Dryfire practice is an excellent way to work on shooting fundametals. Many top competitive and tactical shooters recommend dryfire practice with your firearm of choice. However, those same shooters also agree that dryfire practice is boring. While you get a lot of trigger time (without firing a lot of rounds of ammunition), you don't get a lot of feedback and it's difficult to see how well you are doing.

L.A.S.R fills the gaps in dryfire practice and gives you a way to track your progress. If you have a computer with a webcam, more than likely, you can use L.A.S.R. to take your training to the next level.

How It Works

To get started, simply point your webcam at a target, start the L.A.S.R. program and start shooting your laser training aid at the target. L.A.S.R will see each shot and record where and when the "hit" occurred.

L.A.S.R. uses advances in the field of computer vision to "see" the laser from your training aid and record the exact location of your shot. This unique system also provides a shot timer for the added benefit of working on timed drills, as well as numerous other features and modes to help you get more from your dryfire training.

Target Compatibility

LASR will work with almost anything as a target, within normal indoor lighting. You can use a lightswitch or picture on the wall, full-size sillouttes, prinouts from the internet, and much more. You may find that in different lighting condiitons, some targets work better than others.


Training Aid Compatibility

The only training aid requirement is that it has a momentary laser. Most of the time, in devices like this, the laser is activated when you pull the trigger, mechanically. "Constant On" laser devices, such as bore-sighters and laser sights, are not compatible or practical.

  • With the LASR Infrared Camera, you can even use LASR with infrared training aids, such as those offered in the Infrared Systems section of this website.
  • When you purchase ANY of the hardware in our online store with a LASR software license, you get an automatic instant discount!!
