New from LaserLyte: Training Tyme Kit

LaserLyte Training Tyme Kit (courtesy

I have a LaserLyte training target and I love it. But I don’t sit on the sofa trying to hit the bull with the SRT laser Glock thingie. The trigger is so far removed from a real trigger there’s not much point. I have my daughter place the target somewhere in the crib and practice “clearing the house”: looking for and then shooting the target while heading for concealment. [NB: I know that clearing a house is a fool’s errand. But it’s a skill that’s better to have and not need than need and not have.] The ideal set-up would be the LaserLyte Trigger Tyme Compact Pistol, the LT-PRO universal pistol laser trainer and four Reaction Tyme Targets. This now-for-sale sub-$200 kit [presser after the jump] only includes one target, but you’re free to add more targets at about $130 a pop. Dan now has one (and some LasterLyte plinking cans), I’ve got a target, Kirsten’s on her way. Watch this space . . .

COTTONWOOD, AZ (– LaserLyte, innovators in firearms laser technologies, have combined their most popular laser training tools to create a one-stop system of entry level laser training with everything necessary in one package. The Training Tyme Kit includes the LaserLyte Trigger Tyme Compact Pistol and the LT-PRO universal pistol laser trainer and a Reaction Tyme Target to register hits. The Training Tyme Kit provides a $40.00 savings over the same products sold separately.

The Trigger Tyme Compact Pistol is similar in size to the S&W Shield and the Springfield Armory XD-S single stack 9mm pistols. The 5.5 lb. approximate simulated trigger pull has a take-up and break action just like a real firearm but the LaserLyte Trigger Tyme pistols cannot accept or fire real ammunition.

The LaserLyte LT-PRO works with a sound activated switch that indicates where the bullet impacts with a red laser dot. It extends no more than .25 inches from the muzzle of the Trigger Tyme pistol thus allowing for training from a holster, concealment or close quarters.

The LaserLyte Reaction Tyme Laser Target comes with one (1) target for focused training scenarios.  The interactive system works in two modes; reaction and training. The reaction mode features random LED signals in intervals of three to seven seconds. When a hit is made the target celebrates with two beeps and a LED flash. The training mode allows the user to practice trigger control and accuracy with an always-on and ready-to-be-shot mode. When a hit is made, the target sounds two beeps and the LED flash.

The LaserLyte Training Tyme Kit ( )  is the perfect training kit for classrooms, new shooters and individuals interested in honing their presentation, holstering and trigger skills. MSRP is $199.95.

The LaserLyte Training Tyme Kit gets sport shooters and professionals on the target faster, increasing accuracy and overall hits. For more information, visit

    I thought someone made a laser insert that you could put in your actual gun, for more realistic feel?

    1. avatar Karim says:

      LaserLyte makes that 🙂

    2. avatar Karim says:

      Yes, LaserLyte

      BDub, yes they do make a laser trainer cartridge that inserts into the chamber and activates when the striker/firing pin hits it. It works pretty well but it kind of depends on the gun. For instance, in my SR9c the laser stays on after the striker hits it the laser cartridge and doesn’t deactivate until I reset the striker. It’s a little bit of a pain to have to rack the slide after each trigger press but there is still some value in it. I’ve heard that it works better with hammer fired pistols because the laser just blinks on and off when you pull the trigger. So great for DA/SA and DAO style pistols.

      I tested one for a short time: a period in which, at least in my house, it was not safe to be a light-switch.

      It was used in a Glock19. The laser activation worked as intended. Resetting the trigger takes a half-inch in slide movement so that’s not a big deal in my mind.

      Buy two.

      There are a lot of options. I collect some of the hardware options here:

    What? You guys don’t use live ammo? Nothing a few pictures won’t fix to hide the holes in the wall.

    Eric at the Gun Mart Blog did a good write-up on this a few days ago…

    great review looks like a safer way to get kids interested.

  6. avatar zeddic says:

    I picked up a pair of these and the 9mm insert that goes into my M&P. It’s great for draw practice. I’m waiting for an M&P sirt pistol and then these can be even more fun. The cans are next on my wish list.

  7. avatar B says:

    Airsoft guns are surprisingly good for dry fire trigger training. Trigger/sear design is usually really close to the real guns, you get some blowback, and my airsoft 1911 can do the full function/safety check procedure. If you are curious about a pistol online and can’t find it at a dealer springer airsoft guns are only $30 so you can check ergonomics, controls, and weight.

    Dear Santa…

    I’ve briefly used the SIRT training pistol and find the trigger pretty darn similar to a Glock trigger. Not cheap though.

    I have an open source project that aims to do the target side of this equation better using any ol’ webcam + laptop:

    Woud love feedback.

      I’ll check it out at home. Thanks!

        Yea, no problem! Shoot me an email if you have problems, or check out one of the threads about it on Reddit (see below). I personally run it on Linux (Arch Linux and Ubuntu) and test it in a Window VM, so I know it works well on those systems. Several users on Reddit have run it successfully on Mac OS X and have even contributed patches, so I assume it works well there too.

    My dad bought a laserlyte+target setup a year or two ago (big red target with 2 small circles below for target reset/etc). The laser works well, always goes off. The target is a massive deuce, and is completely worthless as far as I’m concerned. It rarely works, even at point blank range. Tried in a variety of lighting conditions (incandescent, flourescent, outside in the dark) and it still rarely works. Sent the target and laser in to Laserlyte twice and both times got back a target that doesn’t work. I’m pretty good at diagnostics (IT technician), striving for consistency in testing, and could absolutely not figure out something that would work reliably.

    Buyer beware. Webcam based solutions will likely be better in the long run… looking forward to a reasonably priced solution that will work with my projection system and a computer/webcam.
    Avoid like the plague. Seems like other reviewers have the same problem.
