with no eye or ear protection and I haven't left my house.

I love this thing.

I've ordered the target, too.

You can save a lttle money by using EBay.

Does the LT-PRO work with a SnapCap in the chamber, or does that cushion the impact of the FP too much? I went with the new cartridge specific model that acts like a SnapCap and I agree that they are great. Surprisingly accurate, and you'll love the TLB-1; it works well. I don't know what you paid, but LaserLyte also offers BIG discount on direct sales to NRA members. Good people.

Any ideas on how to make it work with a glock. Without having to rack the slide after each shot.

I have an LT-PRO and it doesn't matter if you use a snap cap or not. It hears the click just as well either way, and then fires a short laser burst.

I love mine. This is the tool that helped me finally perfect my trigger pull after getting a Glock, because at first I couldn't shoot well with the gun, and this thing taught me what I was doing wrong with the Glock trigger. It's paid for itself in saved ammo a few times over now, because live ammo practice just wasn't helping me to improve at first.

It's too bad more people don't understand just what this training device can do for you.

This is one solution, but I have my doubts that replacing the trigger bar, thus replacing the feel and function of your live-fire trigger, is the way to go for dry fire practice.

Or just a slight slide rack will reset the trigger. I've been zeroing my revolvers that have Crimson Trace grips. The target is supposed to be good up to 50 yards. It's going to be great to shoot in my back yard.

I use snap caps in most of my guns and the LT-Pro is working great. I paid $140 for the target.

Do any of you use the caliber-specific Laser Trainer Cartridge? Unless I misunderstand, it seems like it would be easier than the LT-PRO.

No, I got the Pro Trainer so I could use it with my 9's, .38/.357's, .380's, .45's and .45LC.

Here is another interesting alternative for dry-fire practice with a bore laser:

Magic Bullet Laser Ammo (http://glockstore.com/index.php?tpl=search&search_val=magic+bullet+laser+ammo)<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>
<o:p></o:p>
<o:p>These are the major features I gathered from the product description:</o:p>
Laser with snap-cap switch “cartridge” loads at breech

Std. is 9mm. Adapters available for 40S&W ($8), 45ACP ($8), and 12 gauge shotgun ($40)

Safety pipe inserts into muzzle and screws into laser cartridge. It further aligns the laser along barrel axis and secures the cartridge. It stays put regardless of how many times the slide is racked. Std. safety pipe fits barrels up to 4.75” long. Shorter safety pipe available to fit up to 3.5” barrel ($9.99).

Snap cap switches are replaceable units ($35), separate from laser unit. Good for 5,000 laser shots each under warranty.

Special snap cap switch available to turn laser into constant-on bore sighting device ($35). One trigger pull on, one trigger pull off.

Simulator settings available to operate with various third-party simulation systems such as those sold by Beamhit, Advanced Interactive Systems (AIS-SIM), and others ($35).<o:p></o:p>

Evidently, the firing pin is not engaged, which makes it even less realistic in simulating the live-fire trigger. Glock Talk member samurairabbi describes the function of this particular Trigger Reset Kit (http://www.glocktalk.com/forums/showthread.php?p=16997685#post16997685) in this way:
"I own two of these units.

The unit completely replaces the entire trigger assembly. The trigger bar, connector, trigger spring, and trigger housing are all modified or shifted from original Glock parts. With this unit installed, a round cannot be fired.

The ramp surfaces are ground so that the trigger will reset when the trigger is fully pulled, without the slide cycling to hit the reset tab on the connector. The firing pin is never engaged by the trigger bar cruciform. An "extra" spring is installed to move the trigger back forward when finger pressure is relaxed. This assembly is a kludge, but I have found it a useful kludge for teaching students."

Dave, I don't know if you are an NRA member or not (hope so), but, as I mentioned in post #2, if you are, you could have saved another 10% buying direct from LaserLyte. If not an NRA member, TradingPostSupply.com would have still saved you $15.

I know . . . it's only money . . . enjoy.

Thanks! As usual I already jumped in. I paid 238.05 + 11.95 shipping, total 250.00.

Not a bad price but I always find out about discounts after the fact. I have a note on my wall that says "Glock Talk - Ameriglo!" just so I won't forget.:embarassed:

Yesterday I was going to do some more shooting using my LT-Pro. I kept the unit in the barrel of my S&W Pro 60. I was pulling out the unit and the main body separated from the adapter. I was able to push the adapter out of the barrel and it appeared the threads were stripped.

Keep in mind, you have to unscrew it and remove the batteries because there is no On/Off switch. The first thing I did was check the instructions to get a phone number for CS. I went to their website and got the CS info. It's Sunday, so they are closed and they open up at 10am EST today.

Last night (Sunday) I sent them an email explaining the problem and asked for someone to call me. This morning at 10:05am EST, I get a call from them!

The problem will be fixed or replaced and I had it in the mail back to them by 2pm. I get back home and what's by my mailbox? The target I bought for the unit.:crying: I hope they get the unit back to me soon. It's really fun and accurate.

Do I think it's great? No. It's fun but the system is not perfect. Is it worth the money I have invested? No. But during Winter months it helps pass the time. If I had to do it all over again, I'd have bought another laser for one of my guns.

I am addressing anyone who has had one of these items for a while.

They look really good, but I am wondering if after a week of dry firing, they will start collecting dust.
