    Crimson Trace on Snubby

    Put CTs on my Smith model 60 and went to the range. Sighted in and had a blast. What a difference. Those of you who have concluded that you'll never hit anything with a snubby will be pleased to know that you can with CT grips. I don't know why they bother to put iron sights on a snubby. I was shooting bull's eyes at 25 feet and had an average grouping of three inches. The accuracy problem with snubbies is much more about short sight radius than recoil, even with .357.

    How we behave as gun owners is important. Posturing and threatening does not serve us well in the public eye.

    CT grip or not I was always able to hit a 4" target at 7 yards. CT grips makes a hell ova lot easier.
    There is something about firing 4,200 thirty millimeter rounds/min that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

    I put CT grips on my S&W 642. Haven't been to the range with it yet.
    Never argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level, and beat you with experience.

    - They're useful... if the batteries ever die or the CT stops working.

    That being said, I have the CT Laserguard on three of my guns (Kahr MK9, P380 and Ruger LCP). I absolutely love them. My wife is going to try a Ruger LCR this week and if she likes it, I will be adding a Lasergrip to that also. Great to hear you had a good experience!

    Take it easy sighting them in. You never really need more than a quarter turn. I aligned mine with my iron sights before I ever went to the range and it made this part easier. You'll have fun when you go.

    I replace the batteries in my CT annually. they are cheap 2032 coin cells. The same batteries as my Frankford arsenal scale.

    wow. Good to hear. I'm about to put a CT trigger guard laser onto my G26... I figure It can only benefit me. Worst case, the laser doesn't work and I'm back to where I was without it.

    I did review the video on aligning the sights with your iron sights, which is what I've done. Now just need to get to the range.

    You'll be lucky to use ALL your senses during a confrontation, yet alone a laser.IMHO
    If you development 'muscle memory' using any pistol while point shooting, this is your best insurance for a successful confrontation.

    Very cool. You'll find that you need very little adjustment when you get there.

    Depending on the pistol, $200 to $300. It's worth the investment. They are quite sturdy and have good customer service support. The warranty is three years.
