    I have some in my collection, believe from the 1970.s. Not too accurate, had a red case and black bullet

    Seems they’re expanding the range of products.
    Interesting.

    New Toy - Works Well!

    Since I like shooting a lot, and I don't want to always be limited by Covid, by holidays, by other impedimenta, I decided to give a dry-fire system a try.
    Yesterday I received "the bullet" and set up a short range at home, 7 metres.
    Downloaded the app on my iPad and put a standard 8 inch target, in this case all white, on the wall.
    Chambered the round and started shooting at it single action with my Bernardelli P-One. Being that a personal defence pistol, POA and POI coincide perfectly.
    I must say that the system works well.
    I got all the shots, showed them exactly in the right spot also in the iPad and got me happy enough to be really willing to start using it regularly.
    This week I'll be a tad busy, but maybe on Sunday I will be able to set up my range in the garden, where I can shoot at 15 metres without being seen by nobody, and start training.
    Tonight and Saturday morning I'll be RO on the range, so I'm not giving up the real shooting. I just wanted some simple way to keep the skills even in case Dystopia should go on still...

    Looks like all is in stock...not surprising with primers so hard to find. Do was bullets shoot well in, say, a 1903 Springfield? I'd love to work with my kids on positional shooting with these.

    This is how the target looks like.
    I’m really enjoying it at the moment.
