    No lasers on any pistols or rifles.
    However if I get my Ruby Laser built I might attach a .50 Cal rifle to it for back up in case the Laser gets to hot.

    oh also to add to that, I always prefer to use the iron sites, but the beauty of a laser addition to a weapon is the intimidation factor on the BG. A laser painted on you can be a very scary feeling, and can be a factor in no shots even being fired.

    I don't have a laser on any of mine at the moment, but it isn't something I am entirely against. I would want to experiment with them prior to pressing them into service on my EDC.

    Darned things are just too expensive for me at the moment.

    I Have One...

    for my wife's S & W 637...she is right-handed and left-eyed...
    she likes it...and I can see why she can't hit the ground when she aims at it...

    I wouldn't have one on my weapons...

    I have a laser on one gun (my wifes) and am considering a LaserMax for myself.
    I enjoy shooting and with fixed combat sights so I will never totally rely on a laser. To me shooting is more of a man and machine interface/skill type of thing.
    I can see the benifits of a laser under certain conditions as well as for the intimidation factor where maybe I won't have to shoot if a situation like that should ever arise.
    I do see a laser in it brightest light (pun intended) as a training tool.

    I shy-ed away from lasers until I read an article on reaction timing and close combat. The Gist of it is how many of us are going to have time to assume the isol or weaver stances to aim properly in a life or death situation. You may have to shoot on the move or from the hip, etc., a laser in this instance would give you that edge to hit your target without having to gain a sight picture. A red laser would have to be fairly powerful, but a green laser in the dark would draw a line from your pistol to the BG.

    I've noticed a pattern between the laser users and their choice in weapons. I find that very interesting.

    I don't have any lasers for any of my weapons. Don't really want any, nothing against them just don't think I need one.

    Lasers are a good training aid for practicing trigger technique, and they may be a good intimidation factor, but they can also draw attention to you making you a target. No way I'll put one on my carry weapon.
