    Dry fire pistol training systems.

    Does anyone use them? Recommendations for one? I'm just looking into alternatives for practice. Thanks again

    I was giving serious thought to the Mantis X system but its pricey. I unfortunately haven’t tried one yet. YT has a lot of videos on it. It can be connected to your iPhone to see and analyze your draw speed, splits and muzzle movement when firing. The base system isn’t that pricey at approximately $150 but the add-ons i want push it to over $200

      This one should be available soon and at $99 bucks may be worth a shot. I have an old smart phone wonder if it would work with that instead on my current phone.

        itarget pro system seems to be pretty popular. What I do not like about the mantis x system is eliminates your ability to dry fire draws from the holster

        Oh man is that tempting. This is almost EXACTLY what I've been wanting for decades, but never could afford a system that does it all. I've seen lots of laser target systems that tell you where the shot landed, but nothing affordable that tells you what the muzzle was doing before and after the time of the trigger pull. Heck, it looks like you could strap one of these to a Nerf dart gun and improve your shooting skills. I'm really thinking about putting it on an air pistol, since I doubt it has the sensitivity to be useful with my target rifles.

        See, and that, like every other typical laser system out there has no interest for me. I really don't care about my "on-target performance". Muzzle trace is a direct method of training muscle memory and good form. Target score is indirect, which makes it infinitely less useful for training purposes.

          You would still need a discernible trigger pull on whatever you decide to mount it to

        I dry fire from a holster. I use a magazine adaptor. 2BC63482-E380-4447-A9E3-A60035321812.jpeg

        I too have the MantisX Elite and have been using it on my Walther Q4 SF for several almost six months. If anyone would like to meet for a road test, please let me know and I will make mine available for fellow members.

        I find this system very useful and have improved my pistol skill set considerably since my purchase.

          I was thinking about getting an airsoft 1911. I figure even shooting cans in the backyard or basement be an improvement and also fun. Also for practicing Quick Draw.

            I have something similar. I think it is called Lazer Lyte? At any rate it's a PITA because you have to rack the slide every shot. The SIRT laser guns, are much better in that respect.

              Good collaboration on systems here, helping the Op make a better decision. That Mantis 10x is the direction I’m heading in

                I use a pink rhino and aim at random stuff around my house lol. Whole point of dry fire is to keep the laser consistent. The recoil and normal bullet paths aren't there.

                Dont need a digital target telling me my groups are good. If I land 50 laser shots on my door knob from 15 yards away, i know the groups are good.

                  Recoil is for the most part immaterial, because it only sets in after the bullet has left the muzzle. That's the whole point of this. It's the little perturbations during trigger pull that make the biggest difference in your accuracy that you can fix via training.

                I guess I'm the exception on this. I just use SnapCaps. Going through the loading, unloading to keep up the muscle memory. Trigger squeeze and using whatever sights I've got is the rest of it.

                  I have MantisX x which is cool, and cool fire as well. Cool fire tracks your shots as a digital target and has a co2 filled barrel that simulates recoil

                  on my M&r pro it’s like 9mm light.
