What do you guys thank about a "Crimson Trace" for my daughters Lady Smith?
I have read on this forum, several times, that lasers are good for training only OR they are a fad.
I disagree with both statements. I have a CT laser on my Glock, and I am saving for another to put on my PPK/S. I think they are great for point-shooting, as it seems to me that if the BG is less than 10-feet away and I assume a proper shooting stance I have a greater risk for a gun snatch. Using a laser allows for shooting around obstacles that hinder a shooting stance. Additionally, since most SD situations will probably be in less than ideal light conditions, having an automatically activated laser reduces the need to focus on the front sight (which would be counter-intuitive in a SD situation), and if the gun is far enough away from my eyes to focus on the front sight, the weapon is in gun snatch range.
I pretty new to semi-autos, but our CWP instructor recommended installing Crimson Trace. I'm ordering a Glock 19 with tritium sights. I'm not sure whether I'll add a Crimson Trace.
The chief end of man is to glorify God and to enjoy him forever (Westminster Shorter Catechism, 1647).
I have a CTC grip on my 1911, I think it is a great addition, especially for low light conditions.
I'd rather be lucky than good any day
There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.
Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.
OP - This topic has been beaten to death numerous times. Do a search, and you will find many threads on this issue already.
Bottom line - most people who have been properly trained in how to use a laser, really really like them. Most of those who poo-poo them, are either ignorant of the proper way to use them, and/or are trying to sell you something else.
All my sidearms have CT lasers. I ran a little LCP with a CT laser through a low light pistol class. That was more than enough to convince me, if I wasn't already.
Many good videos on the CT website. Lots of good info on proper training with lasers on the CorneredCat website.
The number of people killed because they didn't have "enough gun" is dwarfed by those who had none at all. Get a gun you will always carry, and add more capability as you grow.
