Powerpoint deck for Dryfire training

Recommended Posts

robot   

I don’t use 2/3 sized targets that most people do, I’m blessed with having a large screen HP Touchsmart PC in my room that I use as a target surface. In order to make the scenarios more dynamic, I cobbled together a Powerpoint deck that was originally created by T.Ron, a local influential NWPPA Safety Officer and Stats meister. I modified it mainly to use as a USPSA dry-fire program (changed targets to USPSA Metric style) and added swingers, plates, texas stars and others.

You can read my post and download the PPT deck here : http://gunbot.wordpress.com/2012/11/06/gunaim-powerpoint-dryfire-deck/

Hope you find it useful, and if you do, let me know, send me a mail or something. I’d love to know how you’ve used it. Better yet, record a video!

That's really cool. Thanks for sharing. I have used the tool on Matt Burkett's site before, but never thought of putting it together in a power point like that.

Very nice. You did a good job in giving it some variety.

On swinger left and swinger right, I get no movement. Just the green rectangle. Is this an indication of an old version of PowerPoint?

Thanks.

Thanks guys! Glad you find it useful.

Bill, I think you need a newer version of Powerpoint or you could use the free Powerpoint viewer. Apart from the swinger, the texas star also rotates, do you see that?

Hey, a little updated technology fixed everything.

That Texas Star is awesome.

Thanks.

Is there a way to get it to run on it's own or do I have to hit the space bar / arrow key to get it to advance through the slides?

I just came accross this post today and had a chance to play with PPT at work for a short while (one of the perks of working at a gun store).

It is a great tool! Thank you very much for sharing it with us.

Steve, just hit F5 to launch the powerpoint. Each slide is coded with timing information to automatically advance the slide. Once it gets to the end, it restarts by itself for more dryfire time :)

Awesome idea. This should come in handy as I might need hand surgery and actually firing a weapon during recovery will probably be to painful, so dry fire will be all the training I can do.

Thanks for sharing.

Can I replace the target shapes with any other format of the IPSC Classic target?

I am not a PowerPoint wiz, so pardon the extra quastions ... how do I edit the targets on the swingers?

Ho do one buidl the moving target slides? I would like to build few bobbers, swingers moving accross a window, etc, as well ...

I like this a lot.

Tanks Robot for sharing ...

Thanks!

it's Powerpoint, so if you know how to use Powerpoint, you can edit it to your hearts content. It's just changing shapes and playing with animations.
