I recently got LASR X and started doing a little virtual training. Ranges are closed in my area. In the screen shots I was using a SIRT pistol. I can also use laser ammo in my real guns, but you have to rack the slide between shots. I like it because I can work on drawing from holster, my range I frequent doesn't allow this. It is pretty fun, but should be used in addition to live fire at the range. The three screen shots are from a mini course I set up at my house. Targets were in three different rooms. My total time was with time penalties added. You can see the raw time on line 8 in the screen shots. At least I have something to do while the ranges are closed because of the pandemic.

I'm in the same boat range wise, but my setup is lower tech. I'm using a G-Sight laser cartridge, the garage door hinges, and a free dry fire timer app.

Better than nothing, and allows me to work on target transitions and sight focus.

I've been using my Laserlyte setup quite a bit. I can take it out on the porch or just leave it on the bookshelf and sit at my desk. There's no real substitute for shooting the real stuff, but it scratches the itch a little bit and keeps me in practice a little bit.

[Still can't get the photos to show up in the post. I tried following the directions but it doesn't work for me. Any suggestions appreciated.]

Here is a quick sample video of my setup. I was using the SIRT pistol here and doing the El Presidente drill. Not my best effort, I jumped the start signal and my hits could have been better. You get the general idea though.

LASR-X is a good system, especially when you're stuck at home and ranges are closed. You can use post it notes as targets to hone your accuracy. It allows you to safely practice drawing, sight picture, target acquisition, trigger control, and accuracy.
