- Mantis added a very neat training system marketed as the Mantis Laser Training Academy. The system records your shot placement and grades your shooting. The app features a number of timed and not timed, basic and advanced drills. The market release could not have been more opportune given ammunition shortages. To quote a hackneyed cliche "repetition is the mother of learning" and the Laser Academy provides a safe and fun training environment to improve your shooting skills.I'm suiting up the FNX-45 Tactical with a Vortex Optics Viper red dot. The 6 MOA dot is easily visible and ideally suited for your optics ready pistol.
