There is no universal application for gun owners that aims to teach the user how to handle these weapons safely. However, for us caring about our user’s safety is a priority. After downloading, our app's work begins with an OBLIGATORY on-boarding (instruction), where each weapon owner gets acquainted with 13 firearms handling rules and confirms that they have understood all of them. Without this, the user cannot start training. Before each app lesson, we repeat the safety rules. We also have a series of push notifications, reminding you of individual safety rules throughout the day and encouraging users not to forget them. But the most important thing you should remember is that when picking up a weapon, you are fully responsible for its use. The instructor is your controller and assistant, and our Drill app is an assistant and a tool, allowing you to become a more proficient and skilled user.
Training at home using combat weapons is NOT RECOMMENDED. It is better to use mass-dimensional training hardware for training at home or in places not intended for combat weapons. In case of any manipulations with weapons, we advise you to visit a licensed shooting range, take classes with a professional trainer, and follow the safety rules "link."
It is recommended to have dummy rounds and weapons. This will increase the level of safety regardless of the training site.
Our app is designed to be useful for all, a civilian who has recently bought a weapon and a special appointee, military man, athlete, airsofter, or police officer. Regardless of who you are and what your level of weapon proficiency is, you will not be able to be in good shape without constant training. Our app will help you save time and money, and trips to the shooting range will be the final stage to consolidate the material learned in Drill.
In the "dry" course, all exercises and training sessions are designed for training without using ammunition and shooting. The “basic" course contains exercises on the use of ammunition and practicing the implementation of shooting with combat weapons.
All "dry" courses in our app are free of charge. This is explicitly designed to introduce users to our app.
In the nearest future, we plan to add lessons with a rifle based on AR 15. They will appear in the basic rifle course. We also plan to add lessons in self-defense, indoor and short distances work, in-the-car work, self-defense for women, home protection, Concealed carry course, CQB course, Ambush reaction course, and other advanced areas.
Now we have the app translated into 5 languages: Ukrainian, English, Polish, Russian, and Spanish. We are planning to add German, Hebrew, and Portuguese.
The course "dry gun" and "dry carbine" is free of charge. You can purchase separately only "tasks." They are not included in the courses but are presented as separate items.
You can start training with the weapon's mass-dimensional training hardware. Train the correct grip, take-out, and aiming practice. This will give you basic skills and allow you to develop the foundation.
Please send your suggestions to our email.
We are convinced that no app can replace an instructor, so we recommend that you should first work out with an instructor in a specially equipped place and use our app to practice and improve your shooting skills.
Who needs Drill
Drill is a unique mobile application for training in tactical shooting and self-defense. It’s a virtual personal trainer, like shooting instructor courses — convenient to use anytime and anywhere: trenches, shooting range, at home. Drill is always in your pocket, somewhere in between a fitness and an educational application.
Drill app is suitable for:
Note: residents of Ukraine and combatants will be able to use the application for free until the war ends.
What is unique about Drill?
Currently, there is no universal app in the whole world, that would teach gun owners safety precautions, proper weapons handling and help to improve shooting skills. People have to seek shooting instructor courses. But let’s also think about professionals such as security services, police and the military — they all need daily exercise.
Although, there are several related apps, but they are all customized to suit very particular tasks, cost $100-200 and are made as complex devices, calculators, timers or statue books. And they certainly do not provide the skill of an experienced instructor shooting qualification.
That is why the Drill project was born.
Before that, we gathered focus groups among professionals, athletes, military, find a shooting instructors in different parts of the world. We conducted a survey of focus groups and checked the market research. Therefore, we are confident in the practical necessity of our application.
Ukrainian and international experts — active military, athletes and representatives of security organizations — were involved in the creation and testing of Drill. All exercises are developed on the basis of many years of experience of participation of experts in real combat operations with the use of weapons and in shooting sports competitions.
TOP-7 best features of Drill
The application is already available in the App Store and Google Play. There are three main languages: Ukrainian, English and Russian. Soon four more languages will be added — English, German, French and Spanish.
What Drill includes
Currently, the app has two main courses with virtual training on pistol and carbine (AR15/AK74):
All of them are formed into seven lessons, have different levels of difficulty and are suitable for training professional military, people who wants to know how to become a shooting instructor, police, athletes, civilians. Users of the application can also create their own training program with the ability to select exercises and lessons based on personal goals, track progress and receive live feedback from professional instructors.
Extreme functionality of Drill
In the nearest future, we expand the list of weapons available for virtual training in Drill, as well as add new programs and individual exercises. In addition, Drill developers are already working on a unique functionality at the intersection of computer vision and machine learning, which will allow shooters to track the progress of training and receive online feedback from shooting instructor.
“Our aim for the next three years is to turn Drill into a multi-platform universal tool giving access guns’ owners to special information. We are focused on a powerful expansion to the markets of the United States, Mexico, Brazil and the European Union”, — says the project founder Oleksandr Gusarov.
Drill is very promising
Currently, experts note the growing popularity of extreme sports in the whole world, including practical shooting. Thus, the gradual increase in the number of gun owners supports the growth of global sales. It is expected that by the end of 2030 the market of private firearms and related areas, including tactical shooting, accessories and applications will exceed 38.6 billion US dollars!
Did you know that
…more than one billion small arms are distributed in the world;
… 857 million (about 85 percent) belongs to civilians;
… in the United States alone, there are 326 million registered firearms in private ownership;
… according to BusinesStat, in 2019 the global market for private firearms and related areas brought $ 8.37 billion and will grow by an average of 3.51% per year.
