Laser light is different from normal light in that it contains only one wavelength. The wavelength of light emitted by the laser of your training pistol must be compatible with our target’s sensors so that hits can be detected quickly and reliably.
Fortunately, our patent pending targets are sensitive to a wide range of wavelengths, from 530 nanometers on up to 640 nanometers. This range of sensitivity is compatible with most Class 3R (or Class IIIa) lasers commonly found in laser-based firearm training products, encompassing a range of colors from bright RED (640nm – 635nm) to brilliant GREEN (535nm – 530nm).
CHECK WITH THE MANUFACTURER OF YOUR FIREARM TRAINING PRODUCT TO FIND THE WAVELENGTH OF THE CLASS 3R OR CLASS IIIa LASER USED.
If the wavelength is within the range of 530nm to 640nm, you should have no problem using Shooter Make Ready targets. If the wavelength falls outside of the range shown here, the laser is probably NOT compatible with Shooter Make Ready targets.
Does the laser turn ON-OFF in a quick burst, or pulse, with each pull of the trigger? Or does the laser stay ON continuously for as long as the trigger pull is held?
Most often, the laser is activated either by sound vibrations or by the striker or firing pin of the training firearm impacting the rear of a laser cartridge or insert, resulting in a pulse of light typically lasting up to 100 milliseconds. A laser pulse of this type is ideal for Shooter Make Ready targets, as their sensors can quickly and reliably discern hits.
DETERMINE WHETHER OR NOT YOUR TRAINING PRODUCT ACTIVATES THE LASER IN A SHORT PULSE WITH EACH PULL OF THE TRIGGER.
If the laser pulses with a duration within the range of 40ms to 100ms with each pull of the trigger, as with most laser cartridges and inserts, you should have no problem using Shooter Make Ready targets and app. An ideal pulse is between 40ms to 60ms in duration.
Hopefully this information is helpful for understanding the requirements and knowing what to expect for using your laser training pistol with Shooter Maker Ready targets and the app.
