    That's a cool little FATS trainer.......I enjoy doing that but our trainer isn't near that nice.

    FATS is a great tool in limited doses. We have one in the basement, I am an instructor on it. I wish people who like to monday morning quarter back or think they are commandos could use the system... it can expose faults in a hurry, but it also can boost confidence. It is a neat item to have.

    Ya, put me in the class, too.

    I guess the next best thing would be to play airsoft games with a bunch of buddies. Are there "practice" scenarios written down some where?

    Sixto,

    Which weapon system(s) is your set up for?

    That is awesome. It would be the ultimate dry-fire training environment for me. I have a beamhit with in-barrel laser and do between 75 - 100 draw/fire/hit target's about 5x/week. It helps me with the bio-mechanics of drawing and firing and gives feedback. But this system is a real simulator and gives simulation on shoot/no shoot. That is some serious training. I want one for my basement.

    Sixto - does your system have that coil connected to the pistol? I am guessing that it somehow uses pneumatics (SP?) to simulate recoil. I could be wrong. Is my guess correct or incorrect? If incorrect, what is it for?

    I am nerdy and have been looking into implementing some primitive form of enhancing the beamhit with video display and feedback (via image analysis of the video displayed on a wall). Also, I have been recently looking into simulating recoil from a handgun round. My initial research has brought me to haptic controllers and motors with eccentric weights. I am going to have to buy my physics instrutor buddy some beers and pick his brain on this. I am pondering the feasibility of making some type of haptic controller that would fit the form of a pistol magazine. I know alot of blue sky thoughts. But with time, they can be done.

    Sixto - what is your definition of limited doses? Thanks.

    Agreed. I have worked as a "Role-Player" for a government academy in the past. I've never done or seen a FATS system myself, but I've heard it used in comparison to some of the sims we've run using Simunitions. I've heard it can be really good but the dynamics involved with the possibilities of RL pain and actually trading loud gunfire is tough to match.

    Everything has its place, though. Personally I think those systems are wonderful.
