Has anyone actually used this as a training aid? Would you say it was helpful? I'm gonna get my friend to try it, he shoots long guns fine but can't hit anything with a pistol.

It's been helpful to me, and I've shared it with newbie bullseye shooters who've also found it helpful. It's by no means a cure-all, but any help is better than none, especially when one's hitting everything but the ten ring and can't figure out a way to improve one's scores.

"Has anyone actually used this as a training aid?"
Just a couple million U.S. Soldiers and Marines for starters. I should point out that this is a training aid, not a substitute for training. It is understandable that a good rifleman may have problems with a handgun. Just as he had to learn to shoot the rifle, he now has a different tool he needs to learn how to use. The wheel is useful in telling what you are doing wrong but it doesn't teach you to shoot correctly. You need instruction on the basics followed by range time with a coach who will stand behind you and watch you shoot, then make corrections as needed.

It's most helpful if you are consistently making the same mistake. If you are inconsistent in your grouping a good coach is a better answer.
