Abstract : A markmanship training device is disclosed for simulating long range weapons so as to train a marksman in the use of the particular weapon being simulated. The marksmanship training device comprises a laser transmitter mounted within the weapon being simulated which, when activated by the marksman, broadcasts at a target a square wave beam of laser light having a predetermined frequency. A receiver, mounted upon the target, will sense only a square wave laser light beam having the predetermined frequency mentioned above and activate a buzzer so as to indicate that the marksman has scored a hit upon the target.
