Safe, effective, and innovative, the Shot Indicating Resetting Trigger (SIRT) Training Pistol was developed by shooters for shooters, to complement, not replace, live-fire training. The SIRT Training Pistol brings together a host of patent-pending technologies critical to improving shooting accuracy while addressing issues of cost and liability and this is what we will discuss here in the SIRT pistol review.
By mimicking either the Glock 17/22 or the Smith and Wesson M&P, the SIRT training pistol helps to familiarize you with the feel and responsiveness of these weapons. By dry fire training with the SIRT, you are paving the perfect neural pathway to use a live fire weapon in the future with deadly accuracy without sacrificing speed.
SIRT Pistol Review
- Each SIRT Training Pistol comes with one training pistol, one training magazine, a trigger adjustment tool, and a laser windage and elevation adjustment tool.
- The SIRT Laser Training Pistol doesn’t fire a projectile, and the lasers are harmless, allowing you to train anytime and almost anywhere . (use common sense when training with a tool which looks like a gun)
- Fight the potential boredom perceived in training with a simple, but versatile, training tool that makes training fun.
- The system provides the shooter (or instructor) immediate feedback on performance allowing for real-time adjustments, and it offers several features that, when used consistently, offer a rewarding training experience.
- The SIRT Training Pistols simulate accurate pistol weight and center of gravity which are imperative for training .
- The integrated lasers allow for proper training of draws of various pistolcraft skill sets. The SIRT Training Pistol comes with a weighted magazine.
SIRT Training Pistol Review With Dry Fire
SIRT training pistol review with dry fire is more effective than going to the range is a tall order. For those of you who don’t know, dry fire training is the generic term for practicing weapons manipulation with an unloaded gun. It involves everything you do with that weapon, from basic fundamentals to shooting on the move. Think about all the things you need to practice to become a more effective shooter: shooting positions, grip, sight alignment, movement, tracking moving targets, barricades, trigger control, breathing, front sight focus, natural point of aim…the list goes on and on.
As many of you know, I’m a huge fan of dry fire drilling. I’ve talked at length about the importance of dry fire drilling on training your brain and creating the habits of a highly successful shooter. The SIRT allows you all the same tactile feedback to develop muscle memory while allowing you to train in a low stress meditative situation. It is understood that myelination, or muscle memory, is not built by speed of motion, but by deliberate and consistent motion. When live fire training, there is a natural tendency to try and speed up, which is the opposite of the kind of deliberate, slow movement we want for developing myelination.
When training at the range, the many variables you can experience, even in that controlled environment, can be detrimental to your training. Every micro adjustment made due to the explosion in your hand, the distractions on the range or the recoil of your weapon takes you further from the perfect pathway and makes your job that much harder. By training at home and moving slowly your brain is primed to memorize the motions you use to aim and shoot. Over time, speed naturally follows from a properly trained brain.
As for this SIRT pistol review, when dry fire training with the SIRT training pistol, you have a valuable opportunity to practice trigger discipline, stance, grip, and how to aim down your sights, all while setting yourself up for powerful muscle memories to serve you in your marksmanship.
The weight of the SIRT pistol in your hand and the instant targeting feedback provided by the laser makes this the perfect tool to correct sight picture or sight alignment errors you may be making. By correcting them during dry fire training with your SIRT training pistol and not on the range, you can save yourself time and money that is better spent elsewhere.
I guarantee, when you have the tools available to you to train effectively from home, you will train more. When you train, you train with the incredible human potential of your brain. By building those perfect neural pathways off the range, you find yourself becoming a highly successful shooter without wasting a pile of ammo to get there.
SIRT Pistol Discount
Because I feel passionately about the SIRT training pistol as a dry fire training tool, I have established a SIRT pistol discount program with the manufacturer to offer you 10% off with coupon code Sajnog. I have seen the SIRT pistol work towards real results in my students and I couldn’t be happier with it as a dry fire training tool.
There are two SIRT Training Pistol options currently on the market. The 110 Model which is functionally similar to a Glock 17/22 or the 107 Model which is going to be similar to the Smith & Wesson M&P.
With the 110 Model, you get to choose your slide type, either metal or polymer (with polymer being less expensive), slide color (metal options are purple and red, polymer options are green, pink, purple, or red), and laser color (red or green). A 110 Model with a polymer slide will start at $339 and the same model with a metal slide will start at $439.
The 107 Model has fewer options, only offering a metal slide in red with your choice of red or green laser color. This option is similarly priced to the 110 Model at $439.
As I have said before, the difference between a marksman and a guy with a gun is his focus, training and commitment. Dry fire Training is so much more than what shooting at the range can do for you. A Warrior and a Marksman is someone who uses the dry fire training tools available to them to better themselves and their skills. I highly recommend you add the SIRT dry fire training tool to your dry fire drilling.
