Crimson Trace fanboy, here. On each carry gun + nightstand gun. And even a Beamshot laser sight on the customized MAV 88 pumpgun. Of course,I practice without the lasers on, too, just in case they failed....which has never happened. The laser selling point for me? She is a great handgun shot. She can pick up any gun I own, and soon be shooting it well. OR she can pick up any CT-equipped gun I own, and be on-target, center-mass, INSTANTLY. So I tested this 'theory' on both Sons that shoot, both B'rers, and the Eldest GrandSon. No test-firing, no figuring out the sight picture, no 'learning curve', just start tearing out a ragged hole in the target. Not once, but every time. Yep. I'm a laserbeliever.
