    Crimson Trace...How to make a fat Glock fatter!
    I tried the Lasermax, but found it kept being turned on by my holster. Poor switch design, but not as bad as their version for the 1911!

    Not a fan of laser sights of any kind. One more thing to become dependent on that might not work in a bad situation. My experience is that people become to reliant on laser sights. The standard Glock sights are excellent. No need to embelish the gun in an attempt to increase accuracy.

    I like the Crimson Trace lasers better since their activation is instinctual.

    I had a Crimson Trace on my G23. Didnt like it. It worked OK, but I didnt like the bulge on the grip. Plus it looked like some sort of bad scab growing on my gun.

    Well, I put the CT Lasergrips on my wife's G26. She loves it and her Glock. About six months ago, she picked one up at a local gun shop and really liked it, so I set her up with everything since I love her so much. Me? I think it's nice, and for her, I feel good and warm inside. Personally, I'm not running out to buy one for myself or to put on any of my other pistols. I prefer to do without the laser for now. If....I say if I were so inclined to have a laser for my Glock carry, it would most likely be the LaserMax internal guide rod ......thing is, as a certified Glock armorer, I don't suggest changing any parts in your Glock with anything other than OEM. That's where the CT LaserGrips work best....leaving your Glock stock.

    I have the laser grips for my G23, I can't use it because it just makes the grip a little to large, and I have to change my grip a little to fire it right. I also have a problem when I use it tracking the laser instead of keeping on target when I work on controlled pairs. All and all it's not a bad idea it gives you a good mark to shoot at, and in the event you have to draw down on a BG, you have the added intimidation factor of a laser being aimed at their dome. I would suggest if you do plan on using it, to practice with it, then take the batteries out of it and use your sights. After all it runs on batteries, and you don't want to not be able to hit what your aiming at with your sights if it comes down to a shootout.

    For civilian self-defense use the only lasers that would be good are ones that turn on as part of the draw. If you must take the time to flick a switch on before you can aim your firearm it, it is not a good thing.

    There are only three made for handguns that I know of that fit this criteria:
    Crimson Trace Grips and Laserguard; both have grip switch - Laser Sights For GLOCK Pistols | Crimson Trace Laser Grips ,
    and ArmaLaser; has finger sensing switch - GLOCK ARMALASER - Glock by ArmaLaser Inc. .

    I have Crimson Trace grips or Lasermax Sabres on all of my Glocks. I find them to be a real benefit at night or for point shooting.

    The CT grips do add more heft to the grip than I prefer, but I'd never replace the internals of a Glock for a Lasermax. Not ever.

    I fully agree with adaman04. I too agree that the CT is great for point shooting should the need arise, so that's why it's stuck like a 'bad scab' on my gun

    though I do enjoy shooting it at the range without the grips on about half the range time...
