    What do you guys think of these? I just bought a Sig P229 DAK that came with night sights, but after reading a bunch of stories on ARFCOM about people using their lasers in SHTF situations i'm thinking about buying some Crimson Trace laser grips.

    Does anyone here own a pair of Crimson Trace laser grips? What do you guys think of them... just a dumb gimmick or great defensive tool?

    Also, where is the cheapest place to buy them?

    Thanks

    I'd buy some because my eyes suck. It'd be nice to think that if I woke up in the middle of the night and couldn't get my glasses on for whatever reason I'd have something of a marker to aim at. But they're a few hundred dollars and I can't justify that much for them right now. If you've got money to burn...

    Where did you end up getting the 229?

    The bright red light in the darkness tells the bad guy where to shoot at

    I've heard some CCW instructors tell people to get them because it could "scare" the perp into backing down

    Private sale, I don't actually have it yet though because the guy is across the state, he's driving down here next week and we're going to meet then.

    That's exactly what i've read, there are a ton of Crimson Trace threads on sigforum.com and in all the threads (probably 40+ of them) a bunch of cops replied saying that they're one of the best investments they made and the second a perp see's that laser they stop right in their tracks.

    I can't justify spending $250 on a pair though, but if I come across a good deal on gunbroker or something, i'll jump on it.

    The area on the grips where the laser is emitted is very small and barely noticeable... very discreet.
