Mantis Pistol Training Device

    Considering handgun is my single worst firearm in 3-gun, I am keenly interested in the Mantis, a new pistol training device. Essentially, its a Bluetooth enabled package of accelerometers that interprets your shooting and tracks the firearm and deviation from the aiming position. It can detect trigger pull movement and suggest improvements based on the data.


    The Mantis attaches directly to any handgun picatinny rail (sadly, no adapters for non-railed firearms to start). Its about the size of an oblong quarter or ping-pong ball and even includes a sub-rail if you want to train with other attachments, lights, lasers, etc.

    We’ll request one for testing (I know I want one).

    Pre-Orders are available for $169 and those ordering shortly will receive another $20 off using code “MANTIS20”. No mention of an anticipated shipping date.


    Package includes:

    Mantis Training Bundle includes:

    • one Picatinny-rail compatible attachment

    • mini-USB charging cable
    • 1-year limited warranty
