ST-2 shooting simulator lets you use own gun

Marksman Training Systems' £30,000 ST-2 is touted as the first simulator for demanding shooters needing an off-field training system. Putting aside the cheesy appearance (Mad Dog McCree jokes that write themselves are forbidden forthwith from the comments) the sim incorporates a complete ballistics model, allows you to use any gun thanks to patented tracking technology, and gives detailed feedback on exactly how you managed to miss a 700lb Kodiak Bear at 8 feet with a 10 gauge shotgun. The BBC has a segment covering its use by young British sportsmen. If you want a go, the British Association for Shooting and Conservation will be touring with it throughout the autumn.

    But does it have an annoying cartoon dog that pops up and laughs at you?

    Darnit, beat me to it… though suddenly I’m inspired to enclose a working handgun inside of an NES Zapper and take it to a real shooting range.

    I so dearly wanted to photoshop that dog in, but it’s really not a video game (as they are apparently very defensive about) and didn’t want to be a dick.

    Zombie level, however, really should be mandatory. Survival is not a game.

    There’s a couple of real .22 hand guns that don’t look too far off. All you’d really need is some spray paint.

    I agree 100%, there does need to be a Zombie mode.

    Is there a Dick Cheney mode that allows you to insert pictures of your friends and family?
