The iTarget Pro app is designed to work with the iTarget firearm training system available from our website. Be sure to check out the instructional video on our website.
The app allows you to use your phone to monitor a paper target for hits from the iTarget laser bullet. The iTarget system allows you to safely practice dry-fire training while perfecting the fundamentals of firearm shooting and marksmanship.
The iTarget Pro app makes dry-fire training more fun by keeping score and displaying your shot placement while you are shooting. It also allows you to save your final results to your camera roll for sharing with your friends or friendly competition.
Dry fire practice is used by the FBI, the US military, police departments and competitive shooters.
Dry-fire practice is recommend by most firearm instructors and is used extensively by professional marksman because it allows you to get more practice time in without the expense of range time.
To use the app, select the game mode you wish to play. At this time, only Bullseye is available. Next, you need to agree to the safety precautions. Please read and follow these precautions for your safety and those around you.
Adjust the sled so that the image of the target fills the screen of the phone.
Better results may be achieved by moving the target further away and using
the zoom. Do not allow the camera to see off the edge of the target.
Use two fingers to scale the red scoring overlay and drag it over the image
of the target. If your scoring is off, this is where the adjustment is made.
Go to settings to adjust the sensitivity. Different lighting conditions require different sensitivity adjustments. Adjust the sensitivity until the target area is black. Test with the laser to see how the app responds.
Pressing thumbs up will start the practice session. If the app registers false hits, lower the sensitivity and make sure the camera is not seeing off the target. If the app doesn’t register the hits, raise the sensitivity.
Changing the lighting conditions in the practice area may require a change in the sensitivity adjustment. When done practicing, you can save the target image by pressing thumbs up and the download button.
What's New in Version 1.5
iTarget Pro now has a ballistic offset feature. If your sights have been zeroed for the range to account for bullet drop or wind, or if the laser isn't hitting where your sights are aligned, you can now zero the app to match your sights. Align the target Overlay as usual, then, in settings, choose ballistic offset. Set your sights on the center of the target and shoot the laser. Ignore where the laser actually hits, keep your sights centered on the bullseye. The app will take an average of the last 5 shots. When you go back to start training, the app will now offset where the holes appear from where the laser actually hits. This new feature will solve any inaccuracy with lasers and actual ballistics. This update also fixes the iphone going to sleep during training.
Excellent idea, workable execution
Received this today, once I got it running I am very happy. It does just what it claimed to. Sure it could be made of heavier materials but unless you are training outside it doesn't matter. If you consider the cost of the laser module alone - it's priced very reasonably. This is already saving me time to and from the range and 100 RDS working on fundamentals and it provides a better draw shoot environment than I currently have available at my range. My wife used it today and she loves the stress free ability you get familiar with a new pistol (been after her for months to get some time in a new gun I bought). Today, no sweat. She loved it. When was the last time you documented each round you fired when you trained. Bravo Joe Jenius!
It's a must need for training! It's also fun!
I purchased the bullet and sled combo and I'm so happy with this purchase. I've probably put 300 shots through this the first night. Works great and real accurate!
I use this to practice my accuracy on drawing from concealment. It has helped me with my speed and efficiency. I definitely noticed an improvement in speed with my last range day. I also practiced shooting from different angles in my house just in case I was caught in a home invasion. I also have my wife or a friend place the target somewhere in the house to practice clearing. Sometimes I just have fun shooting during commercials.
Also you can shoot in all lighting conditions, you just have to adjust the app sensitivity of the laser. If there's a change in lighting since my last session, I can quickly calibrate the laser sensitivity and be shooting in no time.
I've recommended this product to all my shooting friends and they've really enjoyed it. I'm also going to buy the .223 round eventually when I pick up my rifle.
Awesome Idea & Product
This item arrived a little while back, but I just now got an opportunity to get into it because I assumed it would take awhile to set up, but I was wrong. I was up and shooting within 10 minutes. I really like it because u can see where you hit on the target as soon as you shoot, and my phone keeps track of them. Seeing the hit in real time is helpful, because it makes this an excellent tool to help me with adjustments I need to make in my sighting, stance, line up, grip, etc...
Not only am I already shooting better, but I know this item will easily pay for itself in what I'm saving on rounds.
