    I have Crimson Trace grip on my Kahr Mk40. I thought about them for my G30, but honestly, they just look dumb on Glock's. I like how on the Kahr's, Beretta's, 1911's, ect with bolt on grips they're not as obvious. Where as a Glock, I think they just look stupid. Maybe that's a dumb reason for not having them on the Glock, but whatever :) If they could make one that's more like the Houge grip I have on my G30 now (and Hk), I'd defiantly get it!

    Laserlyte has you covered on the Glock. I wish I had these for my Kahrs.

    - They definitely are less obtrusive than the CT grips, but the activation is nowhere near as useful as the CT lasers.

    I think they are a good idea but there are many other things I would rather spend that amount of money on.

    Bought the CTs for my Glock 23. Removed them and sold them. IMO they SUCK on a Glock. They make the grip feel awful to me.

    When I gave opinion on lasers on another forum it was pointed out that they can have a lot of value as a training aid and I can see that.

    Be that as it may, in my view nothing says novice, newby, or neophyte like a laser equipped handgun. Perhaps it is human nature to attempt to find a way to purchase skill in the form of a gadget but it is a poor substitute. It is realized that some law enforcement agencies, military units, and savvy individual shooters make professional use of lasers.

    They are fun to play around with but I would avoid them on an serious self-defense handgun.

    I have Crimson Trace lasers on 10 carry guns, I find them to be force multipliers with more positive than negative attributes.

    I had a Walther P22 that had a laser that came with it. It was very fun at the range. But I don't see me getting a laser for my carry guns. Maybe when I have the money to get a dedicated HD gun I'll get a TLR2 or something to that effect that has a light and laser combo.

    I like lasers, and I've been involved with things that go "bang" and "BOOM" since 1987...how long before you're not a n00b?

    Agree with you that lasers are not a substitute for training. That said, you should really read some of the feedback from people who have actually used them in hostile situations. You might change your mind...

    My dad has one of these for his G19. It's pretty nice. But I like the idea of the grips. Being engaged when you simply grip the gun. And the CT grips do have an off switch, so you're not stuck with the laser.

    I see the adavantage of lasers, but I am not a fan on an EDC. I've shot with them and have seen people in classes with them, but have not seen the need to change.

    At the range I see no need. It's kind of just a fun toy at the range, unless you have eye sight problems focusing on the front sight, like my dad :p

    I like it for EDC for the point and aim aspect. No need to line up the sights. Shoot from the hip, shoot while running away, etc.
