Your accurracy is that bad you need a laser?

Just kidding, but just don't lose focus of using the gun sights versus looking for a red dot. I've noticed it a few times at the gun range... People get so use to the laser and you take it off and they can't shoot the broad side of the barn.

I only use sites when shooting rifles...I'm a point and shoot guy...learned to hit what I'm looking at with a handgun a long time ago...the laser was just an impulse buy...that, and what I paid for it was a steal...you're right, though...I think you need to get the basics down pat before investing in all these visual aids.

totally understand my friend... In fact, i've been looking at LaserMax for awhile. Just too expensive right now... i could get another gun for the price of the laser.

I tried a Lasermax a few years ago and found it slowed me down, much easier and quicker to use the sights, for close up shooting from retention you don't need either. That and the fact that the only people with laser sights around here hold the pistol sideways and talk about 'spect.

Yep...I can see that back yard become like the Haight Ashbury neighborhood...chronic homeless, toothless gay and straight hoes, drug addicts, pimps, disenfranchised convicted felons, runaways, transexuals,...damn, if I was any of the above, I would make a bee line to your back yard ....

Yes, but just for the record I didn't pay for it from selling 4x4 parts. Besides you can't see the double wide parked on it in that pic
