Methods of teaching gun handling skills and training the shooting process itself have come a long way forward. In this regard, analytical training systems, or shooting simulators as they are also called, have become widespread.

While studying this subject, it is impossible to pass by the MantisX high-tech shooting performance system adapted for dry shots and work with live ammunition. The use of such a system has reduced the risks to the individual during training and increased the accuracy and quality of shooting.


A special feature of the Mantis X is the very approach to the training process, based on data collection and analysis. All this is made possible by a smart sensor.
When attached to the weapon, the Mantis X sensor captures and analyzes the trajectory and every movement of the weapon during firing, as well as during the aiming and holding period, and then sends the data to the shooter's phone or tablet, which is analyzed by the control software. Each shot is scored based on how far the shooter moved away from the aiming position while pulling the trigger. A maximum score of 100 means that you have not moved at all, which is almost impossible. In addition, MantisX determines the direction of the barrel movement. As a result, the program provides practical recommendations aimed at correcting and improving shooting skills.

How to use MantisX

To get started, the shooter needs to attach the sensor to the accessory bar and install the app on his or her gadget. The developer app is available for both Android and iOS. Next, you need to connect it to the sensor via Bluetooth and the mantis x training system is fully ready to use. The MantisX shooting performance system tracks all exercises and generates reports to identify trends in shooting and evaluate the progress. The MantisX training system is suitable for any weapon, be it pistol, rifle or shotgun. The lack of an accessory bar is not a problem, as the system manufacturers offer a wide range of universal and customized adapters.

MantisX shooting performance systems are suitable both for individuals who follow the system recommendations to improve their own skills and for professional instructors to control and monitor the training process. MantisX also offers its own Laser Academy training system for dry fire training. This system uses a laser training cartridge that is dispatched into the chamber and directs a laser beam every time the firing pin hits the cartridge. The points of impact are read by the camera of the phone or tablet with the app installed and assess each shot. This principle is used in almost all laser shooting ranges, both with static and dynamic interactive target environments.
