MotoShot Training Robots And Low Light Discretionary Shooting
Shield Solutions provides continuing training for multiple southern Missouri law enforcement agencies. This month’s training, we focused on low light discretionary shooting with shoot, don’t shoot targets. In this scenario, officers had to activate their hand-held light or weapon-mounted light and neutralize the threat amongst multiple innocent targets (steel targets). Using the MotoShot remote control system, we were able to recreate a more realistic scenario and force the officers to work their angles to get their hits on target without hitting any of the multiple innocent (steel targets). If officers hit one of the innocents (steel targets) we immediately heard the report from the sound of the steel being hit. Discretionary shooting in low light conditions while using the MotoShot System was incredibly challenging and proved to be realistic and quality training for these officers. In real life, targets move, so in training, we need to be training in real-life scenarios.
