    Laser Dry-Fire Training

    Do any of you have experience (good or bad) with laser dry-fire training systems? I'd like to purchase one, but need some guidance first. I'll be shooting .380 and 9mm.

    I think your money would be better spent on ammo. Without live rounds your not getting the experience of handling recoil and the noise of the round going off. You can do effective dry firing practice without that fancy equipment. With an unloaded pistol pointed in a safe direction you can dry fire watching that your sites stay perfectly still. If they snap to one side or the other when the trigger breaks that's probably where your round will end up and you need better trigger control.

    I have the Laserlyte with the 9mm cartridge. I find it helpful. Better than dry firing and determining if you moved your sight picture. With the Laserlyte, the cartridge inserted, I fire a number of shots at the target which lights up when hit. When done I fire the laser at the "show" button which will "light up" my shot grouping. A bit expensive but a lot more fun than just dry firing. Plus I can do this everyday if I want. Can't always get to the range.

    Thanks, Rustygun and Graywolf. I plan on doing both. I can't get to the range as often as I want, and I'd like to get better than my limited range time allows.

    Graywolf: Has the Laserlyte given you problems? What kind of software are you using? Do you have any suggestions?

    Sounds like a great practice method .
    Gaining experience with trigger pull is vital.
    Might be a good way to distinguish trigger pull ,verses recoil sensitivity, great idea with the laser
