They do have senors on vest that they wear to tell them were the hits are at and they do play of that as if it isn't a kill shot then they keep going.wow,, that is pretty amazing simulation training. Wonder how the bad guys know when they are hit. Maybe some kind of sensors that they wear? Maybe its a per-scripted scenario?
They had discussed a vest for the trainee for feedback on being shot but with the amount of stress the first class dumps on you they have not went that route for safety reasons. For lack of better words the first class will scare the **** out of you. If you do decide to take a second or third class the shock factor does drop tremendously and this is my design as the brain learns and prepares you for the situation.It looks like a great way to induce stress inoculation. Based on the little it shows I like the fact that you get to shoot live ammo. It certainly looks better than a general simulator such as Gander Mountains 300 degrees scenario simulator. With that said, unless I'm missing something troygate doesn't have the introduction and immediate feedback of pain in you get shot in a scenario. Overall, it looks like would another excellent form of training to work on becoming a thinker first and a fighter second. If there was one up in the Midwest area and the price was reasonable ($200 per day of class) I'd consider traveling to try it.
Yep. with sims you are using a real gun, with real people shooting at you, with paint rather than bullets. It is one of the best forms of training I can think of....It is as close to real as you can get as your are using real guns, real bullets with real people. The actors (who is shooting at you) can change the scenario in a blink of and eye, it really keeps you on your toes.
