    Meh...I don't think CT has too much to worry about. Their instinctive, automatic activation by simply gripping the gun normally just can't be beat. I've used other lasers, but feel the CT system is the best.

    You are correct in that the CT's instinctive laser activation is hard to beat, but this gives some users that have holsters that do not fit the Crimson Trace another option to have a laser. God Bless

    Thanks for the info, but not interested in that 1 for my LCP.

    My CT laser has forced me to waste two holsters that I had purchased BEFORE I added the CT. So much for thinking ahead!

    the placement of the laser has you to place your trigger finger across the trigger guard--often cited as the cause of unintended discharges during re holstering. if you place your finger pointed up and along the slide ( the safe way) you block the laser. besides being less safe, this way of holding may cross over to other guns you handle.
    glocks use of the rear sight for the laser is the best yet.

    Decend idea but I won't trade the CT on my LCP for one. I might consider it if I didn't have a laser on the LCP already though.

    If I have to draw and shoot, I dont want to have to think about pushing a button first. No thanks, might be good for range practice with the DOA trigger however

    The CT laser does not add to the width of the over all package for deep conceal.

    This new laser will cause a slight bump in a smooth pocket carry and might be a give away to concealment.

    Hmm, so you need to push your finger in the direction of your finger going into the trigger guard for activation? This doesn't bode well when combined with normal human response reflexes while under stress, but could be a decent training tool.

    Nice idea, but I don't think that CT has much to worry about. IMO, a laser that doesn't activate instinctively isn't useful for SD purposes. I'm also not sure how much the laser adds to the width of the gun, so it may not work in standard holsters either.

    I have two CT lasergrips and two CT laserguards.I am a brand loyalist,but i hate how the CT's increase grip circumference.I will still get another for my LC9 when they are available.I was excited when i read the post but idk if i would give up grip activation.
