Question $120 FATS type trainer- video

I watched this video and first thought it would be a waste of time... Then I started second guessing my thought

It is a $120 program that tracks your shots with a webcam.

As most of us have a PC/ MAC with a camera, the cost is for the program and some type of laser trainer...like the SIRT laser that I also dismissed as not for me...


It seems that for under $400, one could have decent tools to practice
Presenting from the holster
Presenting while moving from the holster
Training on hearing a command, selecting a target and shooting
Training on transitioning from target to target
Etc

It definitely not the same as live fire training, but they might be onto something


What do you think? Good, bad,awesome or aweful

I see a lot of people on forums say they want a laser for dry fire practice. The 5 time USPSA National Production champion sells a dry fire book for $18.

Many (all?) of the top competitive shooters just dry fire in their basement/living room; I never see/hear them talk about lasers.
