently I have started competing in a US sport called High Power, Service Rifle division. It is basically a precision rifle match at 600,300 and 200 yards using a semi-auto M16 with iron battle sights (no scopes), from standing, sitting and prone positions. I use a device (scatt) that shows me my muzzle path on a laptop:
as well as statistics that tell me things like if I am waiting too long to pull trigger, pulling it too soon, etc. These devices are also used by smallbore rifle shooters and 10m air rifle shooters for olympic disciplines that require extreme precision and muzzle path analysis.

mekubal-the thing about recoil is that it often creates bad habits if you practice with live ammo too much! Subconscious flinching often develops, especially with pistols. True, to really get rapid fire down you need to practice with live ammo, but handling recoil is actually quite easy once one has mastered sight alignment and trigger control. A great tool are airsoft guns with a blow back feature, they simulate .22LR recoil and shoot plastic bbs. They are popular here with IPSC shooters and law enforcement to practice realistically.

I like it.

I went to the makers site and apparently it does have an "always on" feature.

Jewishmarksman, while I can appreciate your points, and having checked out the device you recommend, agree with you regarding it's value, the SureStrike is about one tenth the cost.
At this point in time, that's a real consideration.
