    shootoff software trainer

    anyone used this? it's free on line, just google shootoff. it's suppose to be similar to the LASR system. it appears to be an awesome way to add your laptop to your laser trainer and train at home.

    The software looks very interesting. I would say it's worth a try being that it is free. The moving targets look challenging.

    The LASR program also looks very good. I believe all updates are free after buying the software. I will be picking up a SIRT pistol tomorrow. I think I will be trying out the shootoff software sometime this week.

    It's got potential but I think its still a long way from L.A.S.R. It's a Java app, I'm not sure if my issues were with Java or the app itself. I wasn't able to resize the targets and it kept thinking there were shots being fired while I was still trying to set it up. YMMV.

    Fulngyu, if you decide to get L.A.S.R. and need a discount code, mine is "mtstream" if you do a search, I've posted about it and how it's helped my shooting a number of times.

    There are a number of devices designed for dry fire practice that utilize lasers. Some work in your gun like the LaserLyte trainer barrel (LaserLyte ? Trainer Barrel Laser GLOCK® 19/23) or cartridge (LaserLyte ? Trainer Pistol Cartridge). Next Level Training produces the SIRT pistol which is a replica Glock (https://nextleveltraining.com/) that uses lasers.

    The products in this thread are called shot trackers - it's computer software that uses the computer's camera to track the laser hits. They allow you to setup any type of target you want, they will time your shots and record them to provide feedback. With the software, I'm able to see if there was movement in the gun after breaking the shot which indicates problems with form (like trigger control). I found the combination of a SIRT Pistol with L.A.S.R. software to be very effective at improving my shooting. Enough to justify the money I invested AND because I was able to focus on improving at home it paid for itself in ammo/range fees savings.

    One of the problems with dry fire practice with a Glock is that you have to cycle the slide after every trigger pull. There are some repeating trigger options on the market that will still activate a laser cartridge but I found they didn't have a very realistic feel. My personal preference for dry fire training is the SIRT because the trigger feels closer to the real thing than any other option I've tried. I also like that the size/weight of the pistol is correct - but this only matters if you're shooting a G17 or similar. I also have the option of visible lasers or infrared. I'm currently using infrared but probably wouldn't recommend the investment, the camera is very sensitive to lighting conditions and it's harder to see the targets when trying to configure the setup.

    For those who haven't focused on dry fire training, it's hard to imagine just how much improvement it can make on your shooting.
