This is a discussion on OMG. This is 15 minutes from my house within the Carry & Defensive Scenarios forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; I am going to check this out. Probably buy a franchise. I had this idea years ago. Even posted it. Dang. Shoulda done it. Threat ...
Very interesting. I'd give it a go if I was in the neighborhood.

I shot on a very basic thing similar to this back in '97 or '98, but it was a single projector screen, and it didn't shock you if you got hit. This looks way cool. The only drawback I can think of is that I can't figure out a way to simulate recoil on a revolver.

We use a very similar if not the same system for training. It is pretty neat. The only bad thing is, it becomes more and more like a video game if you spend to much time on it. A for profit "entertainment" venue can do you far more harm than good.

Anyone know the franchise fees and start-up costs?
Forgive my ignorance,...Would you bring your own weapons and they outfit them with fake recoil stuff or?
The old saying... "if you have to ask... you prolly can't afford it."
my guess is with the lasers, and the Co2 cartridges in each weapon, they provide the weapons.Forgive my ignorance,...Would you bring your own weapons and they outfit them with fake recoil stuff or?
And, I would agree. As an adjunct to FoF training, which the original franchisor provides in their packages, it would be useful, but unless providing more scenarios continuosly, it's like any other "video game." Once you know the scenes, you will improve your scores. And, my guess is you are NOT training with your own weapon... with the same sight picture, feel, and nuances to every gun.We use a very similar if not the same system for training. It is pretty neat.

It could be worse!

I did something similar to this at Camp Atturbury, we were there for rifle training and we ran through a simulator with humvees and rifles equipped just like that. It was not very realistic but it gave me a great opportunity to learn about how the sight acquisition works in a rapid fire situation

Each gun costs the price of the gun plus about $2000 for the conversion kit. So it is not just a simple matter of having a huge selection. Magazines are $400 each. Kinda spendy. He also has an AR15 converted but he says that not many civilians ask to use it. Not sure how the cops practice tactical with just one AR.
