Laser Strike Systems has developed a portable auto-illuminating training target system that can be set up and used almost anywhere.
How much does the target system cost?
The cost varies from $59.95 to $149.95 depending on the training pack.
Their “Best Buy” package, the Laser Strike Target Pack + Laser, ($89.95 value), includes a laser cartridge (available selections: 9mm, .380, 40, or 45) , 2 – 3 inch diameter Laser Strike targets, 1 – target stand, 2 – magnetic wall mounts, and 4 – skill rings.
If you already have a laser cartridge, they offer a Target Pack that doesn’t include one.
If you would like more than 2 targets, the Laser Strike Trainer Pack 5 ($149.95 value) includes 5 targets, 5 stands, 10 skill rings, and 5 wall mounts.
The Laser Strike auto-illuminating training target system doesn’t require any batteries, allowing you to set it up anywhere. The targets are small enough that you can easily put them in a backpack, or duffle bag, to take with you wherever you go.
The training target system has a magnetic surface. This makes target set-up quick and easy. You can use either the provided target stand or install the provided magnetic wall mounts to any surface of your choice. Once the targets are set up, use your gun of choice and start your dry-fire training.
Please check that your firearm and magazine(s) are free of ammunition before starting your dry-fire training session.
Multiple target locations
Since the Laser Strike targets are small, you can set them up in a variety of locations both indoors and outdoors to meet your dry-fire training needs. Use these targets to practice moving while shooting by setting them up in various locations throughout your home or training space.
Works great in low-light
These targets allow you to train in an environment with minimal lighting because these targets work great in low-light settings. The illuminating flash, from hitting the target with the red laser cartridge, provides a great visual during dry-fire training.
No feedback on missed shots
The Laser Strike training target system is just a target system. Since it doesn’t use any electricity or batteries, it doesn’t provide any feedback on missed shots. This could make it difficult for new firearms owners to make the proper corrections to improve accuracy.
Illumination is hard to see in daylight/bright light
If there is a lot of daylight or bright light around the target it is harder to see the target flash, since the laser reflects inside the target housing. To make the illumination brighter in bright light settings, consider finding a way to reduce the light being shined on the target(s).
Doesn’t work great with green lasers
Some dry-fire tools, like the Mantis BlackbeardX, use a green laser versus a red laser. Since the Laser Strike target system uses red reflectors, the green laser is tough to see inside the target housing.
Note, the laser cartridge included with the Laser Strike target system, when ordered with a laser cartridge, is a red laser.
The Laser Strike auto-illuminating training target system is a very easy-to-use system. The setup is straightforward and effortless. This system is a great option to use during low-light training.
I think the pros of this target system outweigh the cons of this dry-fire training target system. It is definitely worth investing in if you are looking for a portable easy-to-use dry-fire target option.

In wearing your OWB kidex and leather backed holster I have trouble drawing my 38S. I wear the holster on the side of my hip and it seems like roundness of the hip curves the leather backing to snag the revolver against the kidex. Is there a fix?
