iMarksman Dry Fire Training System
The iMarksman dry fire training system uses a device that, upon trigger pull, emits a laser. A sensor detects the laser’s position and communicates it to a software program that projects target images. Different software packages allow the trainee to project different scenarios or target styles, from stationary silhouettes (like the one I tested in the video above), to mock IDPA courses.
This particular setup runs in the neighborhood of $500. However, iSniper has several variations of iMarksman systems, including a law enforcement training package that goes for about $2500.
The system I tested seemed to have a bit of a lag, but I appreciate the option it affords me to dry fire train while still providing shot placement feedback. What do you think are some of the advantages and disadvantages of this style of simunitions training?
