LaserMax - I had to buy one..........
The price was right on a "minty" used internal one.
I bought it for my Glock 36.
To be honest with you'all I just bought it to goof around with it.
I love new neat toys. :biggrin:
I was always not too keen on getting one BECAUSE I do not usually like the idear of replacing critical factory parts with ANY after-market stuff but, for half of retail I jumped on it.
I do hafta admit that the internal Lasermax for the GLOKERS is extremely high quality. The few parts that you'll need to change over are every bit as good or better than factory Glock.
It took me about 10 minutes to install it & only that long because I was being extra careful not to get finger oils on those little tiny batteries.
So far...I've only checked it out indoors but, since I know exactly where this Glock "hits" I can say that the bright "Pulsing Red Dot" is "dead-on" right where it should be out at 35' ~ without any adjustment.
Since I have been an instinctive "point shooter" for years & I've grown to trust the fact that I'm going to hit right where I'm looking out to 20..25'
I've found that in my recent indoor Draw/Fire practice the laser actually slows me up big time...in the act of putting it on & then "brain~registering" the dot.
That's something that I didn't plan on & I'm not very happy about that.
SO...what I decided to do...IS
Function "test shoot" the pistol & if I have absolutely no function related pistol problems then just leave it installed but, not use it unless I have a (remote slim chance) need for a RED DOT intimidation device.
I could ALSO see it as being somewhat useful in the event of a strong side arm or hand injury. That would be about it.
I CAN see it as having some useful "weak hand" emergency use or a "you're down and seriously injured but not yet dead" LAST DITCH defensive use. :frown:
Now that I've goofed around with a nifty laser exactly where do I think one would be useful???? You ask. :biggrin:
Maybe a Crimson Trace laser on a snubbie that turns on as you squeeze the grip would be somewhat useful in certain defensive situations that I can imagine.
My honest heartfelt suggestion would be just to "Get Yourself Good" shooting your firearm without ever depending on a laser sight to make up for any lack of true shooting ability.
Nothing beats the personal gains you'll get from the Hard (but fun) Work of developing your necessary defensive shooting skills.
Buy a good high quality holster & a real good gun belt, some properly fitting grips :wink: & lots of extra ammo & maybe get your firearm tuned by a pro...& don't be tempted too much by the Bright Red Dot Maker.
