ITarget

I was getting bummed with all the rain and snow and just generally bad weather. I ordered Itarget to practice at the house. It works pretty well with a few cravats. It is really sensitive to stray light being the main one. While not the same it does allow me to practice trigger pull which is my biggest problem. Getting old and had a few mild strokes both of which have caused some arm weakness.
BUT I have a very beautiful and tolerant wife who indulges me and doesn't get weirded out with me shooting beams of light down the hallway.
There may be better products on the market but for now this works. BTW does anyone use something else that works better, inquiring minds want to know.

Looks nice. Seems about the same only different. I drilled a little hole so I could mount the target/iphone holder to a camera tripod for easy setup. I figure once I play with it a bit I will get the sensitivity thing figured out better. Putting it at the end of hallway though works well and gives me the most distance.

I've been using the laserlyte system for about 5 years now. I have the .380, 9mm and .45 training bullets, the laser target and plinking cans. I've used it to introduce new shooters to guns and entertain the grandchildren for hours.

The furthest I can get is 44ft. But that is a pretty good range for me. I am wondering how it will translate to actual range results.
I did notice a couple things. Practicing trigger pull and grip is easier but not near as much fun without the bang. Nor having to drive out to the range and clean afterwards is nice but you don't get the conversations and laughs.
Guess the old saying holds true, "everything in life is a trade off."

July 2017, I had 3 cervical discs replaced, I wore a neck brace for 6 weeks and wasn't allowed to shoot a gun for 6 months. I went bananas, I shot my Ultra Tactical .45 with a laserlyte bullet at 20' everyday. After 6 months with the doc's approval my son took me to the range and I used my Ultra Tactical with my .22 conversion kit on it. My son and I were astonished at how well I was shooting, I was shooting like I did 25 years earlier when I was competing regularly. Yes, dry fire or laser firing will translate to better range performance if you take the time to practice.

I have used ITarget for some time now and like it. I also use shootoffapp. With shootoffapp I can use two cameras so I am not shooting the same direction all of the time. (ShootOFF - Free Dry Fire Laser Firearm Training Software) When I need feedback I use the Mantisx as well. The range is much more costlier than ITarget though.

Dryfire is absolutely one of the best ways to improve a person's skills. And it's cheap as well.
