    SIRT - which model?

    So I've decided to switch from a resetting trigger with laser cartridge to the SIRT. My current focus is GSSF Indoor League. I need my trigger experience to be more realistic than I can get with the resetting trigger.

    The Performer RR is current on sale with an extra mag for $199. If I'm using this to reduce the number of trips to the range I make, will I eventually regret not buying the metal slide version?

    Thanks,

    For GSSF indoor league I think you'll be fine with the Performer line. Yes the trainer pistol will be physically lighter (and less expensive) than the metal version, but I think paying the premium for the extra weight wouldn't necessarily be worth it.

    For action sports like IDPA/USPSA or even outdoor GSSF, you might want to have the weight be as close as possible to your competition gun. That way the swing weight will be similar.

    Full disclosure, though, I have the Pro version but I bought it before they released the less expensive version.

    This may sound odd but you talked me into the Pro.


    My goal was to only invest once so any reason to wish I had the full weight version down the road was going to be good enough. I also wanted Green/Red lasers over the red/red that was on sale. The price difference between the pro and performer green/red was not as significant.


    For those who may also consider this. My thoughts on green/red.


    1. If I choose to practice outdoors where there's more space to move, my understanding is the green is far more visible during daylight.


    2. My top priority is to fix my left of center POI that appeared when I changed my grip to better control recoil. I've also purchased software that will track the red laser during trigger take up and the green on shot fired. This will show any movement happening during the process. I also understand the software can indicate the direction of any movement the green laser makes after the shot.


    Justification of cost. With my wife now shooting with me, our training costs are much higher. My last purchase of 9mm (2k rounds) was at .21/rnd. We average 400rds/trip = $84 + $35 for range = $119 every time we want to shoot. Since starting GSSF we were going 4x/mo for $476/mo. I would prefer to shoot more rounds per trip and like to go more often if I could but cost and time are too much.


    I paid $375 for the SIRT and $108 for LASR software. If the quality of training is as good as claims -by eliminating 1 trip per month it will pay for itself in 4 months and save an additional $800+ the first year. Hopefully, the skill improvement will actually be the same as if we added sessions, which speeds up the ROI.


    We'll see and we'll see how committed we stay to using it over the long term, as cool as it is, it still doesn't go bang.

    Cool. Can you post a followup and share your thoughts?

    One thing I'm thinking about is that the grip on the SIRT is similar to the Gen3 G17. But since I use the no-extra-backstrap Gen4 G17, there's a little bit of a size difference. Maybe enough to affect my draw...maybe not. Actually thinking about trying to get the grip circumferences to match but I don't know if a gunsmith could do that to the SIRT.

    Good luck with your purchases! Now that you're getting a laser trainer, might want to look into these:

    I made the move purchasing the SIRT Pro with the steel red slide with polymer frame. It's been an excellent training tool which obviously saves on ammunition costs. To help me better train and review my shooting patterns, I also purchased the LaserLyte TLB-1 Laser Trainer Target system. You can review your shot pattern after you shoot in order to better train your trigger break. It comes with the two built in lasers of red and green. The take up trigger laser is red while the shot laser is green. With the LaserLyte system, you need to reverse the laser so that the shot laser is red. Otherwise, the shot will not show up on the LaserLyte screen. the change is easy to do as the manual details how to do this. I highly recommend the SIRT Pro as will help to vastly improve your shooting.
