I have been using my pro carry II for my EEC since Christmas and they have CT on it, I love practicing with them but not relying on them. I also practice with the iron sights. I just this past weekend got a new gun!! It's a Sig RCS 1911 and that does not have them. I really love the real wood grips on it so probably won't put CT on it, but then again I've only owned it 3 days.... Time will tell.

I just ordered one for my LC9. As long as you train with it on and with it off(in case it go south) it would be a +

My LGS had a set of CTs to fit my P239...... they let me try them before buying and they left still on my pistol. Shot POA out to 10 yds which was as far as I shot today with only limited time! Shot just as good with them as with them turned off. Should be a good advantage for low light situations or poor shooting positions, but doesn't replace regular sights, not for me anyway! Great Addition!!

I have CT's on my S&W 411 and on my Ruger LCR . No complaints other than they needed some adjustment at the range to get them zero'd.

I have 3 main carry guns... all have CT laserguards on them. You still need to learn the sights, but you can't get better/accurate shots off from the hip w/o a CT.
-Kel-Tec P3AT .380 w/ Crimson Trace Laserguard and Clip Extension (summer carry)
-Kahr PM9 9mm w/ Crimson Trace Laserguard and Clip Extension (new summer carry)
-Glock 27 .40 w/ Crimson Trace Laserguard and Clip Extension (winter carry)
-Taurus PT945 .45 (more or less retired from carry)
I like the idea of a laser on my pistols since I'm growing older by the day but I'll be damned if I can find a belt unit for my Ruger SR40c with CT Laser. I'd sure appreciate a nod if anyone knows where to pick up such a beast.
I don't have any lasers on mine, even tho I have been wanting to get one I don't think spending $300 for it is worth it. But from what I hear they are pretty amazing, I think they are much better for hip fire aiming among many other things, If you have the extra money I definitely recommend you buy one. Not to mention the laser scares the CRAP out of BG's.

Although not a CT laser, I have a Sig laser on my P238, it came that way from the factory and now that it is sighted in it is great.
As for holstsers for weapons with laser, I have a Crossbreed on order for mine with the laser on it.

I have Ct lasers on all my carry guns and my night stand gun. I shoot much better with them than without. Two Glocks, 642 Smith, and a Sig229 all have Ct lasers.

I CT Lasers on both my Kimbers. I never use them. I prefer my iron sights .
We should not forget that the spark which ignited the American Revolution was caused by the British attempt to confiscate the firearms of the colonists. -
Do any of y'all that added the CT to you CCW had advice on zeroing the laser?
