TEMPE, Ariz., July 14, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- VirTra Systems, Inc. (OTC Pink:VTSI), a leading provider of use of force simulators and firearms training simulators, today announced that it has released a new patent-pending training capability for VirTra’s simulator product line that is compatible with the TASER® X2™ conductive electrical weapon (CEW). The new device will allow officers to practice the deployment of the X2 in a simulated judgmental use of force scenario without deploying actual cartridges and with the goal of providing them increased experience and confidence with the TASER X2.
“Many of our customers utilize TASER’s world leading conductive electrical weapons and see value in compatibility between our products. Our simulator training device is incredibly similar to using the actual TASER X2,” said Bob Ferris, Chairman and CEO of VirTra. “VirTra’s innovative approach and the increasing need for realistic and affordable training products of this type justified a patent application. I’m pleased to report that the first of these new products are now shipping to an international customer.”
