    Nobody ever said lasers are a replacement for training.

    With that said, have you done a Night Shoot? Have you trained without your glasses, if you wear them? Nobody ever said lasers are the "be all end all" and a replacement for proper training.

    Some of us have come to realize that they can provide an additional edge and are another tool in the Tool Box, to be used. Others among us aren't that smart.

    No lasers wont replace training, and most of my hand guns don't have them. But those that I use for daily carry do. When my backside or those that I love backsides, is on the line I want every advantage I can get! It's that "old age and treachery wining over youth and skill" thing.

    I would never substitute a laser for my natural ability and training... My advice to you is go on to the CT website and watch the 7 videos why you should have a laser (even if is not a CT) gaining the edge and stacking the odds in my favor is always a good thing when it comes to personal safety.

    Accuracy ALWAYS WINS! So carry what you can hit with.

    If you find yourself in a fair fight your tactics stink.

    I don't currently have a laser but I do like them under certain circumstances. One of my old guns had CT grips on them and they really did work well. And, no they are not a replacement for training nor should they be relied on 100% of the time but they really DO have a place in our "toolbox". The Crimson Trace videos will help you see the value of them.

    That said, I don't think I would compromise the original design of your particular gun in order to add them. Getting chewed up in the courtroom after a defensive shooting is a possibility or should, for whatever reason, you have an AD. I would trade it for one without the safety to be safe, even though you are not considering it....

    I'd have the safety modified to remove the right lever. I'm not a fan of ambidextrous safeties anyway. If you accept that the safety serves some purpose, having a safety exposed to outside interference seems counterproductive. Seems to me that it is much too easy for the outside safety to get bumped on a doorway, chair, seat belt, etc. and be disengaged.

    I have the CT grips on my EDC (Sig 239) and believe that in the right situation they could be a valuable asset.
