Mantis Laser Academy
With guided drills and real-time feedback, Laser Academy allows you to have a training facility at home and at your convenience. Get quality reps with your own equipment and experience a higher level of dry fire training with positive results you can see and feel. Laser Academy’s variety of drill options also keep things fresh for shooters, making practice feel more like a game and less like a chore.
The Laser Academy system utilizes a laser training cartridge that drops into the chamber of your firearm, delivering a laser beam down the barrel every time the firing pin strikes the round. Using physical targets, these laser “shots” are read by your phone or tablet and scored accordingly, per mode. The simplicity of the setup is what provides the flexibility for when and where you can practice.
Four training modes are included with the free version of the Laser Academy app. The Laser Academy kits includes an activation code that will unlock the remaining training modes:
The full access activation code included with the Laser Academy kit provides access to additional training options:

Notes regarding the laser cartridge: To prevent damage to the o-rings, a very thin coat of oil should be applied to each o-ring. Reapply as needed.

North Star Defense LLC is an idea that was born from our experiences with our own conceal carry classes we sat through. We felt this genre really needed change. We want to get our communities and anyone else involved in firearm safety and self defense. It is not enough just to have the right to bear arms, one also must have the knowledge and training to go with that right. We are all responsible for every round that we shoot.
We love teaching and helping people learn how to better themselves. Whether it is just getting that pattern brought in on a target or how to simply clean a gun, we want to do what we can to help you learn. Most instructors focus on the military/tactical aspect of firearms and firearms training. While we do deal with that, we also specialize in helping every day people feel comfortable using their gun. We will help you learn not only how to shoot, but how to clean and maintain your firearms. We also teach you how to store it, how to carry it, and even how to draw from a holster. We want to be the place you come for ALL of your training needs. You will find that we will take time to figure out what is actually best for YOU, not what we think is best for you.
