    Anyone used these laser sights ?Lazermax
    Any info ?
    Thinking of putting one on my shield around 80 bucks.
    Never liked the lazer sights to much but eyes are getting worse.
    Don't think It would be worth putting them on my LCP,thats a 4 foot gun
    .

    I don't have a Lazer Max on any of my pistols, so I don't know about them, but I do have a Crimson Trace on my M&Pc .40S&W which is my carry pistol. I also have TruGlo, Brite*Site Tritium/Fiber Optic sights on it too. I believe in having any available advantage that will aid me in surviving a situtation where my life is on the line. IMO having a lazer on your pistol isn't a bad thing. LM

    I've had two LaserMax and a couple dozen Crimson Trace and Streamlight TLR-2 and TLR-4.

    The Streamlight and Crimson Trace are on a number of handguns, rifles and shotguns. All my defense guns and a number of practice/critter guns are equipped with lasers and laser/lights.

    One LaserMax I gave to a friend to use as a cat toy. The second I removed from the gun after a couple month trial. I don't know where it is.

    If a Crimson Trace is too big an investment the LaserMax may do a decent job for you.

    No such thing.
    This evening I was helping a young lady with her shooting her SIG238 (7 yards). She improved greatly in about 20 minutes (using iron sights).

    I was pocket carrying my Crimson Trace equipped LCP.
    I gave her a few minutes of instruction on how to use the laser. After which she was shooting into COM at 7 yards.

    This is typical of what anyone can do with a laser equipped pistol in low light (with a little knowledge of how to correctly use a laser equipped gun).
    One fast, accurate shot after another, well within COM, even with a small gun like the LCP. (This is a old target of mine, not the young lady's target)

    Had the lasermax in a SIG229 and liked it, but the switch malfunctioned and they wanted way too much for the replacement part.

    That's ridiculous. Repairs should be free of charge.

    I've only had one problem with a Crimson Trace and Streamlight TLR-2.
    In both cases the laser was replaced free, including the shipping back to me.

    In both cases I couldn't even tell the company when I bought the laser (years ago).


    Come to think of it, I did have the laser bulb come loose in my first LaserMax shortly after I bought it.
    Instead of giving me a new laser they glued the bulb in place. Looked like a ten year old did the job. I gave the laser away.

    Quality lasers do cost a lot but in this case you do get what you pay for.

    At the moment the Streamlight TLR-2 is acting up on my KSG. I have already called Streamlight and they said to send it in, no problem, even though I don't know when I bought this laser.

    As you can tell I'm a fan of Crimson Trace and Streamlight. :D

    Ruger SR22 with CT low light laser practice gun. I shoot this gun a LOT in low light. No telling how many Wal Mart 550 bulk packs have gone through this gun in low light laser practice. :)

    Ruger SR9/40C with CT. Very nice defense gun.

    Bad Guy shot with the Remington 870 using the laser in low light. (the picture was taken the next morning in daylight)
    All shots, fast firing from the hip.
    Buckshot in the chest from 17 yards.
    Slugs in the butt and small target shot from 26 yards.

    Crimson Trace on S&W revolvers.

    AR with Streamlight and Red Dot. HD gun kept by the nightstand.

    I installed a rail and Streamlight on this Ruger for a night time practice gun. It is also my walking around the place at night flashlight and critter gun.
    Very handy setup.
    Got the laser sighted in at 30 yards.
    Shooting using the iron sights and light is OK but slower and not as accurate as when using the laser.

    Another good HD gun, the CZ40P.

    I had one. It worked fine, but I really like the construction of the CT Railmaster better.
