iTarget Turns Any Handgun Into A Laser Toy Gun For Shooting Practice

Owning a gun for home protection is one thing. Being ready and qualified to shoot it is another matter entirely. Simply put, you need to be acquainted with using your pistol. And while there’s no shortage of gun ranges to do just that, iTarget offers a simpler, more cost-effective alternative.

Instead of driving down to the range to put in your practice time, it lets you do all your shooting practice anywhere in the house. It doesn’t matter whether you live in a large property with expansive land, a house in the suburbs with a small backyard, or a small apartment in a city high-rise – this thing will let you get sufficient practice safely and affordably.

The iTarget is a laser-based shooting system. That is, you shoot lasers instead of actual ammo, which allows it to be safe and less-costly than actual shooting practice. Instead of using a special laser-armed gun, though, it’s designed to work with your existing gun by putting the laser in a rimless bullet instead (currently available in .38 ACP, 9mm, .40 S&W, .45 ACP and .223 caliber choices, with more to come). Once you’ve put the ammo in your gun’s chamber, it shoots out a beam of laser every instance you pull the trigger, with the rimless design ensuring it never leaves the barrel at any point in time.

Want a record of how accurate your shooting is? Not a problem, as the system includes a target dock called Sled and an accompanying phone app. Just set up the target, along with the phone, in their designated places and the app takes care of recording every single one of your shots, so you can review for later.

An Indiegogo campaign is currently running for the iTarget. Pledges to reserve a unit (laser bullet plus Sled) starts at $89.

    This is a simple home laser target shooting set-up that is very inexpensive, especially when compared to other laser target systems on the market. For $49.99 you can shoot all day and not spend any money on Ammo! I’m surprised that didn’t release a .22 option bullet.

    Android fans are out of luck right now. They are actively trying to add an Android app, but like they say, there is no guarantee it will work with your phone because all the Android phones are so different. Fortunately they will refund your money on the IndiGoGo campaign if the Android app doesn’t work accurately with your phone when it is released. This is not a problem with the developer but a problem of the fractured Android market.

    The iTarget will be successful and the reason believe this is because I want one. I am not a gun enthusiast, but I sure love shooting once in a while. With the iTarget I can shoot when I want without leaving my apartment and without spending any money. If I am excited about this, then I can only imagine how true gun enthusiasts feel about this app and laser bullet shooting simulator.

    I’m not a big gun fan but this is a really smart idea. I’m sure there are a lot of people out there who don’t want to use their bullets and would also just enjoy the ability to stay home and practice instead of heading out to the range. One thing I do know about guns is that they are not cheap and either is the ammo. I know a few people who could easily go shooting and be down a couple hundred bucks. This would be a really great way for parents to not only teach their children about gun safety but prepare them for the day when they are actually ready to shoot for real.
