Let’s talk a bit about training efficiency. Not everybody’s set up to be as efficient as possible on the range. What’s your goal when you get to the range? What I find is when you go to the range to shoot, some training may occur, but most of the time it’s for fun. A prime example of this would be when when that magazine runs dry on a drill. Instead of quickly reloading and getting back into it, people immediately stop and start talking to their buddies. Pay attention next time you’re at the range. How many people reload their firearm as soon as it goes dry? The answer is not very many. Efficiency is very, very important. The habits you build at the range will show up in the way you perform. Training efficiently starts at your home. Before you go to the range, sit down on the couch, grab a pen and say, what am I going to do out there? Set a goal. For example, I’m going to shoot 50 rounds of ammunition and I want to achieve being able to better track my sights during recoil. I’ve already started my training regimen with my SIRT so my trigger mechanics are improving and my draws are quicker. I can integrate multiple things into my training scenario with 50 rounds so I may be drawing and shooting once then following it up with a draw and shooting four times. With training like this, I get draw stroke practice, I get an iteration of picking up my sight, and then every time I pull the trigger I’m watching the sight bounce. By focusing on the efficiency of my training, I am able to work on many different aspects. By planning your training, you won’t spend as much money on ammo and your training will improve your mechanics quicker. Then as soon as you’re done with live fire, you can go back home, and get some reps in with the SIRT to see how the skills have transferred. In addition, the SIRT doesn’t limit you like a range will. You can work on movement, compromised shooting positions, and anything else your imagination can come up with.

how far will the light reach in the sirt training pistol
The laser itself will go farther than the eye can see without assistance. Unless you are shooting extreme distances you should have no problem seeing the laser. Do note that if you are training in direct sunlight you will want to get a SIRT with a green laser as it is a lot brighter and is more visible in direct sunlight.
Indoors, I have it set up in my range at my house which is only 10 yards. It works very well. Outdoors it is practical to see the dot out to 15 yards on an IDPA cardboard target.
Does the SIRT trigger react the same way a Glock or M&P trigger does? Can I run it to the ‘wall’ then press it past that point to break the shot? Or; does it simply run all the way back to where the shot breaks?
It runs the same way. You prep the trigger to the break point and then squeeze to break the shot.
I just received my SIRT Pro 107 and I love it. I am a newbie to the SIRT and I have much to learn. The one thing I really enjoy is that the training videos really engage me…they are very informative to the extent that I am acting out what I see and am learning. A BIG Thanks to NLT team.
I have been using my SIRT Pistol about five years now I go to the Range one every six months. I can say that the SIRT Pistol is the way to go when it comes to training.
Just interested in finding out about this product, very interested in purchasing it.
