A realistic laser weapon simulator is disclosed which utilizes a laser transmitter in combination with a rifle for teaching marksmanship by firing laser "bullets" at an infrared detector equipped target. The laser weapon includes a piezoelectric crystal coupled to a laser in a housing for mounting axially to a rifle barrel. The rifle may develope a mechanical force by firing a blank cartridge which generates a shock wave and vibrates the piezoelectric device. A mechanical force may also be applied directly to the piezoelectric device by the rifle's hammer.
