Anyone use any of the laser "bullet" dry fire training systems?

I do dry fire exercises everyday but need more feedback than "yeah the gun is pointed at the target". Some of them like iTarget use a phone app that capture the laser "impact" point and scores the hit.

With kids and work I don't make it to the range nearly often enough, thinking this might help keeping the skills up.

Many of the guys I train with don't like the lasers because you take the focus off your sights to see the laser hit. Not sure if that matters much, but I bought a Mantis X10 and love it. Tracks everything from trigger pull to draw speed live/dry. It's an awesome toy.

They are a good training tool and definitely better than not shooting. I've had some guys with issues when recoil is reintroduced from an actual gunshot. Esp for multiple shots

None of my firearms have a rail, so I can't use the Mantis.

Have you looked into the paint type bullets? They are like a paint ball but fit in a magazine

That means you need a new gun.
Well, the simple answer are best, :D but that isn't in the cards right now.

All my guns are older, before rails became all the rage.

No I haven't, didn't even know something like that exists.
