Laserlyte cartridge trainer

Anyone have one of these drop in laser training dummy cartridges? How do you like it? I am considering for my Glock 17 for in house dry fire practice, but have read a lot of mixed reviews. Some say it's great, while others say the POA/POI is off even at 5 yds., or the Glock firing pin damages the rear of the cartridge and then the laser is not properly activated.

I had one. Worked fairly well but honestly it isn't even close to simulating a visit to the range (I state the obvious). I was planning to use it to work on trigger control. Biggest issue for me was getting it to reset. You have to shoot a certain area and sometimes I had to walk right up to it in order to reset. That got old real quick. My kids really liked it. If it was about $20 it would be worth it.

So you are talking about the target. Did you have the cartridge itself too?

Yes. I had the target and cartridge. Like I mentioned, things worked ok except for the reset. I just don't think it is worth the amount they charge. Seemed more like a toy and didn't do anything I couldn't accomplish with dry fire drills. Just adds a visual for you.
