First let me say that I have NO connection with DryFire USA. The basic package of DryFire had no value to me, but with the addition of Trapshooting USA, it has become a welcome addition to me and two other shooters. With winter upon us, we find shooting trap in an area that is keep at about 65 degrees, a change ofr the better. I have shot 5000 rounds as of this date. If I had shot that amount at the Orangeville Sportsmrn Club it would have cost me $1700.00. The total cost to me of the system was $1950.00, so I am a little short, but will make it up, by shooting at least another 50 rounds. What has the system done for me? Well it has allowed me to setup my BT-99, with PFS to shoot at 70-30. When I first started, I was shooting a 89 average. In DryFire USA Trap, I have upped that to a 94.5 average, with a lot of 25's and 24's, and a few 84's when I first started... By the way I keep my scores, using "Trasooters Asistant". Under the club name "The Geezers Shooting Club". I have a 92 aveage for 5 rounds of singles in 2009. I hope to see at the Pennsylvania State shoot, with a new found skill at trapshooting.

Bud, I take it you are pleased with the system.. I'm seriously considering purchasing one for my kids and I. I'm not sure I understand what the "Trapshooting USA" component is...

smp005,

The real name of the program is "DryFire Squading", I call it Trapshooting USA, because it lets you squad 5 shooters in singles and handicap. If you want to shoot doubles, you should get the double headed unit. To see what dry fire is, type into your search engine "dryfire usa" If you do not type in the usa, you will be taken to the UK site and then have to click on the USA flag. There is no video of the squading software. If you go to my site http://www.patrapshooting.com, you will see what my setup is like. I live in Berwick,PA, if you live around there then send me an e-mail. It is a great training tool!

The system works great if it's used in conjunction with live shooting. Maybe 60/40 with 60% being the system. It will improve your timing and eyes to target reconition. Likewise, with your speed. However, the recoil will screw you up if you don't do some real shooting while using the system. At least that is what I discovred in the last year.

How big is the screen? How far behind the screen do you stand? Do you change positions during the shooting?

You shoot aganist a wall. I throw aganist a TJ background. I stand about 8 ft away, but it can be any distance you program in. you move across the room to shoot from different stations (angles), distance is program adjustable You see your shot on a computer screen, giving the pattern on the target, time of shot (distance of the hit or miss), and where your center of pattern (inches)is away compared to the center of the target. Everything is adjustable. You can make the training as easy or so hard you can't hit anything.

I do not have a screen. It is a painting of a trap field, with a traphouse attached to the painting. The painting is 10 foot wide by 5 foot. The shooting line is 10 feet from the painting a streight line with five positions.You change positions every five shots, just as at your clu The shooting positions are 26 inchs apart. I have a 12X12 room. You can go all the way back to 14X14 with the positions 30 inchs apart. My gun is set to shoot 70-30, and my hold is one inch above the trap house. To insure your hold is the same as at a real trap field. Take a ruler to the field, find your gun hold on the back ground, the measure with a ruler My hold at the gun club is one inch.

I bought the Dryfire system last year, including the background and trap house. It really is very nice, and I use it for a warm up as well as a review. It simulates wind very nicely, and the targets have a significant level of reality when simulating windy conditions.

It's just a moving lazer point. However, the display on the computer screen show's a target overlayed by the shot pattern.
