This is just my not so humble opinion so don't get your shorts in a knot if you don't agree. Try aiming around a corner with your left hand only, right hand holding a light up high, and tell me that a laser wouldn't be handy. I don't know what circumstance for a fire fight I might end up in but anything that might help is great. If I use two hands straight in front of me, draw aim fire, then I don't use a laser as primary either. Moving sideways with non-optimum single hand firing 'the hole still goes where the red spot is'. I practice with empty guns in the shop. Draw, aim fire and the band saw is dead or the router or the knob on the door. With each of my carry guns the point part is instinct now and refine with the dot or fixed sights (whichever is available) is secondary. If you have trouble with the dot, just like fixed sights, you haven't practiced enough. Note: if you enter a fair fight, your tactics suck and that applies to lasers too.
