    Virtual reality simulations

    I've known about these for some time.. usually the ones I've seen are quite expensive... and not in the mainstream yet...

    Here's a simulator in a Gander Mountain Store.... $25 for a half hour...

    That's pretty cool. I'd love to go through one of those.

    Reminds me of the scene in MIB where the tryouts are shooting cardboard aliens

    We have a very good one at a gunshop in Manassas, VA not too far from me. My wife and I tried it out and found it was not only great fun, but we learned some useful things from it -- the trainer who ran the scenarios for us was very helpful as well as pleasant. I enjoyed it so much I went again, with a friend, who also commented on how much he learned from it. If you can find one, and if prices are reasonable, I recommend trying out a simulator.

    We just had a new range with a simulator open not too far from me in Plant City. I went today and WHAT FUN IT WAS!!!! I can't wait to go back lol! There were a bunch of skills drills available as well as virtual senarios. I had planned on really only doing the skills drills but enjoyed the virtual ones with 'get the bad guy, not the hostage' senarios.

    It was a great learning experience since I've only ever shot at stationary paper targets. I've never worked on anything than straight ahead of me. I learned that I need to get lined up faster, work on various directions, pull the trigger faster, etc. I found I shoot at targets to the left horribly lol. The owner kept looking at my paper targets I'd just shot in the regular range saying 'you shoot better than that' lol yeah I shoot ok in a regular range envirnonment, this was completely different!
    Here's a clip from a skills one where you have to shoot the 2 targets that match the pic on the bottom.

    And this one was one of the action simulations:


    Now I want to go gun shopping for a fun .22 so I can go more often and not break the bank on ammo!!
