Even more important during a self-defense scenario than accurate shot placement is the sound judgment required to decide whether to pull the trigger at all. And just as LaserLyte’s Score Tyme Target (May 2015, p. 77) brought practical laser training to the former skill, the company’s new Laser Color Guard Kit is doing the same for the latter.
The bundle contains both a Color Guard Trainer Target and a Trainer Pistol Full-Size. The Color Guard Trainer Target features one 3.5" illuminated target that randomly shifts its colored display between red, yellow, blue and green. The Color Guard Trainer Target weighs just 9.5 ozs., uses two AA batteries and can be operated either muted or with sound to provide auditory feedback.
Green and blue targets are designated as “enemy” targets, and a successful strike on one of those colors adds a point to the user’s score, while red and yellow targets represent non-threats, and shooting the target at that time will forfeit a point. The amount of time each color is presented changes at random, forcing users to quickly decide whether the situation calls for a shot or not. Price: $240.
