 TrainShot electronic paper target scanning


TrainShot has at the moment 4 shooting training modes. We start with FREE SHOOTING. Before shooting you need to scan your smart paper target. It is very simple. Press SCAN. And scan QR code on TrainShot paper target. App detects your paper target and also its type. In case QR code is damaged or you have some trouble with scanning, you can insert targets serial number manually. Note, if you change paper targets, you have to always scan next target. Now press NEXT button. Congrats, your TrainShot electronic unit is now connected and you can now start gun shooting drill 😉

A Smart Drill Makes An Easy Battle.


Free shooting offers simple shooting without any training features. BUT you can switch on Reflex mode and/or Double tap mode and specify Random time between shots.

Reflex gun drill
Want to train your shooting reflexes? Choose Reflex drill and press NEXT. Set up number of bullets in your pistol magazine and press START. App beeps and flashes green light. After this audio and visual signals you have to shoot as fast as you can. TrainShot monitors every single shot, zones and split times of the hit. After shooting app shows you a chart with your results. Zone of the hit, split time, score and total accuracy, average time and hit pactor. This chart is saved in your personal profile and an be sent to your mail or share.  

With Double tap you have to shoot twice. After shooting your results chart shows split times, average time and average split time.

You simply go back in app and shoot again. No more wasting time by moving target or squint to binoculars.



This shooting mode is actually my favourite 😉 Note, this shooting mode works only with reactive shooting target Circles. It’s very similar to Reflex mode, but app tells you which zone you have to hit. So again you can train shooting with or without Double tap, than you set up number of bullets in your pistol magazine and press START. App beeps and tells you which zone you have to hit. Charlie! Bravo! Echo! Alpha! And after each round of shooting app shows your shooting results chart. Zone of the hit, which zone you actually hit, time of reflex, score and accuracy, average time and hit factor. You only press BACK and next shooting round starts. It really as a virtual shooting trainer and it’s fun shooting target.
