    Keep going to the range. Laser is only good at night. Keep working on your form, it'll come.

    It's a terrific way to practice. It shows you exactly how unstable you are. Thus you can practice improving. Be exceptionally careful that the gun is unloaded. Make sure there is no ammo within reach. The laser is excellent at night but can be valuable during the day as well. In the shade you'll be able to see it probably at 50 feet maybe better. In bright sunlight it will wash out.

    lasers are great, but do not rely on them to teach u how to shoot or to make you better, keep going to the range and work on everything there, dry fire only gets u so far. good luck with everything and shoot straight!

    In a semi-dark basement, it is good to dry practice with a laser. With the lights on, practice with a coin on top of your gun. It helps your grip to be steady. And green is a better colour than red too.

    Lasers are nice. Very posh, very scientific.... blah blah!

    I have one problem with them...... Us old military types were taught that the most important part of your "sight picture" is the focus on the front sight blade, pistol or rifle, no difference. (Why? Because a little out of alignment of the front sight is VERY unforgiving at the target.)

    I find lasers tend to draw my "focus" to the "dancing light" spot on the target and away from the front sight blade, to the detriment of my generally excellent accuracy.

    Anyone else have that "problem"?

    Too many people rely on these sights to be accurate. As Murphy's Law demands they will fail or get out of alignment.. Nothing and I repeat nothing beats practice, practice!

    Actually you can practice indoors any time with a laser. You can even practice outdoors as long as you aren't in bright sunlight.

    I don't. I either use the laser or the sights depending on what I'm trying to do and which works best for the circumstances.
