The MantisX is a breakthrough tech product that helps you train more efficiently. While attached to your firearm, it continuously collects movement data before, during, and after each shot, providing real-time feedback on your shooting mechanics. The sensor connects via Bluetooth LE to any iOS or Android device, and complex algorithms analyze movement patterns. MantisX is designed for your firearm, for use in both live fire and dry fire shooting.

So there's an app that you download, and it allows you to see the movement pattern for each shot. It's super useful at the range to see how bad you are flinching and in what direction. Before I go the range I try to do some dry shooting while I watch TV, and the mantis scores each shot based on how much movement there is during the trigger pull. While doing dry fire I have pretty good scores. Then I go to the range and my scores drop by about 10 points. It's awesome because you can see exactly how you are moving the gun, if you are flinching, in what direction, or if there is anything else wrong with your shooting mechanics. Anyway, it's a super neat device, and I think everyone should try one of these out, even just once, to see how bad they really are (I used to think I was pretty descent).
I was a little worried it wouldn't fit on my Walther, because the rail is a little small. But you can actually mount the device backwards, and there is a setting in the app to account for that (see the photo). These guys thought of everything.
5 stars because it also came in a Pelican case!
The Story: My favorite pistol is Springfield XDM 3.8" Compact. Bought it, shot it, love it. I can't miss with it. I hit everything at the range. So I decided to buy the little brother to carry: the Springfield XDS. Took it to the range and couldn't hit a thing. Wanted to throw the stupid thing at the big metal targets. Buddy had a Mantis, so I borrowed it, put it on my gun. Ten shots later, the app on my phone tells me that I'm slapping the trigger. What the what? Oh, and then it tells me what that is, and how to PROPERLY pull the trigger. All my years of shootin', thinking I was the bomb diggity, knew what I was doing....turns out I don't. I'm betting most of you don't either. Which is why you need to get one of these. Right now.
A few sessions of practice, and I'm now shooting my XDS as well as my XDM (and shooting my XDM even better). This thing coaches me the whole way, watching me like my mother-in-law at Thanksgiving dinner, telling me how well I'm doing, what needs fixin'. Very helpful, not naggy at all. Like a gun instructor in my pocket, like the guy at the gun show said. Love this thing. 150 bucks?! Are you kidding me? That's it for this piece of wizardry? Acceleronometers and gyroscopies and bluetooth signals and other technical stuff I don't understand, but one thing I do understand is putting holes in things, and this has helped me put the holes right where I intend to. The end. Happily ever after. Get two. One to loan to all your buddies who will love you and then go buy their own.
As noted by a previous reviewer, the MantisX no longer comes with the small Pelican case, and now includes a small molded foam case instead. The foam case is neither crushproof nor waterproof, but it is more than sufficient to protect the MantisX. On the positive side, it now includes a second bolt with a knurled knob for attaching it to the rail of your weapon. This bolt eliminates the need for a screwdriver, though it will interfere with a holster.
1/28/18 Update: After three days of dry-fire practice with the MantisX, I have for the first time been able to hold all rounds of a 50-shot string in the center mass of a USPSA silhouette target at 10 yards with my H&K USP 40. It's my favorite handgun, but I've found it frustratingly difficult to shoot consistently well. That result by itself makes the purchase of the MantisX worthwhile for me.
2/16/18 Update: Yesterday I had a 20-shot group that was smaller than a golf ball at 7.5 yards. If you had told me six weeks ago that I'd be able to do that with my USP, I would have called you crazy.
