While waiting for the new Smokeless Range laser dry fire program to become operational my mind has wandered to some of the possibilities like…
- Can I use my own pistol with a laser insert? Yes you can. If you are already using a laser trainer it will work fine as long as it is a red or infrared laser. Sorry green lasers do not work.
- How much to buy my own laser insert? They range from $80 and go up in price. You may want to hold off if you have a striker-fired pistol like a Glock. You have to rack the slide every time you fire. While this will give your fingers good exercise it could become tedious. If you have a hammer on your semi-automatic you can get some good practice with your trigger pull and sight picture but double taps are not on the agenda. My double action Sig Sauer would work great.
- Are there any good reviews on this technology? Yes, I found a pretty good review dated 2015 that is worth a read. Click on this link to read the review.
Haven’t seen much on revolvers other than the SIRT product line that has a training pistol like the ones we purchased that looks like a snub nose. The revolving cylinder seems like it would be a problem using the cartridge and bore type training lasers.
