VirTra Announces New Threat-Fire II Simulator

August 27, 2009  | 


VirTra Systems has officially launched its newest and smallest Threat-Fire device, the Threat-Fire II. This patent-pending Threat-Fire device safely simulates the pain of hostile return fire with a 300 millisecond electric stun (adjustable to 2.5 seconds). Enemies often try to use the element of surprise and this training accessory is being used worldwide to better prepare trainees.

The Threat-Fire II is a clip-on return fire simulator, similar in function to the Threat-Fire belt; however, the Threat-Fire II is designed to clip onto an officer's duty belt for maximum efficiency. The Threat-Fire II is not only small, lightweight, and designed to be unobtrusive, but it is also rechargeable and compatible with VirTra's wireless system. VirTra contends that adding Threat-Fire to a simulator provides more realistic and thorough training, with trainees experiencing heightened nervousness and stress during the simulated situation.

"We are thrilled and excited to announce our latest Threat-Fire technology, the Threat-Fire II," says Bob Ferris, CEO and President of VirTra Systems. "Customers continue to tell us that our Threat-Fire line of return fire products has greatly increased the effectiveness of simulation training and version 2 will add a new advantage with its new and virtually undetectable size."

About VirTra Systems

The company produces firearm simulators for both law enforcement and military customers throughout the world. VirTra provides exceptional customer service and innovative technology like 360-degree HD training platforms and the Threat-Fire safe return fire system (patent pending).
