PDN viewers are familiar with the SIRT (Shot Indicating Resetting Trigger) Training Pistol, but did you know a subcompact model is now available? Mike Hughes of Next Level Training tells us more about the SIRT PP Training Pistol.

SIRT Pocket Pistol Model

If your everyday carry pistol is a subcompact, the SIRT PP Training Pistol (Pocket Pistol Model) will be a better match for your gun than the full-size SIRT pistol. One of the goals with a training pistol is to mimic the feel of your actual gun, and if your concealed carry pistol is a subcompact single-stack, the SIRT PP does just that.

What It Does

The SIRT PP compact training pistol fits into the holster of your single-stack subcompact pistol, and it feels like your concealed carry pistol.

The baseplates of subcompact pistols differ from model to model, and the SIRT PP reflects this, offering a choice of a longer, straight extension that works well with the Smith & Wesson M&P Shield; a curved extension that mimics the Glock 43; and a flat baseplate similar to the one on the Springfield Armory XD-S.

Next Level’s research showed that the feel of the baseplate contributed the most to the specific feel of each subcompact gun, so you get the most transferability to handgun training and practice with your particular carry gun due to the choice of baseplates.

What It Doesn’t Do

The SIRT PP compact training pistol does not have a removable magazine, so you can’t practice magazine changes. The reason for this is that every compact handgun has its own reloading idiosyncrasies, so it would have been impossible to replicate them all with the SIRT.


Safe, effective, and innovative, the Shot Indicating Resetting Trigger (SIRT) Training Pistol was developed by shooters for shooters, to complement, not replace, live fire training. The SIRT Training Pistol brings together a host of patent pending technologies critical to improving shooting accuracy while addressing issues of cost and liability. Each SIRT compact training pistol contains the following: one SIRT Training Pistol, one Base Extension, a Trigger Adjustment Tool, and a Laser Windage and Elevation Adjustment Tool.

    Does this SIRT pistol have a baseplate that would be similar to a P365 with an extended magazine ? Secondly, are the guns weighted to simulate a full magazine ? Thanks
