I bought a LaserMax at the SHOT Show a couple of years ago. The switch was never as intuitive for me as the CrimsonTrace. I loaned it to a friend who is a lefty, so the CT is a bit of an issue for him. He said the same thing, the switch wasn't what he was looking for. Same problem the new S&W Bodyguards have, the switch sucks. The revolver version is almost unusable.
