LaserLyte Laser Training Target System Review

WHAT IS IT? It is a firearms training device that records the location of laser hits on the target. The idea is to shoot at it with your own gun (actually dry firing your gun with a laser product) and have your shots visible on the target just like bullet holes. To see your hits you have to shoot at and hit another display, then to erase your hits from the target you have to shoot at a different reset display. It is a lightweight box (weighing about 1 pound) and is approximately 10 inches long and six inches wide. It operates on three AA batteries which will power it for roughly 6,000 shots.

How To Use It

  1. Turn it on and position it at a convenient distance in your home (or any location). You may have to dim your lights for maximum effect of the laser. Shots can be registered up to 50 yards away.

  2. With a LaserLyte Cartridge or other Laser Trainer installed in your unloaded weapon, fire the gun at the target. Aim at the large target and dry fire as many times as you want.

  3. To display your hits, fire the laser at the small red display circle on the left face of the target.

  4. To start over and clear the target of all hits, simply dry fire the laser aimed at the small red reset circle.



The Good Things

  1. Provides a visible record of your shots just like at the range.

  2. Saves time and money (trips to the range, range costs and ammo costs).

  3. Lets your practice your firearms training in the comfort of your own home.

  4. Completely safe.

  5. Quiet.


The Bad Things

  1. PROBLEM FOR ME. The target portion is large and easy to hit. The display and reset portions are small and much harder to hit. If you are a bad shot to begin with, this could be a problem.

  2. BIGGEST DRAWBACK. It does not provide instantaneous recordings of your laser strike (no instant feedback). It would be nice to shoot the gun (laser), and have the hit recorded instantly on the target (as well as subsequent shots) until you reset the target.

  3. It has no attachments or straps to allow it to hang on a wall. It is designed to be set upright on a table or bench.

  4. It is not cheap.

  5. Does not work in sun light. (See Feedback/Comments below).

The Laserlyte does not work outside in the sunlight

January 27, 2012
My friend brought his Laserlyte target to the range parking lot to show me how it worked. It didn't. After turning it on hitting it with the laser of his Taurus TCP no hits were recorded. It was as if it had no batteries in it. He said he would investigate at home. I asked him to see what happens if you hit it with a laser then move the laser on the target in the form of a "Z" or squiggly line. Does the target record the entire line of just the initial strike. He tried it at home and responded in the following email.

"Tanner, I checked the Laserlyte target and the batteries are OK. It works fine. It works well in bright florescent or incandescent lighting even when held close to the light. It does not work in sun light. There must be a wavelength component in sun light that interferes with it but it is intended for outdoor use. You may want to put this info on your website."

"I tried smearing the laser and it only records the first contact of the beam as a dot."
