Open Range 2.0
- Product Review (submitted on September 16, 2020):
I am so happy I purchased with the Laser Ammo Smokeless Range 2.0 training platform and even more so with the addition of the Open Range upgrade. The Smokeless Range is great for the new and experienced shooter alike. Building on the hand eye coordination and muscle memory in a safe low stress environment for the new shooter is fantastic. I use the system with my wife, daughters, and in-laws to help build their skills and confidence.
I combined the system with the recoil enabled Glock 17 and cannot believe the realism and shooting the steel targets is a hoot! I have a full steel shooting range on my property, and can say this is just as enjoyable. You see where you strike the target and get that satisfying bullet to steel sound. Stand up steel silhouette and plate targets fall as they are struck to give immediate visual feedback. I used a stand alone Taotronics 120” projection screen and ViewSonic 3600 Lumens WXGA High Brightness Projector with awesome results.
The Open Range upgrade give you numerous different shooting ranges with steel, paper, and mixed steel/paper targets. They have various enemy, clown, and zombie pop up/out targets that also add a bit of fun to the shoot. I was a bit nervous spending $400 on the Open Range upgrade… but it is worth every penny. I haven’t even begun to program my own ranges which is another awesome upgrade advantage that I need to take sit down and do. I cannot wait to place targets and build my own ranges for the system. During an ammo shortage, which we have so often lately, I only have to replace some CO2 cartridges and I’m shooting again. If you have had this in your cart and though about hitting the purchase button, but aren’t sure if it’s worth it….. it is!
