Thread: Lasers. Where did they go?

Maybe but honestly I feel like the strobe effect does make it stand out more.

For me it doesn't make a difference in how much it stands out, I just prefer a solid beam since it's less chaotic and helps give me a better idea of how much my hands are moving when I pull the trigger.

That makes sense as a training aid.

Well I found that Sig combo for dirt cheap so I ordered it. If I don't like it I won't be too bummed and I might be able to sell it. I'll post pictures when it arrives.

I'm not so sure of that. I have Fruit of the Loom underpants with FTL printed all over the waistband. /fail

What, do you live in a stadium or something?
You just don't need a laser indoors.
Do me a solid, next time you hit the (outdoor,) range try a little point shooting at 25 meters. Just point the gun at the thing you want to hit, and pull the trigger.
No fancy aimin' or usin' sights or nothin'.
Notice you still hit the target.
Lasers ostensibly take away the time required to acquire a sight picture, but under 25 meters, (gunfight range) there's scant need to do so. It's like using a mouse at that range, point and click.
What you do need, and should be worried about with a pistol, is getting a damned good flashlight on that rail, and finding a holster that will accommodate it.
Lumination in a firefight, especially an indoor firefight, is SO important.Originally Posted by Cullion

Lasers are nice for "stand-off" situations where you have the time to locate the dot and place it on target..it also has a psychological effect on the person its placed on. For most defensive shooting scenarios though, that seemingly small fraction of time it takes for your eyes and brain to register where that little dot is takes more time than you realize. A red dot optic is far better than a laser IMO.

Yup. The red dot just adds to your OODA loop.Originally Posted by Cullion
