Abstract : The patent application relates to an arrangement and association of elements which includes a display screen of photochromic material which, when actuated by an illuminator producing a defined wave length beam and aimed with the weapon, produces a hit spot on the target which will retain its condition to permit visual observation and evaluation. This feature is combined with a motorized projector which can be stopped to maintain the film in the frame at which the hit would have occurred if the situation was real firing in the field.
