Not sure what you are asking.  It is safe to dry fire any center fire gun, but not a rim fire, but not too often.  Dummy ammo should be used.

I know that Optics Planet and a few others sell a number of different SIRT Laser trainer guns and reactive targets.  Some of the setups get quite expensive, however (as in the price of a new gun).

I have one.  It was payment for a course I was teaching.

Not sure what you are getting for less than 100.  Sirts are
between 200-400.

If you want to see it, let me know.

They may be of use for a 'never fired a gun person', but without the recoil/noise, it has limited use, IMHO.  Radnor teaches real life bang/bang.  Big difference.

I might train for trigger discipline and control with an item like this-http://www.cabelas.com/product/LaserLyte-Pistol-Trainer-Cartridge/1341940.uts?slotId=1

If I was practicing a draw, the item you posted looked interesting with the accidental discharge alarm. It is expensive and I agree it doesn't compare with drawing a hot pistol then firing, re-holstering. I bet Radnor would be the guy to take that kind of class or meet at action pistol night to get a few tips and live practice. Cheap date excellent results.  Grin

Trigger reset will make a BIG difference too.
