Live Role Players Deliver Realism And Unpredictability

A powerful component of our system is the performance delivered by the live role players. The reflective target creates the illusion for your officers of a face to face encounter making for a compelling training experience instead of seeking ways to game your limited video training scenarios. During our After Action Reviews, a common response from trainees when asked what are you thinking after entering the system is "This is real!"

  • "The most realistic weapons training concept I have ever experienced, both in and out of the military, is Troysgate VIKN training system. The system takes an experienced shooter to new levels of realism and proficiency for preparedness required for real-life situations. It is the final exercise for those learning how to shoot to culminate their training for self-defense."

    — Dave Grange, Brigadier General (Ret) US Army | President, Osprey Global Solutions
  • "This is the graduate level training device that will change the way we train for combat and deadly engagements. Troysgate's unique VIKN reflective target technology, when coupled with a thinking role player, presents the ultimate training/preparation situation short of actual ground combat. This device will save lives."

    — Les Fuller, Brigadier General (Ret) US Army | President, L2F Strategies and Solutions
  • "The maxim that "we fight like we train" is only too true in real life, and the Troysgate training and conditioning system, based on their unique VIKN reflective target technology, is like no other available anywhere, at any price. This is not basic marksmanship or a drill with automated dummies in a shoot house. This is a "graduate level" live fire close combat involving a real and responsive opponent in a realistic scenario tailored to what the trainee is most likely to encounter on the street or on the battlefield. I believe this training experience should be required for every military member, especially those in Special Operations, and for all law enforcement officers, intelligence service operatives and any others whose duties might lead them into a one-on-one close combat encounter. With the Troysgate experience they will be truly "combat ready" - mentally conditioned to survive a deadly encounter. Nothing else is quite like Troysgate VIKN System."

    — J. Peter McIllwain, Colonel (Ret) US Army | Independent International Intelligence and Security Consultant Former Senior Operations Officer, CIA National Clandestine Service
  • “I am deeply impressed with the approach used in the Troysgate VIKN training system. The level of realism attained is a perfect fit for what our research and authoring team learned during our yearlong research project to develop the book and free companion training videos "Staying Alive – How to Act Fast and Survive Deadly Encounters". This training approach is in harmony with what top experts like Lt. Col. Dave Grossman, Gavin de Becker, Amanda Ripley and Dr. Gary Klein and others have taught us about preparing people for high-stakes decision-making. Having survived numerous life and death encounters in my two decades as a law enforcement officer, I have seen first-hand how important evidence-based use of force training approaches can be. I am delighted to see this superb approach available to train those who must make one of the most difficult decisions any human being can be called upon to make –whether or not to take a human life in defense of self and others.”

    — Michael Dorn, Executive Director of Safe Havens International & Author of Staying Alive – How to Act Fast and Survive Deadly Encounters
  • "In combat we don't rise to the occasion we sink to our level of training, and Troysgate's VIKN System is another tool for Law Enforcement to prepare for the worst. Our SWAT Team has been through this system several times and it is the closest training to actual combat that we have ever experienced. This training not only improves the reaction time and decision making for SWAT members but also for any officer or civilian. I would recommend this training for the most experienced SWAT Officer down to the civilian that only shoots their weapon a few times a year. This is by far the best training I have seen."

    — Sheriff Coy Reid | Team Leader, Special Tactics and Response Team, Catawba County Sheriff's Office, NC
  • "The Troysgate VIKN training system is an absolute game-changer for law enforcement combat training. Never before have we been able to put our Officers through force-on-force training scenarios with such realism. Cops learn from their mistakes and their accomplishments, just like all human beings, and this system readily produces both. Because of Randy Martin's never-say-die attitude and commitment to saving the lives of the good guys, our people are better prepared for what we all know will happen."

    — R. Scott Brown | Chief of Police, Lenoir Police Department - Lenoir, NC
