OutWest Systems Adds Shot Timer to Marksmanship Training System

Colorado Springs, Colo., April 30, 2013 – OutWest Systems, Inc. today announced the addition of a programmable shot timer to its Optical Computer- Aided Training (OCAT) System. The timer helps sportsmen, professionals and competitive shooters improve their firearm reaction time.

“Our customers requested a programmable shot timer capability,” said Paul Weissler, President and CEO of OutWest Systems. “They wanted to significantly improve their ‘reaction to shot fired’ time and our new, programmable shot timer will help them do just that.”

The OCAT System is an affordable marksmanship training system that helps shooters quickly improve their marksmanship skills. The system, which works in laser mode and live fire mode, provides instant feedback and in-depth analysis of every shot fired. It’s like having a spotter and a coach available at any time and at any place.

The OCAT System programmable shot timer:

  • features one-button click capability for counting up or counting down;
  • supports single or multiple players;
  • includes standard and custom start and stop audio sounds;
  • displays minutes and seconds;
  • displays the total number of hits per shooting session;
  • includes programmable fixed and variable start delays;
  • features a programmable stop time (based on number of seconds and/or the number of hits); and
  • automatically loops for a set (programmable) number of time.

“The new shot timer, together with the system’s laser mode, is a great way for customers to improve their shooting skills without the need for live ammunition,” said Jim Cline, Vice President and COO of OutWest Systems. “The integrated analyzer, another standard feature on OCAT systems, provides additional insight into shooting performance.”

The OCAT System with programmable shot timer is available in four standard configurations—the Basic System Kit, Standard System Kit, Deluxe System Kit, and Laser System Kit. The systems, together with free upgrade for existing customers, are available online at and through OutWest System partners at
