CoolFire Allows Real Firearm Training Without Bullets


AC: Hey guys, we’re at the 2017 SHOT Show in the CoolFire booth with Ján. He is the Marketing Director for this awesome new product. Can you tell me a little bit about this? JS: This is a real gun – YOUR gun – converted to do THIS… And here’s how it works This is a replacement barrel with a laser up front that you can hit laser targets with. It takes CO2 gas. And here is a telescoping piston that generates the recoil. AC: How many shots per charge can you get with just one fill? JS: Between 15 and 25, sometimes more. It depends on the gun, it depends on how much (CO2) gas you have left. But typically more than you have rounds in the magazine for that particular weapon. AC: Now, is there any maintenance required with this? JS: Yes. This is designed to give you a great training experience for several thousand rounds. After that, this little stainless steel piece is going to need replacing. Because that is the contact point of your firing pin, and we made it out of a relatively soft material to protect your firing pin for as long as possible. AC: I can see this being a really great, useful tool in any kind of training. Practicing your recoil, holding it, and everything. I really want to have one of these so I can just shoot off my couch at home! But I want to know what you guys think. Tell us in the comments.

  2. I just got mine via FedEx yesterday. Installed in today, and I'm going to order three or four laser targets tomorrow. It's a lot of fun and, even if the recoil isn't the same as a 9mm, I can see where it will help with trigger control, and target acquisition. However, the cat was killed several times today, every photo/artwork in the house was shot, and the ringing telephone sustained MAJOR damage a couple of times. I love it…my wife is kinda "done with it" already!

  3. oooooooooooooover priced BS, if you ACTUALLY included a BARREL that was worth a shit other than in your living room I could see the 400 Buck price tag, Just scumbags…
