    Has anyone tried laserlyte 9mm cartridge in their 995 carbine along with the target? How good does it work?

    Looks like an expensive toy with little practical application.

    Trigger time with results of whether you hit or miss your aim point isn't practical?

    The idea is very old. It's only doing it with lasers as the marker that is new.

    It's not trigger time, it's an expensive way to do dry fire exercises. Dry fire is a useful training tool for beginners especially to identify smooth trigger pull, and the all so common anticipation of recoil, although mixing snaps with live rounds does an amazing job. But in the end, excluding competition calibers (.22 short) only trigger time is trigger time. For 0 recoil rounds like the short, teams have won competitions doing nothing but dry fire.

    Dry fire for free, or spend a couple bucks on snap caps, and you have the same training as the $300 'bullseye' combo.

    Looking at their "shoot don't shoot" target, wow, bad idea. That's not training "situational awareness", that's training to shoot anything of a specific color. You don't even have to do much google searching to find dead people because of that style training. It's been over a decade since I trained shooters, it's been close to 20 since I took that training, and even then that style of training was widely known for getting innocent people killed.

    So for a toy, yep go nuts. But it's a lot of money for what's essentially a $20 toy from walmart.

    In retrospect, buy an old nintendo with duck hunt. You'll have more fun for doing pretty much the same thing :laugh:
