    I posted a thread about my 'military adventure' class at San Diego State a few months back...since then we have rappelled off of the 5 story library and have done an O course twice. right now, we are using a virtual shooting range over at MCAS Miramar and it is pretty cool. I was wondering who here has got to use a system like it and what were your thoughts? up until this point we have been using the M16 but this friday we get to use the 50cal, saw, golf, an at4 simulators. for any civilian military buffs like me out there, this class is a wet dream :wiggle: ...i recommend it to anyone at SDSU if it is continued next semester

    We use it at my unit fairly often. Good way to train, and do some cool scenarios.

    we just spent $35k to install it on our sub-base. all in all, i would rather be firing my rifle on a range.

    I take it we're talking about the ISMT (or whatever it's called)? We got to use it in boot and uhhh..... can't remember what it was called, too many damn acronyms. But now, we (at least where I am) need to have current orders to the range to use it. Another one of those little things that makes no sense whatsoever.

    It's nice to have, when it actually works right.

    I used one at Benning a few times. It's kinda cool being able to plug in any range the army uses with the push of a button, but the system itself was kinda buggy.
