High Speed Film on the Range

A conventional smartphone in slow motion mode can capture an immense amount of information for analysis right there on the range.


Technology is a pain in the neck; it generally takes us ten steps forward and nine steps back. However, smartphones can be used quite useful taking us one step further to diagnosing our shooting skills. Most smartphones have a slow motion video capture where we are come watch our performance in slow motion without any special software.

  • "The eye in the sky don't lie." Video is a great way to see exactly what you are doing when you shoot.
  • Slow Motion. The latest smartphones capture 240 frames per second so you can watch yourself 8x slower to break down what the gun is really doing in your hands.
  • Free. If you have a smartphone already (or access to one), you don't have to spend a dime to get analysis that would have cost thousands a few years ago.

Safety First!

  • Always remember to train safely. Adapting the live fire training rules will ensure we can maintain a 100% safety record when training with the SIRT.

  • All guns are always loaded.  Treat the SIRT like a live fire gun.  Don't point it at other people unless you are following strict Force on Force Safety Protocol.
  • Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy.  Always have awareness where you are pointing the SIRT.
  • Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target.  This is one of the best safety training you can do with your SIRT.  Be sure the trigger is off the trigger until ready to shoot.
  • Be sure of your target and what is beyond it.  Have a good ballistic backstop when training.  So just in case somehow a live fire gun got in your training space, a discharged bullet will be caught in the target area where you are training.
