Sporting shooters in the UK will now be able to sharpen their skills with the same state-of-the-art shooting simulator that the Russian and Slovakian Olympic shooting teams are using ahead of the Beijing Games this year.
The system has been brought to the UK through an exclusive partnership between the Swedish company Marksman Training Systems and the British Association for Shooting and Conservation (BASC).
The ST-2 covers a range of rifle and shotgun disciplines with realistic animations and scenarios to help everyone hone their skills. The diagnostics can identify several common shooting faults and provide instant feedback on why or where you missed or hit the target.
BASC will be demonstrating the ST-2 at a number of events throughout the year, including seminars, Young Shots days, game fairs and improve-your-shooting days. BASC will also help Marksman Training Systems develop their ST-2 with innovative hardware and software for the UK market.
Director of shooting standards, Dr Peter Marshall said: "This is the most advanced shooting simulator on the market and I believe through our exclusive partnership with Marksman Training systems, it can help to improve our members' skills and their enjoyment of their chosen sports."
