    I purchased a unit at the Grand this year. I just received it last Friday. Computer installation and set up was easy. I have only used it a couple of times since I got it. I do think that it will preform as advertised. One word of caution is that you must pay attention to detail when setting up shooters. Take the time to pattern your gun and take careful measurements. With the right information the system does throw a realistic target.

    did the search before I asked the question. Most of the post were last year. Doesn' Hurt to measure twice, and cut once, if you catch my drift.

    We have a double head unit that has been in use for a full year now. Works well and scorces have gone up. Kids love it in the winter and as a group. If you do the math it does not take long to make up for shells and fees. Still you have to use it and most kids what to hear a big bang.

    We have the double head unit and squad pack with the large picture. Wife uses it all the time. She is hell bent on beating me. She is getting closer all the time. I will have to start using it myself. It is an extremely effective training tool. The support from Bob when needed is second to none. Now if we could just add recoil. Jake

    We will be going into the third year for use of the unit. As mentioned above, take the time to follow all the instructions in setting the unit up and setting a shooter up in the program. Very good tool to get first time shooters headed in the right direction. Works well as a refresher too!!

    Lot of updates on the web page for the unit as well.

    Received our two headed unit at Silver Dollar. The wife started doubles and started to beat me so, I disconnected the unit. It's great.

    releasebob: These systems have been around for many years. I've had both system 2 and system 3 the newest type. And I have commented on them and their use many times on this site. But, you know better, right BOZO?
