A great way to improve your shooting is to shoot. The best way to improve your shooting is to shoot well. You could go to a range every day, close your eyes and blast through a magazine full of rounds while holding the gun gangsta style and never improve one tiny bit.

The problem is that ammo is expensive right now, difficult to find and ranges are crowded. It makes things difficult to get the practice we want. Dry fire practice is ok but it still leaves out that needed feedback of “would that shot have hit anything?”, which is the ultimate goal of shooting.

This review, however, pertains only to the standard LTS Target.
