The LaserLyte Universal Laser Trainer allows shooters to train at the location that works best for them.
The LaserLyte Universal Laser Trainer allows shooters to train at the location that works best for them. Utilizing a safe, sound-activated laser that appears on the target downrange when the gun's hammer falls (dry fire), the Laser Trainer improves practice time and gives instant results. The unit features a universal fit in almost all handguns and rifles by virtue of the four included adapters from .22 to .50 caliber (minimum barrel length is 3 inches); a bright, 650nm laser; batteries; instructions; a daylight laser target; and a carrying pouch. MSRP is $79.95.
Two modes of operation are offered: sound-activated and constant-on. I've used the constant-on mode for bore sighting a newly installed scope, and I've also been using the sound-activated mode and the laser target in my office for regular dry fire practice for about four months. I've tried it in revolvers ranging in caliber from .22 LR to .357 Magnum and a 9mm semiauto, and it has been a real aid in developing a smooth trigger pull.
About the only negative thing I can say about it is that I went through the batteries too quickly. Actually, I made the mistake of putting it away one afternoon without checking to make sure I had turned off the switch correctly, and by the next day the batteries were dead. Obviously, that was entirely user-error.
