They are not worth the money. When you aim it your hand still moves slightly and the bullett never hits exactly where you want it to.I think it makes it harder for me because of this slight movement.Also if you buy a cheaper one the laser isnt as strong and gets real fat and it will loose its zero easily.So you make the decision you will see.Buy a TLR2 or CTC these are the best 2 imo.
I think it gives people a crutch that wont favor them if they really need to make a shot quickly. What if the lazer breaks? or is off by a little bit? Would you trust your life to a lazer pointer or to your own eyes looking down the sights?

LOL... I wouldn't use it in a home defense situation or at the range. Maybe just tinker w/ it out on my father-in-law's land when we go shooting.
It could also be interesting as a tool to see how/if you move the gun when you are squeezing the trigger (teaching my fiance to shoot). ....maybe I'm just trying to talk myself into the cool green laser !!
Personally, I don't like lasers for sights. If I want something similar to a laser for quick target switching, I just use a red dot sight. You're looking down the gun and the dot doesn't move, over chasing the dot at a distance.
I've gotten to a point in my life I prefer to go hunting with open sights now over a scope. But hey, thats just me right now.
