LaserLyte Trainer Target Plinking Cans

At first LaserLyte had laser inserts. And it was good. Dry firing, while a necessary component of one's training regimen, is pretty boring, all things considered. Click, click, click—after a while, something more is needed.

With the company's laser inserts, you could tape a target up on a wall in your house and have instant feedback with your dry fire routine—"Hey, look! The dot is on target." This was a big step forward, and then LaserLyte came out with the Laser Target. Not only did this device allow you to see hits, they remained on the the target so you could have an idea about your trigger control. The Reaction Tyme target added in unpredictability, with two targets and a prompt as to which one to aim at first.

LaserLyte has upped the ante again with its Trainer Target Plinking Cans. The company has brought the fun and challenge of plinking into your living room with a training aid that makes dry firing not only fun, but also adds variables to the equation. The targets can be set at different distances and angles to the shooter, and provide immediate gratification upon activation by falling down with a hit.

Training in your living room for pennies. All the fun of plinking without having to clean up or using precious ammo. Not bad at all for an MSRP of $115.95.
