    The article in TrapShooting USA was about the LaserFire system, which is pretty much a useless gadget. My 2 cents. The Dryfire is quite sophisticated and works as advertized.

    I have one of the dryfire systems for my sons and I to train on. It's not a toy and will let you know where your shot string went in comparison to the bird. It is a good tool for training young shooters as they can see where they are shooting and get used to swinging through the target. In about a half an hour you can shoot 4 rounds of trap in your basement,garage or spare room. We painted 1 wall in an unused bedroom to match a picture we took at Jaqua's. The only thing missing is the recoil and the awesome smell of burnt powderd.

    I'm taking a hard look at that system as well. Is anyone using it for bunker?

    When I first started shooting in 2004, I could not find a place to practice. I shot games and such, but wanted to shoot ATA, so I bought a Dryfire and practiced in the basement. I still use it in the winter and it is great fun shooting doubles. I feel if nothing else, I am mounting my gun a lot and seem to be ready when the season starts. John 8703697

    I bought the single head version about two years ago and will say it works great! Sadly, I'm not home enough to get to use it so if anyone is interested I'd sell mine for say $765 shipped in the CONUS.

    Thanks!

    First I had the system 2, now I have the system 3, the latest design. As far as I'm concerned the device is the greatest training tool ever devised for trap shooting. You want to shoot 50K or a 100K birds in a year for a little electricity, it's the way to go. You can make it as hard or as easy as you want. You want wind from any direction, a piece of cake. You want low targets or high targets, no problem. You want bunker, skeet, sporting clays, or maybe design your own layout, it's there with a few strokes of the mouse. What else can I say....Spend the money, you won't be sorry, unless you think it's a toy, which is is not.

    I am a Dryfire Dealer in NW Indiana and would be happy to answer any questions or Demonstrate the Dryfire Unit to anyone that is in the area. I live about 25 miles south of downtown Chicago.

    It is a great training device and I have had many happy customers currently using the simulator.

    Is there a setup for release trigger? seems like it could be done with a different type of switch for the trigger.

    You can switch back and forth from release trigger to pull trigger in about a minute.

    If you have mechanical triggers, you can even shoot release/pull at doubles.

    I have the Dry-Fire system, It's great when I use it.

    I was at the 2004 SHOT SHOW their was a Marksman system from sweeden I think,
    Their system was only $40,000 or so but it was great. In talking to the salesman they had never herd of the ATA. Gave them my copy of trap& field.
    Never heard of anything about them.
