Hey folks! Hope everyone is doing well!, anyway I wanted to touch base with you and get some opinions on what you might think about laser training, (such as G Sight). I recently ordered one to try, I am sure at least some of you guys have tried this method. This is due to the fact that I do not get to go to the range nearly as much as I would like to so im hoping this will be a viable option in between live fire training sessions.
G-Sight laser cartridge + Laser Ammo Target -> that’s the best dry fire practice. I’ve been using this for a long time.
Never used WHOLE G-Sight System (with phone and app) - it’s too much preparation. With Laser Target it’s much simpler.
My firearm is Single Action Only and I couldn’t practice multiple shots (without manually racking the slide) so I decided to upgrade my equipment with SIRT 107.
Now I can say my dry fire training cannot be better
This might be something … check this out:
Sweet!, that app seems more interactive than the g sight app…thanks!
I will go for it. Internet price for APP is $108 (coupon code: SAR). Looks I will be able to do everything what is prohibited at my indoor range.
@Dsstrpc, if you have DOA firearm, you do not need anything else with G-Sight laser to use LASR.
mayhaps some time near future THX!
I like the LASRx app - have it, find it pretty darn useful. I have been meaning to get some video and post it… I’ll try to do that this week.
I keep my web browser opened on lasrapp.com but still don’t want to click “buy”. Definitely I need to see it in action first.
I’m using the G-Sight and like it ok. Using mostly in my XDS. Been carrying/using my XDS for some time and never noticed any real deviation from sights, but have noticed that the laser seems to be going right of sights a bit. Anyone experience this? Is there a lil play with the laser cartridge or is my sights off a bit? Appreciate your thoughts. Thanks
I would take it to the range and see where your rounds group before moving the sights, as your Point of impact might be correct for ur sights…considering a laser is straight and true-I did read a little before purchasing, did they send it with a spare set of O”rings?
@ThatSoccerDude, Are you using GEN2? I’m using Cartridge Gen2, shoots straight. However… it’s “made in China”, so who knows…
@Jerzy I’ll make that happen this weekend and post it
It strikes me that one could set oneself a heck of a nice “fun house” with multiple rooms at lots of virtual standard-sized targets representing variable distance (real and illusionary). Heck, and many of the Windows tablets and laptops have built-in high-quality high-resolution optics.
(Oh when will the toys stop?! …Probably about the time I start licensing with most of them as a marketing agent…)
I’ve got a question about dry firing DOA pistol.
I’m using SIRT for multiple shot practice, however it’s not the same as practicing with real firearm.
I’m using G-Sight laser cartridge with my EDC, but it it’s SAO, every time I pull a trigger I have rack the slide for next shot.
How it would be with DOA firearm? Do I need rack the slide to have a firing pin strike the cartridge, or does it every time I pull the trigger without racking slide all the time?
The Double Action Only trigger I have on my SIG P220 will allow you to pull the trigger repeatedly on a snap-cap without cycling the slide. It would work the same with any of my SIGs hosting DA/SA triggers as well. My S&W 4506 (waybackwhen) also worked this way DA/SA. Otherwise my experience is primarily with SA only target pistols.
… and it looks like I need to get set up with 2 phones or a phone and a camera to make capturing how the LASRx works… might take a couple more days.
in the mean time, y’all may want to check out DryFireMag:
I bought a dry fire magazine for my glock .45s and it works great. first shot feels like DA but after that every shot feels like a normal glock trigger pull, no racking needed.
they don’t come in models for everything, but they have a workable variety, and IIRC they have multiple trigger-spring-weights if you need them.
I’m not sure if this will work in this particular setup (laser cartridge)
DryFireMag for M&P Patent #9182189
This magazine will fit all 9mm, 40cal. M&P pistols that use a double stack magazine.
Please note, firing pin activated laser trainers will not work with the DryFireMag.
@Jerzy I haven’t used it with a laser setup, just for straight dryfire. sort of two different things for me at the moment. I have a SIRT-type pistol I’m using for LASRx, one of the less expensive ones.
Yeap. I’m looking for LASR with real firearm with laser cartridge. That would be my perfect setup.
SIRT maybe is great, but it doesn’t give “real” gun feeling (I’ve got a model with metal slide).
So I will go with DAO firearm with laser cartridge and LASR… if you show it to us
