The LASR app invigorates dry fire training with a techy approach that uses gun owners computers, tablets or phones to track and record shots.
The LASR app uses the built-in camera or external webcam on computers, tablets or smartphones to observe targets and record laser impacts from laser training aids such as the SIRT training pistol. When the software notices an impact, it logs the hit with an audible alert, reports the exact location of the hit and records the exact time of the hit.
The LASR app relies on users’ training device, so it’s up to gun owners to supply their own laser system. For those who don’t currently own a laser training pistol, rifle bolt or shotgun adapter, Shooter Technology Group, the parent company of the LASR app, provides a kit building option on its website. The kit builder allows interested consumers to add laser training devices to the package so they don’t have to source those materials on their own.
