    Thinking of investing in a Crimson Trace sight for one of my pistols. Does anyone have any experience with these? With the price, I figured they must be pretty special. Almost $500 for the one for the AR.

    Quality is excellent...a little hard to get "zeroed"...the light enhances all your shakiness in pointing, but the overall result is quite good. Regards, Ed

    They can be effective as an enhancement, not a replacement, for basic pistol marksmanship.

    A good training aid, but do not neglect the basics. It does not make your gun a magic self defense tool.

    Most training classes, including the Tenn Handgun Permit, and Tenn Private Protective Security programs, do not allow its use.

    A good training regimen, kept current, does not have batteries or circuits that can fail.

    If you have a cat, by all means, get one. The cat does not tire of chasing the light in a most amusing manner.

    The CT laser is the best on the market. It's the easiest to operate. You don't have to do anything, just grip the gun and the laser is on.

    Lasers have marginal value in broad daylight. They work best when inside or after sunset. They most certainly don't replace basic handgun skills, but they are invaluable for a quick shot when you can't fully mount the gun.
