    My CT will arrive today and I'll install in on my just purchased Kahr MP9. Then it's off to the range for the first ime with this weapon.

    I sight in the lasers with my iron sights at home. You just need to know where it will hit with how you aim your irons. I've done this with 3 guns so far and every one of them has not needed any adjustments at the range.

    Your PM9 CT laser will rest under your barrel so you will not have to worry about the target distance throwing your laser and point of impact. The CT lasers that rest on the side of the pistol will have to deal with this problem. I sight those lasers in at 10 yards because if I used it for SD any closer then that, it would be hard to justify inability to flee.

    Here info on sighting in a laser. This is from Crimson Trace but will work with other laser sights.

    If you have the money, I suggest getting a red dot attached to your slide.
    Also check out the Trijicon HD night sights, I think they're better than fiber. Top of the line iron sights.

    I do have the laser on my sp101, but I'd prefer high viz sights on all my guns.

What are your thoughts on this? Please focus on the Crimson Trace part of this post. I have already gone to fiber optic front sight.

    Disturbing little icons, aren't they?

    I have a crimson trace laser on my S&W M60 357 and the wife has CT on her Ruger LCR .38. Love them. Gets us on target quickly and it is great for training purposes.

    I am 62 and since my catarac surgery last year I can see quite good without glasses. I have a Lasermax on my .40 cal Beretta Px4SC that is sighted in at twenty feet, or the maximum length of my largest room. While I do not carry concealed with my Lasermax installed I could. My Remora #6 holster works great with my PX4SC w/Laser installed.

    I have the Crimson Trace laser grip(LG660) on my S&WM&P357Sig and it works extremely well in my humble opinion.

    Our HD firearms all have lights and lasers and our ED ccw pistols have CT lasers. I'm a big fan of lasers, but train with and without them.

    Have a CT on my full size XD40. I targeted about 3 inches to the left, try to make slight corrections and botched it all up. Need to spend one session at the range with nothing but sighting this thing in. Should of left well enough alone.......

    I have a Bodyguard with a built-in Insight laser and a Kel-Tec PAT 380 with a Crimson trace laser. I am 75 and I need a laser!! I find
    the CT laser and its grip activation to be FAR superior to the Insight's fumble for the switch activation... I find the Bodyguard revolver
    to be absolutely reliable but its laser sucks - hard to activate - not reliable etc. On the other hand the CT laser works 100% of the time and makes my shots very accurate.. Get a CT laser on whatever you decide to carry, you'll love it!!
