MantisX Training Tool

Our 12 Days of Giveaways is about half over at this point in the game (12/9/2018) – 12/20/2018), but there are still several chances to win excellent products for doing nothing more than downloading and opening our Concealed Carry App on your smart device. This time around, we're giving away a MantisX valued at about $150.

So, what's the big deal with MantisX? Well, I have one and I can say that it is an excellent training/dry fire practice tool. It helps you diagnose your shooting problems like if you're slapping the trigger, gripping too tight, have too loose of a grip, anticipating, etc.

It also helps you to track your practice so you can see your progression, and know what you need to work on for your live fire. I love mine, and to be honest, I don't use it enough for my dry fire practice.

What's really cool about it, is that you can see in real time what's going on by pairing the device on your gun (the MantisX) to your smart device via Bluetooth, like your phone. And, it forces you to compete with yourself so you can get better at dryfire. Each issue it detects is displayed on the screen of your paired smart device with an explanation of what you can do to fix your issue.

The information displayed on the Spider Chart screen gives your shot a numerical score and directs you on what can help you improve.

Another cool thing is that you can see your history and how you're getting better over time, which could actually help you in court if you ever need to defend yourself. You can find a more in depth list of reasons on why you'd want to track your training, here.

You can learn more about the MantisX Training Tool, here (yes, we do sell them in our store). And, to find out about how you can win one in our 12 Days of Giveaways, go here.

    I would love this system. Too bad in too broke to afford it. Here is hoping to the drawing.
