Training with SIRT (Shot Indicating Resetting Trigger) training pistols

We use SIRT training pistols for all handgun training platforms. We believe we can instruct the beginner to advance with this platform. We can quietly and without any distraction, instruct basic handgun users grip, sight alignment, trigger control and trigger press, and handgun draw and reload. Intermediate to advanced handgun users we can train defensive shooting fundamentals, trigger press, advanced handgun drawing and handling. We believe the SIRT training pistol saves ammo, allows for a better training session, and more safe training environment. We also use L.A.S.R X training software where we can make anything a target and record and playback your training exercise to address opportunities for improvement.
