    I have just recently purchased a Ruger LCP for my wife. I am now looking for a laser system to fit it with. I have done some research and have narrowed it down to two different laser systems:

    The crimson trace laser system: http://www.crimsontrace.com/Home/Products/Ruger/LG431/tabid/361/Default.aspx

    the armalaser system: http://www.armalaser.com/Ruger_LCP-RUGER_LCP_ARMALASER_SMALL_BLOCK.html

    I have read many reviews and both seem to have their pros and cons. I was originally going to go with CT but I read that it was somewhat difficult to use and took some getting used to because it took some of the grip space. On the other hand, I do not know it this will even effect my wife. The armalaser system seems to be nice but i do not know actually how easy or instinctual it will be to turn on as the CT. Another thing I do not like about the armalaser is its size and the way it attaches to the pistol (I see a potential for snagging). Yet another thing i have heard about it is that some have had trouble assembling it on the pistol and other have had trouble with keeping it zeroed.

    If any of you have any experience with any of these systems I would love to hear your input. Thank you very much!

    I got to play with a friend's LCP with a Crimson Trace this past weekend. Didn't get to shoot it because neither of us can find any .380 ammo beyond the one box of 50 he had and is keeping for carry (he shot two mags through it). It's slightly clumsy to activate but works. It seemed to help his accuracy a great deal.

    I've shot the Crimson Trace on a LCP, it does take a bit to get use to. I shot fairly well with it though. I think its going to depend a lot on the shooter's hands though. So for your wife, it might be fine.
