Point Blank Simulator - You Virtual Home Range

Point Blank Laser Shooting Simulator for Home and Commercial Use

Keeping up your firearms training at your home is now very easy and affordable with the new Point Blank Simulator. We have been working with the creators of this unique platform for over a year, testing it and we can fully recommend it to everyone who wants's to keep up with pistol or rifle training at home, practise before going to the range and have fun. We all know that going to the live range it's expensive and in some countries such as uk training with semi-auto pistols and rifles is prohibited. Point Blank Simulator offers a solution for that problem. All you need is a camera which is supplied in the setup, laser pistols such as SIRT or conversion for an airsoft pistol/rifle, TV or projector and you are set to start practising your shooting skills at home in a safe environment. If you want to make your experience more realistic and interactive we do recommend buying XBOX Kinect 2.0.


 We focused our efforts on infrastructure not marketing BS, shareholder fluffing or committee appeasement and the difference in outcome is remarkable.

PBS is built on a Service Oriented Architecture designed to generate content faster than most companies can produce an active human response from customer service.  We update and distribute content near instantaneously, providing the most recent data.  Our shot detection system is twice the frame rate and nearly 4x the frame size of industry-standard systems. We sample over a million pixels per frame, over 250 million sampled pixels per second to ensure the greatest accuracy possible while being interoperable with other platforms and supporting open market standards with every tier and component of our platform.


Point Blank Simulator is a virtual training platform for firearms fundamentals.

Existing players in the market include LaserAmmo, LaserShot, Meggitt, VirTra, MILO (Smart Simulators) covering multiple tiers from home and commercial use to Law Enforcement and Military.

Market research showed 3 consistent complaints about existing systems.


Consumer systems starting at £10-15K Mil/LEO procurement starting £100-150K


3D modules are limited functionality in the hundreds of dollars range, video content in the thousands of dollars range.


Poor quality graphics on very old gaming technology or jittery video splicing.



– training (enabled) firearm
– computer to run the application for every 60 degrees viewing angle
– projector and screen/surface
– shot detection camera & software



Point Blank Simulator can work as a “plugin” for other training platforms like Sim Range or Smokeless Range or as a standalone application with our USB 2 or USB 3.1 cameras and shot detection software. The USB 2 shot detection software is available for all range instance accounts and will work with any USB 2 camera that has a switchable 700nm IR long-pass filter. The Point Blank Simulator USB 2 camera is £175

The Point Blank Simulator range application requires a modern gaming PC running Windows 8.2 or higher.



Other platforms distribute content in pre-compiled packages that need to be downloaded and installed individually. Point Blank Simulator is a series of training environments that allow the user to dynamically load courses of fire into those environments.

We have a warm-up area consisting of a single static target placeable from 3-300m and a dynamic target area that allows the user to adjust multiple parameters for 1-10 targets from size to movement speed and presentation time.


We currently have several content streams:

– Competition (IPSC with more to come)
– Drills (repeated courses of fire)
– Plinking (entertainment shooting)

Our content model allows us to generate and modify content without having to update the base platform while still allowing us to filter access depending on the user role or organization. Additional courses of fire are added to our standard and premium streams and user-generated content from our course editor can be consumed into the system. We have a pipeline set up to import course definitions from Sketch Up, which is commonly used for course diagrams.



Existing platforms “run on rails” automatically advancing the shooter rather than requiring the shooter to make a discernment that the area is clear before proceeding to the next firing position. Shooters are able to review their course of fire and see where their rounds landed.

Shooters are able to initiate the movement by a number of different mechanisms from keyboard to a game controller to pressure switches.

The Point Blank Simulator Gesture Egress Transition Model (GETMO) motion capture system uses off the shelf hardware from Xbox Kinect (2+) or other point cloud systems ranging between £150-400.


Being data-driven not only gives us a more flexible and cost-effective content platform than anything else on the market, but it also allows us to things like feed real load data into our ammunition definitions and capture shooter data like the firearm used, it’s ready condition and the shooter’s starring position.

We anticipated the need for serious shooters to manage their training data. Without data, there is no clear record of how a shooter is performing over time. With Point Blank Simulator you don’t just have data for the last 100 shots, every shot the shooter takes is recorded with multiple ways to view your shot data from score summaries and visualizations to a shot timeline for each course of fire and allowing comparison between courses of fire.

Timelines allow the shooter to see a high-level summary of course of fire showing the target score zone for each shot and allows the user to zoom in to see split & elapsed times, target score along with MantisX data (when available).


Here is a break down for the minimum price and maximum price you can expect to pay, to use the Point Blank Simulator as a Personal / Home User.  Lower down the page, we will give you a link for recommendations for hardware so you can make an educated estimate on what it will cost you to get you up and running with Point Blank Simulator.

We at PBS don’t believe in hiding costs, unlike others, who suck you in with their website, for you to then find out that the cost for a single range is the price of a house.  Our range and pricing is totally transparent, the way it should be, and we believe you will be surprised at how much you get for your money.
