Anyone else using a mantis for training?
I've had mine for a couple of weeks now. I'm not using all of its features, but the three things I've been working on have improved a lot:
* Trigger pull is now in the mid-high 90s. Found several little things I was doing inefficiently. Can't wait to try this live fire at the range.
* My draw-to-first-shot (well, click, because I'm dry firing) has gone from 1.37 to .81. I won't know until the range if that's an A zone hit, but I'll bet it is... the dot is overlayed on the target when I hear the click.
* Compressed surprise break - Press trigger as quickly and as correctly as possible on a random delayed start signal.
The holster draw has been really helpful for getting the time down. The X10 app breaks the draw up into five phases and gives times for each. I was wasting a lot of time at the end (confirming / overconfirming sight picture before trigger pull). The Mantis is MUCH better than a shot timer because I know how long I spent in each phase (establishing grip, pulling from holster, moving to horizontal, etc), instead of just a par time or hoping the shot timer hears you pull the trigger (dry fire again).
Anyone tried their Blackbeard for AR style rifles?
