as a Snap Cap that will emit a Lazar beam out of the barrel when the trigger is pulled ?
I was dry firing my M&P last night and that thought crossed my mind. If not, someone needs to invent one. I think it would be an asset to most any shooter.
Whatta you guys think ?
I think I remember an article a few years back in an American Rifleman regarding a training setup using something similar to that, and the target that comes with it registers where the "hits" would be.
I've never seen one, but that dosen't mean one don't exsist. Why would you want it to do that? To simulate where the hit would be? Just curious.
Thats exactly right cruzthepug. If knowing the exact POI during dry fire practice makes you a better shooter, it can't be a bad thing. They say "Practice makes perfect",,, I say, "Perfect practice makes perfect"
"Practice does not make perfect because perfection is an ideal and cannot exist in the real world. Practice makes you better. The more you practice the better you become. Seeking perfection is only setting yourself up for failure as you can never achieve an ideal. You can, however, strive for excellence. Excellence is an attainable goal."
I haven't gotten one yet but I'm very interested in it. It's a bit pricey but it is said to work very well used in conjunction with a holster. I also like that the light goes into the muzzle end because unlike a snap cap, it won't have to be re-loaded into the chamber each time the slide is racked to reset the trigger on my Glock.
It also does NOT offer ANY protection for firing pins like Snap Caps do. Just wanted to point that out. The evidence is inconclusive on striker types but for those with firinf pins, I would recommend ALSO using a snap cap with this product.
