Realistic handgun training is now available for less than the cost of a beat up used-Glock. The new LT-PRO universal laser module ($120.95) from LaserLyte inserts into the muzzle of any unloaded handgun (.35 to .45 caliber), and when the trigger is pulled its sound-activated switch pulses the laser, which projects a momentary red laser dot on whatever the pistol is aimed at. The LT-PRO is powered by three LR626 batteries (included), and comes with everything you need—except a gun—to start snapping away. We tested it with a Glock 30S .45 ACP autopistol and a Smith & Wesson Model 586 .357 Magnum revolver, and it worked like a charm in both guns every time the trigger was pulled.
If you’d rather not dry fire your handgun—or if you want to use the LT-PRO in a location where the presence of a real gun might be viewed as politically incorrect—LaserLyte’s Trigger Tyme training pistol ($54.95) is what you need. Made from “training blue” polymer, the Trigger Tyme pistol approximates the dimensions of a Glock 19 and weighs 13.5 oz. with the LT-PRO installed. It needs no batteries of its own, and is weighted and balanced to give the realistic “feel” of most semi-auto pistols. It is fitted with black plastic sights and a DAO-like trigger with a 3/4-inch stroke length and an average pull weight of 3 lbs. 14 oz. The trigger has its own “clicker” that pulses the laser when the trigger is pulled.
If you want something interesting to “shoot” at, LaserLyte also offers Reaction Tyme electronic training targets ($175.95 per pair). Powered by three AAA batteries (included), and featuring a 2.5-inch diameter outer ring, they work in two modes: reaction and training. The reaction mode features random LED signals in intervals of three to seven seconds. When the built-in LED lights up it’s time to fire, and when the target is hit it celebrates with two beeps and a flash of the LED. The training mode allows the user to practice trigger control and accuracy with this always-on and ready-to-be-shot mode. When the target is hit it sounds two beeps and the LED flashes.
