    Anyone installed Crimson Trace laser on LCP

    IT looks like Crimson Trace has designed a new laser for the Ruger LCP. I was just curious if anyone has installed on and what your thoughts are?

    Not on a LCP but just got a set a couple months ago for my G23 and I love them!! However I don't feel the LCP is a great canidate for them!! I think lint from a pocket can get into the laser, the LCP is like my NAA Guardian, last ditch stick it in their gut and empty the thing!!! I am a fond believe in laser sights as long as you still practice with fixed sights, just not sure I would spend the money for them on a small back up gun, besides a snub nosed wheeler. You asked for opinions, take mine for what it's worth!!

    I put one on mine and think it's awesome. It is so bright, that you could damage someones vision with if you pointed it at their eyes. Plus it doesn't add hardly any bulk. I like being able to see the POI without having to focus on anything but the target. I just ordered an IWB Crossbreed Mini-tuck for it too, so don't think I would have too worry about any lint. This will probably be my EDC as I just can't seem to get comfortable with carrying my larger autos.

    I got the Crimson Trace for my LCP and would not carry without it (unless I just had to). I feel much more confident being able to know where my bullet will impact no matter what position I might be in when I fire. The sights on the LCP are so rudimentary that the laser is a tremendous asset. I was able to purchase mine for $164.95 at Crimson Trace Lasergrips at the Low Price You Deserve. I recommend Shooter Resource and the CT lasers highly.

    Let me start by being provocative. I no longer consider a handgun EDC qualified unless it has a LaserGrip/LaserGuard. Let me explain.

    The primary benefit of the laser is not it's street use, but it's training use. My two EDC handguns have completely different "feels" to shoot. I have found the use of the laser useful in training myself in smooth trigger control. I dry-fire incessantly (with snap caps). Any movement is impossible to ignore with the movement exaggerated by the distance of the laser dot at the target. Training is perishable. It decays exponentially with time. So frequent practice on the fundamentals is essential to maintain competence.

    Some good references on the training benefits of lasers are:
    1. pistol-training.com Laser Sighting Systems as Training Aids
    2. Free DVD from Crimson Trace, Crimson Trace :: Shots In The Dark DVD


    I am trying to learn to shoot with both eyes open. The laser is helpful, but I'm still struggling.

    I am also practicing point shooting. Use of the laser and dry-firing makes it easy and inexpensive to develop the muscle memory necessary for success.

    For street use, two things to keep in mind. First, electronic stuff can fail, though usually early in it's use. None the less, you must also be competent with your regular sights in case of laser failure. Second, in SD situations, many of the things you learned go out the window. In panic, both eyes are likely to be wide open and you will be focusing on the target, not the front sight. Laser sighting will help in these situations. You will also will be able to use "off iron sight" shots illustrated in some of the Crimson Trace commercials I've seen on the Outdoor channel.


    Last, to illustrate my conviction, I would prefer to carry my M&P 45c for EDC. It is great to shoot and easier to conceal carry. But Crimson Trace does not have current plans to develop a model this handgun. Therefore, I EDC my M&P 45fs.

    I couldn't agree more with your post, Howard.

    I did learn that CT no longer sends out the "Shots In The Dark" DVD. Instead, a new version is in production and will fill that role in the future--I'm looking forward to that release.

    Thumbs up Crimson trace

    A SUPER PRODUCT AND A SUPER COMPANY - THEY CARE.

    I HAVE A LASER ON MY S&W 642-2 AND ORDERED ON FOR MY NEW LCP. I ONLY WISH THEY MADE ONE FOR MY SIGMA (my favorite side arm). THEY ALSO MAKE A GREAT POCKET HOLSTER.

    HOWARD - I LOVE THIS:-

    I respectfully disagree. If you can't hit COM at near contact range (the true use of a tiny gun with no sights), a laser is not going to help. What you need is practice.
    Treat me good, I'll treat you better. Treat me bad, I'll treat you worse.
