Crimson Trace Laser Grips
I tried out some Crimson Trace laser grips today at the store, installed on a non-functional gun roughly the size and shape of my S&W Model 60, and was amazed at how much easier it was to aim and gain a sight picture. I've got limited vision; I'm blind in one eye and correctable to 20/30 at best in the other. Suddenly, my limited vision didn't matter within the distances I would need to be able to shoot for self-defense. Even with my glasses off, I could get a good close-range sight picture. (Within 15-20 feet or so.)
Unfortunately the shop didn't have a set for my S&W Model 60. Fortunately another shop in town did, so I bought them. I've been dry firing all evening testing them out. Heading for the range tomorrow, where I plan to get them sighted in and adjusted to perfection. :-) I've heard the cautions about lasers -- don't shine them in someone's eyes or you could blind them, if you use one, you tell the bad guys where you are. But for me, these either aren't disadvantages, or are worth it.
Do these grips make this much difference for people with normal sight, or correctable to 20/20 sight, as well?
