So, I had this problem. I wanted to start training with a pistol just incase I decide to compete in a shooting match in the future. My husband, Chris, is a strong proponent of dry firing to practice grip and trigger control, which is something that can easily be done in the family room while I’m watching television. Another option is to go to a range and actually shoot, that way I can see if I hit the target.
Well, here is the problem I have … ammunition is expensive! In addition, when you have two other people shooting in your family and training for their own competitions, it gets even worse. Well, I’ve found a solution, I found my Huckleberry (just the right thing I was looking for).
The Huckleberry Target made by Real Time Targets is an electronic marksmanship training system. What I like most about it is that I can see instant results after I pull the trigger and complete my follow through. I know if I hit the bullseye immediately and if missed, a red light will show me where my shot went. What a great training tool! I’m now able to practice sight alignment, grip, and trigger pull with instant feedback. Wait, I haven’t mentioned the best part. I am using a Beretta, semiautomatic, double-action and single-action CO2 pellet gun in my own backyard. What a savings!
Now, I have to be honest with you. Yes, this is an amazing training tool but, it is also really fun. Do you have someone that is interested in shooting, but hesitant because of the noise or recoil? Want to get your children started in the shooting sports? Want some backyard family fun? The Huckleberry EMTS is the answer to all those questions.
There are many options when purchasing your Huckleberry targets. I would suggest for handgun training purposes, you get the EMTS Conceal Carry Training Kit for $625+S/H. It comes with everything you need to get started with your training.
If you are a hunter and want some rifle practice, there is even an option for you the EMTS: Hunters Kit for $900+S/H. The product is high quality and well worth the price. My only complaint is that the sounds made when the target is hit are sometime hard to hear.
Check out their website and watch some of their training vidoes. Maybe you’ll find your Huckleberry, too.
