I worked for Beamhit and did a lot of predeployment training on the LMTS and its sniper cousin the STS. And ran a lot of training on the FATS/EST stuff. They had some good points but all in all I dont think they were ever used correctly. The LMTS was a great way to boresight...but other than that..meh...

Misuse is and was certainly the biggest problem. Good shooters tend to "meh" all of these options because they're already doing the things that matter (disiplined dry and live practice).

We used the weaponeer and EST at Parris Island for remedial training I can't honestly say they did any good. When we were training NG units for deployment I did like using the LMTS lasers for boresighting. I used to go to Fort BENNING for every sniper course and run the Beamhit Sniper Training System for them and I think it was a good dry fire device as you could run mildot range estimation training with it and it had a cool trace program for dry firing where you could watch the guys flinch and buck.. I like the MantisX stuff thats out there. I've dry fired a bunch with mine and its a good training aid. Having said all that a quality air rifle/pistol is better and they make great anti-stray cat systems.
