No bother here. This is what I think:

People seem to be split between those who think they're great and those who think they're an expensive toy. I use them and have found the following to be true.

1. They are not a replacement for iron sights.
2. The red version is not very useful in bright sunlight.
3. They are a tremendous asset under the right conditions ( watch the CD that comes in the packaging ).
4. Those who have them but don't see any advantage often have not learned to use them properly ( again, watch the CD and practice accordingly ).
5. The instinctive activation model is the version to use ( don't want to have to turn it on before you can use it ).
6. The laser adds capabilities to your gun that makes it worth the cost.
7. The laser's assets outweigh its liabilities by a significant margin; enough to make it worth while.

I agree with know your sights. But at home, with your backup weapon, against a home invasion, I think it is a great asset. And few backup guns have much of a sight plane anyway. Ruger LCP/CT :hand10:

+1 to this. I have become a fan of Crimson Trace laser grips. I also find them of great utility in practicing dry firing, especially for the Ruger LCP I recently purchased where I had to adjust to a much smaller gun with very low profile sights.

I don't have one on my guns. If they automatically come on then they are good. But lasers aren't necessary for a tactical situation. It's a point and shoot usually.

Lasers for me has an instructor, help people more today than ever. with the cost and lack of ammo.Dry firing with snap caps will help with trigger pull. My wife will practice the laser on the fireplace brick
and you can see her pull down and to the right by 6". She trains and with in a short time her trigger pull
is self taught. Recoil can be worked on later. Note most bg see the laser don't know if you have a 22lr pistol
or a 45acp. Most bg will re-think ? maybe ? But Look at all the well trained cops that die from bg's on drugs
do you really think we can do better ? I have re-thought the use of lasers, after training people that are very
new to guns.

Interesting thoughts... I have been perusing the idea of lasers but i want the green laser for daylight usage, and they are out of my budget at this time..... however a red one for my G22 would be nice since it is primarily a HD gun.....

I have them on my SD handguns, train with them and would use them in a low light situation. Note; all three of my lasers are activated by a button on the grip, no other on off switch. The lasers have decreased my draw to fire times, increased accuracy, especially in low light, on stationary target, target moving, victim down, target and victim moving training. I am a believer that it is an additional valuable tool take could assist in defending oneself.

The laser is just one more useful addition, a supplement, to any carry gun that enhances one's ability to accomplish the goal. No downside IMHO. The product itself is well made, high quality and stays trued. I have several and like them a lot.
