Quick Draw Targeting System
DURANGO KIDTM INDOOR TARGET/TIMER
QUICK DRAW TARGETING SYSTEM
Quick Draw Targeting System is designed to allow shooters to practice
Cowboy Quick Draw indoors without noise or the smoke and odor of spent
primers. This system has two major components: the target/display unit
and the Single Action Revolver Conversion Kit. With the conversion kit
installed, the revolver "fires" a very brief pulse of light whenever the
hammer falls. The target/display unit detects this pulse and then
displays the shooter's time. This system does NOT use lasers and is
The target/display unit, as the name
implies, is both a target and a timer for a single user. It has two LED
stage-draw indicators, a receiver to detect the incoming pulse of
light, and a 4-digit LED display of the shooter's time, all in one small
enclosure. It can detect the incoming light pulse from 20 feet away,
and is powered by a plug-in AC adapter. Even thought the target is
small, the light pulse is just wide enough so that the accuracy required
to hit the target is comparable to that required to hit a 24" target
with wax bullets.
The Single Action Revolver Conversion Kits are
designed for each specific manufacturer of revolver and each caliber.
These kits consist of a replacement cylinder, a battery and an
insertion/extraction tool. The cylinder contains the circuitry to sense
the fall of the hammer and to generate the pulse of light. The
replacement cylinder weights about 2 oz. less than the regular
cylinder. The conversion is not permanent; the original cylinder can be
re-inserted whenever desired.
Single Action Revolver conversion
kits are currently available for the following manufacturers and models:
Pietta (Californian) / Colt, Ruger (Vaquero), and Beretta (Stampede) at
the present time.
