MantisX

#1 Post by IYAOYAS » Thu Dec 14, 2017 7:22 am

I have created a group on MantisX's training sight called LGC (https://train.mantisx.com/groups/LGC/), it is a closed group so if you're interested in some friendly training competition please reply with your MantisX user name and I will add you to the group. Best regards, Bill

MantisX is a training aid that attaches to any gun via a 1913 rail... you can learn more about it here: https://mantisx.com/pages/how-it-works-1

Any gun that has a rail.....

Actually MantisX does sell accessories that allow guns (such as the PPS M2) that do not have a 1913 rail to use the device.

I could see this being useful, but it's a bit pricey.

As I mentioned in the LGC Members Only FB page, I posted this as a means for LGC members to have a little friendly competition. I am not affiliated with Mantis, I am just a LGC member who set up a group on Mantis for LGCers to compete with each other. I emailed LGC through FB and asked what was the best way to approach members who were interested. LGC (whoever answers that email) suggested via the forums. You people want members to volunteer and help out.... you sure don't make it easy! I certainly have better things to do, like still recovering from a hurricane. Best regards, Bill

Yeah, you Libruls suck.

I like friendly competition! But do I haz to buy mantis hardware? Hmmm... Hard for me to pay to play.

As it is, ammo and gun hardware kinda take priority.

I have a MantisX, and use it regularly. I want in on the group. Username is lokke3

With my high score, y'all have no chance!

(What do you mean it's cheating to put the MantisX on a bench rest precision rifle?)
I am not a pilot, and don't actually like flying much, but I use random generators for my online usernames, and this was the result
