There are other modes as well, including:
- Competition Mode
- Reaction Timing Mode
- Area Shooting Mode
Read below for a more detailed description of the Rangemaster SRS.
Rangemaster Shooting Range Simulator software allows you to do dry fire training at home with your own firearm and any paper target using a pulsed laser source (SIRT pistol, LaserLyte Cartridge, etc.) The Rangemaster SRS turns your computer into a highly accurate home shooting range. The program will give you instant performance feedback: record the exact position of every shot you make, give you detailed statistics on your group size and much more. You can practice shooting from a holster and have competitions with your friends!
With the high cost of ammunition, it becomes difficult to go shooting often. For the cost of a couple trips to the range, the Rangemaster SRS lets you shoot every night. Putting time into dry fire practice can greatly improve your shooting skills. The Rangemaster SRS does not replace going to the range, but it makes your time spent at the range much more effective. If you're serious about improving your handgun skills, this is the product for you.
The Rangemaster SRS works in conjunction with your webcam and computer and keeps track of your shots taken with a pulse laser source (such as the Laserlyte Laser Trainer Cartridge).
It plays realistic gunshot sounds for audible feedback while you practice.
Repeatable to +/- 1/10th of an inch (measured at a 1.5 ft focal length).
