    Runningrabbit747: Laser is a tool but and may be an advantage in certain conditions, however would still rely and train on my sights first, then train with laser. They are particularly helpful if eyesight is a little off due to age.

    Technically, you should start a new thread for this. However, to answer your question you are going to get as many opinions on this as there are grains of sand along the West Coast. A laser is nothing more than a tool. As such, with all tools, you should know its strengths, weaknesses, and limitations. A laser can give away your position, but so can a flashlight. So how are we trained on using a flashlight? Use it to get a sight picture, get it, then fire, then move. Same with a laser in a low/no light situation. Also, when practicing with your weapon, try not using the laser so much. Doing so can teach you bad habits about not using your sights as readily.

    Personally, I have had a laser. I don't use it anymore to carry. I have tritium and fiber optic sights for both bright light and low/no light situations, and I have a flashlight. There is, in my opinion, no need for a laser while carrying. However, one of my favorite dry fire techniques is to put the laser on the firearm and try to keep it as steady as possible while dry firing. Again, don't concentrate on the dot of light, concentrate on grip, trigger pull, sight alignment, etc.

    As far as a laser on a rifle? I find this absurd depending on how closely you are shooting. Over a distance, the laser won't drop but your bullet will.

    Also, you can do a search of the forums. This topic has been brought up several times and you can read what others have posted.

    Best use of the tool that is available to us.

    SO much of what is written about in internet forums is of the lowest common denominator. This is not a criticism, but a challange to always put your best thoughts forward. I find this forum interesting and thoughtful, so without focusing on the weakness of intolerance of divergent opinions, let us pursue the highest level of intent to better ourselves by the content we display! Any way, I was reading my latest Guns and Ammo and found an article about the ammo shortage. This demonstrates that although we all hate it, we have created a situation where the manufacturers are increasing capacity by investing in new equipment and additional facilities. One of the main points which summarizes the problem is Ruger's admission that it sold 1 million this last year. The first of an American manufacturer. New people need training rounds and weapons for personal protection seems to be going mainstream as was mentioned in the article.

  10. New and just looking to get started, looks like CA is exporting convicts things are changing. contest looks enticing to me..if I were ever so lucky. Things seem to be changing in PA as well.
