The Handgun Shooting Enhancement Course (HSEC) utilizes laser training devices and a state of the art software program. The program can convert any indoor space into a 9 lane shooting range.  How does this software work?  It is as easy as inserting a laser training device into the chamber of a real handgun, rifle or shotgun.  When you squeeze the trigger the firing pin strikes the laser training device which emits a single laser pulse.  When the laser pulse hits the intended target the location is monitored by a webcam and registered by the software.  The software provides instant audible and visual feedback as well as records the time, score and categorizes each hit.  The student will have hands on training on the following.
