LaserLyte Training Pistol

LaserLyte Trigger Tyme

LaserLyte has a new training pistol:  the Trigger Tyme.  If you read the marketing materials on the training gun, it would seem to be an ideal tool, especially for Glock shooters.  But does it live up to that description?

Trigger Tyme

The LaserLyte training pistol is a blue plastic training gun that approximates the size and trigger pull of a Glock 19/23 pistol.  Unlike a Glock, the Trigger Tyme resets the trigger automatically after each pull.

The pistol does not contain a laser on its own.  The user must purchase a LaserLyte LT-PRO separately, which inserts into the end of the Trigger Tyme’s “barrel.”  While the separate purchase may be a bit of a pain for some people, the LT-PRO can still be used with normal firearms allowing for a greater degree of training flexibility.

The Trigger Tyme does not have a working slide and it is impossible to insert ammo into it.  So, other than a laser beam in the eye, the gun is very safe to use.  There cannot be any accidental or negligent discharges with this training gun.

LaserLyte Kryptonyte Center Mass Shotgun Laser

LaserLyte Kryptonyte shotgun laser

The new LaserLyte Kryptonyte Center Mass shotgun laser is definitely a step away from traditional laser sighting systems.  The Center Mass system projects nine laser dots: eight in a circular pattern with the final dot in the center of the ring.  The idea is to provide the shooter a visual representation of where the shot will strike.

The farther away the target, the larger the circle.  The approximate spread is 1″ per yard of distance.  While not exact, this is a relatively decent approximation that has been taught to defensive shotgun shooters using traditional 00-buck loads in an 18″ barrel pump gun.

LaserLyte Side Mount Laser for Ruger LC9

LaserLyte Ruger LC9 LaserLaserLyte recently announced a new side mount laser for the Ruger LC9 handgun.  The laser unit is designed for easy installation and to fit in the majority of existing holsters.

The LaserLyte side mount laser is a red laser (650 nm) operating at 5 mW, which is typical for handgun lasers.  Green lasers, which tend to be more visible in daylight conditions, are frequently much more expensive than red lasers.

The LaserLyte operates on four 377 “button” batteries.  The batteries are supposed to operate for up to five hours if left on constantly.  According to the company, batteries are included.

LaserLyte laser for Taurus Judge, other revolvers

LaserLyte announced a “side mount” laser for the Taurus and Smith & Wesson line of revolvers, including the incredibly popular Taurus Judge.  The Taurus Judge is a line of medium to large revolvers that fire both .45 Colt cartridges and .410 bore shot shells (and slugs.)  This is the first time anyone has developed this kind of  side mount laser for the Judge handguns.

LaserLte says the Side Mount Laser (SML) is easily mounted underneath the rubber grip of the revolver and allows the shooter to retain the factory or custom grips, and use the same holster as an unmodified gun.  The included photos show where the laser unit mounts on the revolvers.

LaserLyte Introduces the Laser Trainer Pro

laserlyte_trainer3LaserLyte introduced a new training laser: the LaserLyte Laser Trainer Pro.  In a nutshell, this device adjusts to fit the barrels of most handguns.  Once inserted into the barrel, the device will flash a laser each time it “hears” the hammer fall.

The idea is you would use this device while dry firing to make sure that you are properly exercising the fundamentals of accurate shooting (especially trigger control) and the bullets would have gone where you thought they would have.  If the laser shines someplace different than where you were aiming, then you know something is off, and you can set about correcting your shooting.

In a time when ammo is both scarce and expensive, this little device could be valuable for anyone who practices with dry firing.  See the video below for a demonstration of how the Laser Trainer Pro works.
