    I like the idea of a system that shows tracking, shot, and follow-through line, that’s pretty slick.

    But coupling this with a real firearm that doesn’t have slide movment seems to be of limited use. Couple this with an airsoft gun that is gas powered to rack the slide at a realistic impulse and I could see this being more useful.

    Come on now. This is an enhancement to dry firing.
    You could buy a FATS machine if you want to include recoil.

    I used a similar system for remedial training with shooters with trigger control issues, the improvements were dramatic. When they were actually able to see how the muzzle moved when they jerked the trigger it was literally a light going on.

    NOT having recoil or slide movement helped, because they finally realized that their problems were essentially concealed during live fire by recoil. But I also used it side-by-side with gas airsoft guns so that they could immediately move to a system that included a reciprocating slide, so the teachable moments got strung together.
