    I've never owned any of the CT grips, but I thought all of them except the ones for a Beretta Tomcat had a master on/off switch in the left panel. From their web site:
    A master on/of switch is also provided in the left panel to turn the laser off. (LG-490 does not use a master ON/OFF switch.) The laser should be left in the ‘ON’ position under most circumstances.
    Turning the master switch “off” will NOT increase battery life.
    Is this incorrect?

    You can't argue with that logic.

    CD, you are a wise man. Working at the ranges we're working at, at the speeds that we'll be working, I don't think a laser does much for ya. That said, it's like anything else in shooting--a personal preference. Weaver/isosolese, 1911/GLOCK, 9mm/.45, the truth is that what works for you is right!

    I'll guarantee you that 1000 rounds will help your shooting, and I can't say that about a laser system.

    Yes , this I know I am sure of my H&Kc that is my edc.
    I have only had my Kimber for a month and not many rounds thru it.
    I just won't carry it until I get more trigger time!!
    It has a very light trigger, Im just use to my LEM!!
    I see more ammo and range trips

    Agreed, but I wasn't really thinking of turning it on or off in a defensive situation, only the ability to turn it off while training so you didn't become overly dependent on the laser.

    Well let me "defend" why I use them. My instructor was a TBI agent. He gave the standard FBI stats that state....

    Most confortational shooting are...

    3 rounds fired
    over in less than 4 seconds
    at night
    and less than 6 ft.

    He stated sometimes, you will not be able to use the standard 2 hand stance. For these reasons he stated it would be a good idea to ocasionly practice shooting form the waistline turning your strong side slightly away from front. He gave the following reasons.

    1. time... you really will not have time to go to 2 hand stance
    2. distance...if you use standard 2 hand stand, you are putting the pistol where the bad guy can grab it.

    So from the waistline, a laser shows where it is going to go.

    To me it is a help, not a "have" to. I was on rifle teams and pistol teams when a laser was only used by Buck Rodgers....

    BUT I like the choice.

    BUT I also remember when plastic guns would never last according to most people.

    On this one SIXTO and I will just have to agree to disagree. Thats why the make ford and Dodge......
