Has any used or have any advice on one of the Laser Dry fire practice systems?

As a new shooter I was think of getting one to assist in my at home practice.

Thoughts as to good or bad welcome!!

Thanks in advance

Hi there,
I don't have any first-hand experience with any dry firing systems, but I am fairly active on Instagram and amd the Mantis system seems to be the most regarded from my perspective. Downside - they are atrocious to ship here. The system itself I think works out to about $220CDN but shipping is an extra $40 or $50 - absurd.
None the less, I have only heard good things :). Likely worth the investment.

Don't bother. It will induce bad habits. If you're shooting the laser at a regular target, it will make you habituated to looking at the target for confirmation.

Even if the target was reactive, you're still teaching yourself to hear auditory feedback.

Learn to dry fire, read your sights, practice proper grip, and confirm with live fire.

There are also some great books with some dry-fire drills and exercises ...... by Ben Stoeger and Steve Anderson to name but two. There are MANY more out there so YMMV.
Is this thing on?

Can anyone recommend a shot timer that will successfully pick up dry firing?

No need. Set a 'par time' on your timer (you'll get both a start and stop beep) and work to finish the drill before the second beep.

Exactly this. Learn to not "cheat" because you can always push to make a par time by degrading the sight picture needed. Don't race to beat the par time, just press the trigger when the sight picture is appropriate, and work to improve your par time from that.
