Has anyone tried using laser training systems such as “Itargetpro”. If so how has the results been. I’ve heard that there are issues with the carbine keeping the laser in The on position until the bolt is reset

They don't work well for precisely that reason. The firing pin on HP designs works as the "ejector" as well.

Peace favor your sword,

I have one, but haven't tried it in my 995. My laser cartridge has no rim so it doesn't try to eject the laser. It lights up when the firing pin hits the "primer".
I'll give it a try for you. It should work fine.

I haven't tried it, but you might be able to pull the bolt back just far enough to reset the firing pin without actually making it protrude enough to eject the laser cartridge.

It's what I do with my striker-fired pistols when I dry fire them or reset the striker if I have a shit reload that won't detonate the first time I pull the trigger on it.

I tried it in my 995TS and it worked well. I use the I-target software with my own home made phone rest, and a laser cartridge I bought on ebay. I bought a .380acp laser cartridge and cut a thin piece of 9mm luger brass to allow it to head space for 9mm luger as well.
