laser tag guns Buyer’s Guide
Laser X Two Player System
The vest sits comfortably on the chest and doesn’t move around even during intense matches. It is designed to fit a wide range of players from ages up. Even as an adult, the vest is comfortable to wear even for an extended period of time. The hit registers are accurate and the colored sensor keeps you always in the know for your remaining hit points.
The blaster has a small speaker on the back that emits game sounds. There is a constant beep during play. This beep is good to keep people from camping, but it cannot be turned off. It is a bit obnoxious after a while. If you don’t want the sound, it would be nice to disable it. Also the reload requires you to hold the trigger and shake the blaster. This isn’t as responsive as a dedicated reload button like most other home laser tag sets feature.
What We Liked
The Laser X system is a simple, yet effective laser tag set. The quality of the physical product and the accuracy of the blaster/vests makes for some great games. For the value, this is an easy product to recommend.
The Dynasty Toys Laser Tag Set and Carrying Case for Kids is the most expensive of the laser tag sets that we considered. The kit includes four different colored guns and a handsome carrying case that adds a professional touch to this childhood game. Bringing your laser guns in this traveler will certainly impress the other kids playing the game.
Each laser gun has options to change the gun setting to pistol, shotgun, submachine gun, or missile launcher. Each setting has a different range and impact on the health of those shot. Players can choose a team and a gun to get started. The laser gun tracks the player’s health with lights on the side of it. Each of the three lights equals three lives or hits.
The laser guns emit non-visible, infrared light that will not require eye protection for anyone playing. Your children will not need to wear a vest either as the blaster acts as the target with a built-in sensor. The variable in gameplay is the real selling point. And the fact that it comes with four laser guns means the game is on as soon as you load the four AA batteries in each one.
The Dynasty Toys Laser Tag Set was the only product that specifically stated it was certified child safe Class laser product. We liked the assurance that the company is dedicated to producing a quality product. We were also impressed with the reviews touting the superior customer service that buyers received. That is a great testament to a product’s value.
The biggest disadvantage is the price. But when you consider the cost of getting two more laser guns, it is not a bad deal to buy them all up front. The laser guns play realistic sounds that vary with the gun setting. They will also vibrate when the user shoots the gun or gets shot. While that makes for an exciting game, parents are advised that there is no volume control on the sound.
It’s not as loud as a real gun. But it may put a limit on how late into the night you should consider letting your kids play laser tag. Each gun takes four AA batteries which will certainly add up over time. We strongly recommend keeping a good supply on hand to make sure that the game can continue without interruption.
What We Liked: We loved the fact that it comes in a four-pack set. Everyone can start playing right away without having to search for friends who have compatible laser tag guns. We also liked the carrying case to keep the guns together (hopefully!) and protect them between uses.

Save Time and Ammunition
While a bore sighter does NOT give you the perfect shot when targeting, it does boost the precision and accuracy when shooting. That way, you improve your skills as a hunter and will have an increased chance of capturing your game. It gets your gun on target and makes shooting more gun.
You will also have an easier time zeroing your firearm. While it doesn’t align it to a true zero, using a laser bore sighter is easier than others and quicker. It is compatible with a variety of firearms, so you can use it with multiple guns rather than purchasing one per gun.
As much as possible you want something that lasts for at least a whole hunting session, which is usually a day. The better and longer-lasting battery life, the more it should be added to your list of must-buys for hunting! The battery should also be easily found and replaced if ever it does run out. Or, the charger should be compatible with outlets in your area.
You will want a bore sighter that you can easily mount or install to your gun, and something that will last long with quality materials built to stay intact and to work excellently for years.
The laser beam must be bright enough to be seen in both day and night times, as well as an easy and simple scope adjustment.
So what can you expect in startup costs for your potential new indoor laser tag business? Here’s a general reference guide on initial investment costs for an indoor laser tag arena.
Of course these costs will vary depending on your specific situation, so use this as a general information starting point in your research.
Indoor Laser Tag
The arena is the actual laser tag play area with obstacles to hide behind and in, lights, music, sound effects and base stations. Most laser tag phaser manufacturers also manufacturer these arena props. The price of arena props is usually determined by the prop functions you choose and the amount of props you need to buy. Most manufacturers price out their packages using a price per square foot model. This price is usually adjustable based on whether they send someone to install the props for you or you install the props yourself. The look and feel of your laser tag arena is just as important as the look and feel of your phasers. Keep this in mind when doing your research and choose both wisely.
