    I've heard people say the Lasermax ones can break and actually prevent the gun from functioning.

    Yeah I'd be weary of replacing something like the guide rod on a defensive gun with anything that's not factory or at least from a very trusted brand... If your guide rod goes you're pretty much SOL.

    :werd: Seriously if this is your nightstand or carry gun I'd reconsider. $300 is a good bit of ammo and/or training. Get some real practice point shooting, shooting from retention, shooting from cover, shooting while moving, etc. That will make bigger difference in your adaptability than a laser...

    better off carrying a flashlight and getting no light/low light training. While a laser is an advantage it is a limited advantage.

    I do quite a bit of low light shooting and a fiber optic front sight and a flashlight are the best combo.

    CTs are nice. But like Yar said, training is probably a better investment.

    I've done some movement shooting with great results, but have yet to do any low light shooting - I do plan on carrying a flashlight (as well as keeping one with the gun by the bed), but none of the ranges near me will allow me to shoot in low light :( The one outdoor range sort-of near me closes at 5pm :o
