Malfunctions and In/Out Battery Reloading

Malfunctions and In/Out Battery Reloading

Most police officers today are familiar with firearm malfunctions and in/out of battery reloading. My concern as an instructor was that officers were not under pressure in many of these drills.

MotoShot can advance on the student as he or she moves to a position of cover or concealment while at the same time reloading their weapon, clearing the malfunction, or firing at the threat.

MotoShot can be equipped to react to firearm rounds, pepper spray, and electronic stun devices allowing the student to enlist multiple control measures. Additionally, MotoShot has a new auto-reset feature that allows for resetting the robot, thereby saving time, allowing the scenario to continue uninterrupted.
