Why Use LASR?

Dryfire practice is an excellent way to work on shooting fundametals. Many top competitive and tactical shooters recommend dryfire practice with your firearm of choice. However, those same shooters also agree that dryfire practice is boring. While you get a lot of trigger time (without firing a lot of rounds of ammunition), you don't get a lot of feedback and it's difficult to see how well you're doing.

LASR fills the gaps in dryfire practice by giving you a way to track your progress, while making dryfire more fun and engaging. 

How It Works

To get started, simply point your webcam at a target, start the L.A.S.R. program, select your targets, and start shooting your laser training aid at the target. L.A.S.R will see each shot and record where and when the "hit" occurred. There is a plethora of features and modes that you can mix and match to create your own custom courses of fire.

L.A.S.R. uses advances in the field of computer vision to "see" the laser from your training aid and record the exact location of your shot. This unique system also provides a shot timer for the added benefit of working on timed drills, as well as numerous other features and modes to help you get more from your dryfire training.

Training Aide Compatibility
The only training aid requirement is that it has a momentary laser. Most of the time, in devices like this, the laser is activated mechanically when you pull the trigger.

"Constant On" laser devices, such as bore-sighters and laser sights, are not compatible or practical.

Webcam/Camera Compatibility

Just about any webcam available today will work with LASR. It needs to be capable of  320x240 @30FPS, which is incredibly common. Built-in webcams are not recommended, since they are typically pointed at you, not the targets.

LASR will also work with many commerically available wireless IP cameras. If you are interested in this, please click here to learn more.

Target Compatibility

LASR will work with almost anything as a target, within normal indoor lighting. You can use a lightswitch or picture on the wall, full-size sillouttes, prinouts from the internet, and much more. You can even have targets at different distances, angles, spread out over a large area, and in different lighting conditions.

You may find that in different lighting conditons, some targets work better than others.
Infrared and Recoil

LASR will also work with infrared laser training aids using the LASR Advanced Use Camera. Infrared laser training aids do not have a visble laser report on the targets, which forces the shooter to trust their sight picture and trigger control. Click here for more info.

Recoil laser training aides have some obvious advantages, and will work great with LASR using the LASR Advanced Use Camera. Click here for more info.

 Use ANY Hardware

LASR works with ANY laser training aid and you can use almost anything as targets, from a lightswitch on the wall to a full-size silhouette. Any modern computer can run LASR, using any off-the-shelf webcam.

There is a wide selection of hardware in our Online Shop, complete with discounted prices when purchased with a LASR software license.
 Easy to Use

LASR is designed and built for the at-home user, and is only as complex as you want it to be. It is extremely easy to use.

The software comes with multiple types of built-in instructions to help you get up and running, discover features and options, and get the most from your software. There are links in the software for the LASR Online Tutorial, the LASR User Forums, and for contacting us for assistance.
 Integrated Shot Timer

Not only can you see where your shots landed, but LASR's built-in shot timer will tell you when your shots hit the target so you can time your draw, follow-up shots, and reaction times.

Modeled after a standard comstock timer, the shot timer in LASR has the following modes: Basic (not timed), Immediate Start, Random Start, Random Start with Par, Call Targets, and Repetitive Mode.
  LASR Community

The LASR Software includes a free online service with a variety of pre-made courses-of-fire that include everything from distance-learning style courses to law enforcement qualifications, online competitions, crossfit-style shooting and fitness mash-ups, daily practice routines, and much more!

The best part of the LASR Community is that all of the exercises are made by other shooters, and you can create and upload your own content to share with others.
 Multiple Targets

Not only can you use almost anything as a target, LASR allows you to track shots on up to 20 targets and allows you to track shots on up to 20 backdrop/no-shoot/miss-zone targets. You can draw and edit these target zones to line up however you want with the camera image.
  Save and Reveiw Results

As you use LASR, you can save your results so you can review them later. Additionally, you can graph your progress per shooter and by drill. This allows you to visualize your progress and gives you key peformance indicators that you don't get otherwise.
 Adjustable Visual and Audible Indicators

The diameter and color of the hit indicators on top of the camera picture, the sound the targets make when hit, start signals, and much more are configurable and can be changed on-the-fly.
 Special Purpose Targets

When you work on a drill, you don't always have to be near your computer. Special purpose targets allow you to control LASR from across the room with your laser training device.
 Diagnostic Mode

If you are trying to diagnose a trigger control problem, or you are trying to help a new shooter visualize what a good trigger pull looks like, you can enable Diagnostic Mode. You will see a line drawn from your original shot in the direction your muzzle was moving when the shot broke.
 Race Mode (Multi-shooter)

Part of what makes shooting fun is learning with other people. Race Mode allows more than one shooter (up to 20) to use LASR at one time. You can run man-on-man drills against each other and then use the shot timer to see who "won", or have built-in Win Conditions determine that for you.
 Reload Mode

Reload Mode allows you to set the number of rounds in your "virtual magazine" and when you've shot that many times, you will be prompted to reload. You can also make LASR ignore shots for a certain amount of time so you can't "cheat" your reloads.
 Target Down Mode

Target Down Mode allows you to customize a number of hits required to "down" a target, or you can let the software choose a random number of hits. This can be extremely useful for getting shooters out of a two-round cadence mindset, or enforcing a certain number of rounds per target.
 Call Targets

Call targets will randomly call different targets for you to shoot. The software will default to calling the target zone number, but you can also customize the target names. You can even customize how many shots or how much time is needed until the next target is called.
 Save and Load Presets

You can save and load complete courses of fire, allowing you to easily switch between different drills and different setups. You can have as many presets as you like, and they can be as complex or as simple as you want.
