This app along with the associated device have changed shooting for me. I always heard people say “oh practice dry fire drills” for new shooters but if you’re doing something wrong in a dry fire drill you’re just solidifying it for your shooting. This app gives you real time feedback, tells you the possible cause for your shooting misfortune is and tells you how to correct it. It is so beneficial to actually see what you’re doing wrong without having to go to the range and see the results on the target. That being said, even at the range you can use this or take what you’ve learned from dry fire feedback and apply it to your shooting at the range. Completely satisfied. Money well spent. If you want to see better results get it and try it.
I have only tried it for dry fire drills so far. But I understand you can also use it for live fire at the range. They include example videos for any training you don’t understand how to do. At the range, I was pretty confident for being right on the mark but this has helped me identify small inconsistencies I may be in the habit of. Ex: slapping the trigger, squeezing my hand too tight, anticipation of the fire, etc. and it’s effect without having to spend 1000 rounds of ammo to perfect it. Completed the Basic Marksmanship Training (earned a literal physical badge) and would love to see more challenges or drills like that to give me training objectives each day.
I’ve been using the app for a little over one year, and during this time the app has steadily improved to make it easier to use and add features. I reported a few bugs and suggested changes to make it easier to use (for example, prepending a short bit of silence to all audio feedback to prevent my Peltor Bluetooth hearing protection from clipping the beginning of the feedback), and all issues and suggestions have been implemented. This is not some minimal effort app just so this app can sell their system. They care about their users and keep adding value.
