Option 1 : LaserLyte Universal Laser Training Device
Best for revolvers or owners of multiple handguns in different calibers
For the shortcomings with compatibility with laser cartridges, laserlyte offers a universal training device that is sound activated. This product is great for shooters who want one device that will work with most handgun calibers (.38 up to .45), or a device that will work well in a revolver (with snap caps).
It is sound activated and like the laser training cartridges fires a laser for a short period of time every time it hears the Dryfire. it should be used with a snap cap in some cases where dry firing will damage a firing pin.
This product is a little more work to set up (must be zeroed with elevation and windage, users of this device have reported having to re-sight the device every time they use it. Also, the battery life on these tend to be shorter (they are sound activated so they are always detecting for noise). It's also not the most affordable solution, but might be if someone wants to train with multiple calibers.
- Most universal option
- Works well with laser training software
- Most practical solution for revolvers
- Hard on batteries
- Needs to be re-zeroed when switching between weapons
- More expensive than some laser cartridge options
