Every so often one encounters a product that is truly game changing. The SIRT Training Pistol is such a product.
It has reduced the amount of time that it takes to teach shooting skills. My students now learn the fundamentals more quickly and with less effort than before I started using this product. Without exception the student response has been positive.
What I as an instructor have found to be most useful is the visual feedback that is provided by an SIRT Pistol. This level of feedback is difficult if not impossible to duplicate with any other product I have used. Go to the SIRT video page to view the many ways this training tool can be used to advance shooting skills.
Of even more importance, the SIRT Training Pistol provides a tool that students can use to steadily improve their skills without having to go to a range. They can now practice basic and advanced shooting fundamentals in a safe and effective manner in the class room and also on the training range. With the SIRT I can teach techniques and skills that were impossible to teach on a firing range. Yet because the SIRT duplicates the look, feel and function of a real Glock 17 these skills readily transfer to an actual pistol.
We previously taught that dry firing was the way to improve skills away from the range. The SIRT Training pistols goes a step beyond dry firing by providing the feedback that is lacking in dry firing. As most of us know repetitions are the key to mastering any skills. However, this requires perfect practice as simply repeating bad fundamentals reinforces those bad practices.
Having two lasers available, one which shows where the pistol is aimed and one which shows where the bullet would strike is a complete package. Since the SIRT pistol duplicates the size, weight, and trigger pull of a real Glock 17, its use is transferable to actual firing. The only difference is a lack of recoil and noise, both of which happen after the trigger is squeezed.
My premier courses involve point shooting. The SIRT pistol is without peer in learning this shooting skill. It works for sighted shooting as well. With the SIRT I can set up shooting scenarios at basic or advanced levels. If my students purchase an SIRT training pistol they can then can duplicate the drills they used in my classes with their own SIRT Training Pistol.
I also teach home invasion and social chaos classes. The biggest problem I face in those classes is providing my students with ways to set up and practice these types of situations. This simply cannot be done on a firing range. It can be done with one or more SIRT pistols where both the husband and wife can actually practice various scenarios like those they would encounter in their home and practice what they would have to do to survive these types of events.
The SIRT pistol is available in three versions: SIRT 110 Pro with green and red lasers - $439, SIRT Student with red and red lasers - $319 , and SIRT Introductory Level with red and red lasers and a plastic slide - $219. http://nextleveltraining.com/product_list
The costs for each reflect the cost to produce each version. For most students the red and red laser with a plastic slide will be the most cost effective solution. This product retails for $219 but my former students will receive special pricing.
Former students should contact me directly for this offer. Details on the introductory level SIRT pistol are given below:
