I have seen these advertised and I need to find one. It is a pistol or a laser that attaches to your pistol and a target that shows the hits. Where can I get one. I have a friend who is a LEO and he had a brain tumor removed and is still in the hospitol after 3 months. He is an avid shooter and I think something like this would really cheer him up and help him with his hand-eye coordination. Please no LEO bashing on this thread, this guy is one of the good ones.

Beam Hit ([url]http:www.beamhit.com[/url]) If you're an NRA member, they've got a special going on their web site: [url]http://www.nra.org/modules/beamhit/190pmts.cfm[/url] I've never used any of their systems, but a co-worker has the NRA setup and said it was pretty neat. You do need a computer for this one - it evidently has a video camera that connects to your computer, and then the PC uses this to "read" the laser dot when you dry-fire your gun. I saw a recent show on the Discover Channel (I think) called Basic Training where they showed Army recruits using the standalone Beam Hit system with their M-16s. I don't like the looks of the large laser module that comes with the basic systems. Their web site seems to indicate that there's a smaller version that fits more of the module inside your barrel (so it can be used with a holster).

Thanks for the link. The one I'm thinking about doesn't require a computer, I'm trying to find something he can use in his hospitol room.

I think Beamhit makes a simple one: detector/target hangs on a wall like a plaque and a laser mounted on a caliber specific arbor slips into the barrel. First time I saw one it was at a local gunshop. The owners decided that since everyone who looked at pistols was holding them up to sight and asking if they could dry fire, why not do that and show them how the sights worked? Try this:[url]http://www.beamhit.com/products/110System.htm[/url] BTW Check with hospital administration first: 1) firearms posessed by anyone other than security are considered a no no 2) Hospitals are not the most secure places, things have a tendency to walk off.

This system appears to use a real firearm. Are they going to let him have it in the hospitial?

Thanks talbalos, thats what I was looking for. His wife, who is a LEO also, has talked to the admin. and OK'ed anything we can find that is safe and that will help. She can secure it so that will not be a problem. I think this will make one really happy guy, I know it would help me if I were in his position.
