Today, I’ve got a video for you that’s a first of it’s kind.  I get asked all the time about various laser training platforms, including the SIRT Dry Fire Pistol, the M&P SIRT, the SIRT Pocket Pistol, Laser-Ammo’s laser barrel insert for airsoft guns, and the CoolFire Trainer.

It took me awhile (monthS) to get enough time working with all of them to be able to do a review that would have any value.

There seems to be a new trend of doing “unboxing” videos where people review products as they’re opening the package for the first time.  I guess there’s some value in this, but what I really want to know is how gear works when you actually use it.

I say this in the video, but it’s worth repeating.  I know and like people from each company.  Some of them are good friends.  That being said, I have spent thousands of dollars buying laser training gear because I like it and use it.  And my review reflects those experiences more than my relationships with people at the companies.

None of the products are perfect, but no training is perfect.  That being said, there is TREMENDOUS value in going through 21 Day Alpha Shooter, 30-10 Pistol, or Concealed Carry Master’s Course with any of the 5 of these laser training tools.

The video is a little long, so if you’re looking for information on a specific model, here’s where to go:

SIRT Glockform laser trainer: at the start (Discount training package at

SIRT M&Pform laser trainer: 4:00

SIRT Pocket Pistol: 4:40 (Discount training package at

Laser-Ammo laser barrel for airsoft: 7:15 (Use discount code ox18 at checkout at

CoolFire: 10:00 (Use discount code ox18 at checkout at

I cover benefits and limitations of each, special considerations for training on the road, training late at night or early in the morning, training in different temperatures, training around pets, training with neighbors, using a laser trainer that’s slightly different than your real steel, and the best options for 1911 owners.

As always, if you’re looking for the best at-home or in-department training to use with each and every one of these laser trainers, you really need to go through the 21 Day Alpha Shooter program.

If you’ve got more questions that I didn’t answer, let me know by commenting below.

Know anyone who could use this info?  Please share it with them.
