A newly developed shooting website is being offered at
www.eurosimulator.com that allows
shooters of various disciplines and skill sets to realistically develop and
challenge their abilities. Created by Erik Dahlberg from Denmark and
supported by FirearmsID.com Webmaster J. Scott Doyle, the Eurosimulator is
unique in that it offers a free, fun, challenging and educational method to
learning fundamentals of shooting through a gaming media. Eurosimulator
currently offers seven lanes for shooting rifle, semi-automatic pistol, and
Basic rifle is a ten-round string shot on a simulated indoor range
at 15-meters using a tradition aperture sights. Advanced rifle is shot in
similar conditions but requires the shooter to learn how a real rifle
behaves under realistic circumstances.
Basic pistol is a
ten-round string fired on a simulated indoor range at 15-meters. Once a shot
has been fired, a telescopic view shows the point of impact. Scores appear
on the board to the right. Advanced pistol increases the shots fired to 30
and requires the shooter to learn how a real pistol behaves under realistic
circumstances. Advanced Pistol Outdoors is a new program that puts the
shooter against outdoor conditions at 25-meters. Once a shot has been fired,
the shooter is read shot placement and their score through an electronic
target scoring system growing in popularity throughout the world.
Basic revolver is offered in both outdoor and indoor simulation.
The 15-meter lane indoor simulator allows a shooter to fire 6 rounds for
record. After each shot, a telescopic view shows the point of impact on
target with scores appearing to the right. The outdoor simulator places the
shooter randomly 20-90 meters away from steel, reactive targets. Field
practice with a six-shot revolver can be shot with various backdrops.
“The basic [idea] in my theory for making these lanes was that
instructors could actually see how the shooter aimed, thereby making the
necessary adjustments fire a good round.” It’s been three years since Erik
Dahlberg launched this program, a website every shooter should take
