For those of you who are lucky enough to have an area to shoot at home or at an outdoor range, you may be able to use this training with live fire. Others may have to use Laser ammo, a sirt pistol or even airsoft rounds.
Deer hunting. If you spook a nice deer, it a leaping, bounding, running (and they are fast) moving target. Seriously though, I’ve had the opportunity to shoot one of the wheel stuff will the meter plates that fall off, and cause the whole this to rotate. The little self sealing balls that bounce across the ground are nice too.
Armor is inherently heavy and generally expensive. Your hover board is a great idea but you might just think about setting up a low berm/bullet stopper between your shooting positions and the target that can absorb any low shots and keep it protected without any added weight or limitations on movement.
That would seriously limit mobility and speed. Also there’s a problem in that the armor angled up is going to deflect rounds upward where you cannot predict or control where they come down so that presents a safety risk even outdoors and of course on indoor ranges I don’t know of any that would allow it because of potential roof/ceiling damage.
At 2nd Marine Division in North Carolina, troops who have spent their careers shooting at static bull’s-eyes on paper are being forced to adapt to a new kind of target – one that can charge at them, move in unexpected directions, respond when engaged and even shout at them in a foreign language.
“A Marine went anywhere from a 20-30% hit rate on a moving target to 80-90%,” Smith said. “Imagine, if I can do reps and sets like that all the time, how I could increase lethality at the individual level.”
