Laser Target Practice

What’s the goal of your dry fire training? Whether it’s as basic as working on trigger control, all the way up to drawing and firing multiple, accurate shots, Mantis Tech has a solution to help you get more out of each session. Train with your own equipment, save on ammunition costs, and benefit from a variety of drills that keep your target practice fresh and dynamic, all from the comfort of home. Let’s take a look at how the Laser Academy system helps you improve through its visual feedback, drills, scoring, as well as the ability to train with -- or compete against -- a partner.

Laser Academy is made up of a laser cartridge, physical targets, and stand for your phone to record your training session through an app that provides guided drills and real-time feedback. The simplicity of the set-up means convenient training anytime on your own indoor practice range. 
  • Insert the laser cartridge into your chamber.
  • Set up your target.
  • Using the tripod cradle, face your phone’s camera towards the target and activate the app.
And just like that, you’re ready to train.

The Laser Academy app comes with the following training modes:
  • Open Training: Basic target shooting with scoring and the ability to store sessions to track your progress.
  • Shot From Guard/Low Ready: Starting from a prompt, this mode times your shot and tracks accuracy.
  • Duel - Single Shot: You versus your training partner. Who’s the fastest draw that can also land a shot on-target?
  • Bullseye 5-shot: Five shots, scored for accuracy and time. Compete against yourself, working for increased scoring as you progress.

If you purchase  the Laser Academy "Portable" or "Standard" kit though, you immediately have access to not only the following modes, but all new modes to be released in future updates. 

Extra modes already available in the app store include:
  • Open Shooting - Multi-Targets: Basic target shooting with multiple target scoring and the ability to store sessions to track your progress.
  • Bullseye 10-Shot: Achieve the highest score of ten shots, at any pace. Shots are placed, scored, and timed. 
  • Compressed Surprise Break: Firing from a prompt, the goal is improved reaction speed and shot accuracy.
  • Duel - 5 Shot: From a prompt both shooters draw and fire, with first on-target earning a point. A fun way to improve speed and accuracy.
  • Duel - High Score: Fastest shot on target earns the score. Quickness and accuracy are the name of the game.
  • Holster Draw - Par Timed: Shot from holster against a par time. From the *beep* you must draw and fire before the par whistle. Each shot is placed, scored, and timed. 
  • Holster Draw: Draw and shoot immediately after the prompt. Each shot is placed, scored, and timed, so you can race yourself. 
  • Shot From Guard/Low Ready - Multi-Rep: Starting from the guard/low ready position quickly acquire and fire upon the target from the *beep*. Each shot is placed, scored, and timed. 

    The suite of Laser Academy drills allow you to push your own boundaries in regards to speed with the safety that dry fire training provides.  If you’re ready for a more engaging and productive dry fire training experience, then check out Laser Academy and get more enjoyment on the path to becoming a better shooter.
