    Crimson Trace has a great booth set up. Many display models showing off the various lasers and lights that they've got.

    Easily the coolest thing was the laser/light setup on this M&P:

    While not a new product, I've always thought this would be an awesome setup for pocket carry.

    At first look, I like that new light. I wonder what the battery life is for the light compared to the laser?

    The new product is called a "Lightguard" and is 100 lumens for the 1st hour, then drops to about 70 lumens for the second hour. Retail pricing is expected to be around $150. Available for Glock (17/19...), S&W M&P, and Springfield XD/XDM.

    I don't suppose you asked 'em when they night finally offer a bobtail version of their 1911 grips? They've never responded to my emails on the topic.

    I guess that's an answer of sorts...

    I didn't know that such a product was/is in the works.

    I swear I saw a press release or a web advertisement just yesterday about CT releasing a 1911 laser grip for bobtailed grips.

    When I asked they gave me a link to fill out a new product request form. The way they explained it to me is that they will continue making new products. Which ones depends on consumer inquiries. The more people that ask, the more likely they will design and build it.
