I'm kinda working on a blog post (I know, weird, right?) about dry firing from the n00b-with-kids-and-no-time perspective. In it, I will sing the praises of the SIRT and decry the shortfalls of the SIRT.

It's going to end up mostly being about the SIRT, in other words, because for reasons of safety and convenience, that's become my main dry fire tool.

However, I think I'll also write about my greatest regret from NRAAM, which was not going immediately to an ATM and getting out the cash to purchase a Laserlyte set. They were selling the large blue gun, the laser insert and the large target for $150 at the show, but cash only, when I visited on the last afternoon. If they'd taken debit cards, I'd have bought it on the spot. If I'd have passed an ATM, I'd have gone back for it right then. But I kept thinking, "I'll think it over until I see an ATM, this place must be full of 'em" until it was time to make a flight.
I shoulda gone out looking for an ATM and closed that deal right away, because I can see several advantages for the Laserlyte system over the SIRT. In fact, the only real disadvantage I saw was that the feedback from the target could be deceptive given that the laser's point of impact was off from the sights on the blue gun, and I can imagine the same thing happening with the insert in a pistol. But in terms of pure trigger work with a strong reset and a clear break, plus the ability to let your kid play with the thing any time you feel like it, the Laserlyte looks awesome.
It's hard to justify owning both, but . . . . I think I'm going to do my best. Can't practice reloads with a Laserlyte gun, right? That's the ticket.
