What tools can we use within a reality-based training framework? Ken Murray discusses rubber guns, airsoft guns, laser beams, marking cartridges, protective gear, and well-trained role players. He also touches on what we can and cannot do with conventional munitions. Another important component to reality-based training is “Theater of the Mind”—imagining ourselves in bad situations and how we would respond.

    "Realistic-training" and the targets all stay motionless?? Really??? My targets move when I train LEO's and the military.

    I like these ideas. I have use a BB pistol in my home shooting into a large cardboard box with a target tape to it. I stuff box with old newspapers so the BB's don't come the other side.
