Its a wild world out there. Anyone who doesnt know it hasnt been watching TV. Despite all the security features of modern society (from CCTVs to alarm systems), many Americans still feel vulnerable. This is the primary reason why gun sales are higher than ever, and are still expected to increase in the coming years.
With gun owners through the roof, another question arises -- are these people responsible enough to wield their weapons? Have they received enough training to use their guns properly when they need to? Sure, there are lots of gun clubs and shooting ranges out there, but their prices are not always friendly for the average citizen.
The better ones charge for everything - from firearm rental to ammo, to eye/ear protection and target boards. That does not even count in the fee for being in the range. Of course, this isnt a one-time fee -- no one can learn to shoot properly after a single session.
If we aim for a safer society, we need an alternative for training in firearms. Something safe and compact. Something easy to use, and cost-effective. Something like the Gunfighter Simulation System. Additional information here.
The Systems Portable Trainer is a one-of-a-kind technology, which is specifically designed for those interested in personal protection. You can easily set it up in various locations, essentially being a mobile shooting range. With over 200 scenarios that cover anything from active shooters to burglars, it immerses its users in life-like scenarios no target boards can.
It trains not only your accuracy and proficiency, but also your judgment and cognitive processes through a virtual experience and its no arcade game either. The simulator includes two dry-fire handguns, with the exact feel and action of a real one. You can fit them with lasers to serve as training wheels for beginners.
There is also a Picture-in-Picture system, which allows users to assess their own posture and actions. This is something that can neither be obtained at the arcade nor at real shooting ranges.
The Portable Trainer uses a laptop computer optimized for the software. While being a complete Windows system with an Office Suite for recording and media creation/presentation purposes, it also has a High Definition video card, which perfectly replicates the needed scenarios. These scenarios are stored in two hard drives that can store up to 1,500 different scenes, and are projected via the bundled HD projector, which guarantees true-to-life imaging.
The system also has a customized report generator and template designer -- instructors will only have to put in the Name, Scenario Title, Date and Time. Everything else is filled up by the computer. These reports can then be exported to the standard MS Office Suite formats.
Its not all sights, too -- the sounds are just as realistic. Using a 5.1 Surround Sound speaker system, the trainees are exposed to sounds appropriate to the locations on the screen. Instructors may also choose to play their own audio from a specific location in the room. This is often used to provide directional feedback.
Relevance, realism and effectiveness are all qualities that the Gunfighter Simulation System has. The system allows instructors to teach and evaluate trainees in a way that conventional systems cannot. It also allows valuable training for all levels, from those who have just bought their first gun to those seasoned vets of the shooting range.
The scenarios advance in much the same way as real life, where decisions made at one point can trigger different branches, leading to divergent outcomes. With entertainment built in, learning how to be a responsible gun owner has never been so rewarding.
