So Iím getting old and my vision has deteriorated just enough I need glasses for reading and shooting.
I went with my wife to test her new 422 with the Crimson Trace Laser last year, and Iíd left my glasses at home. Iíve never paid much attention to lasers, but thanks to being ďblind,Ē I learned an excellent lesson.
It was darn easy to punch a hole from ten yards. I moved the target all the way to 25 yards, aimed some 10 inches off the X to 10 oíclock and kept on shooting a group reload after reload. I tried with my weak hand only, and to group still was one ragged hole. The laser run around like a crazy drunken monkey, but the gun (this is a J-frame) was accurate with proper trigger control.
I do not mind losing my sight anymore; the laser can compensate a lot. Iím thinking installing one to my main carry 1911, 640 and G26.
Anyone else in love with lasers?
