Good job with the laser. I've had lasers on several of my carry guns, but finally went back to standard sights. Main problem for me is I'm left handed and carry mainly revolvers. The thumb of my non shooting hand always seems to get in the way of the laser, negating it's effectiveness. Been talking with Crimson Trace people but so far they don't seem interested in producing a laser for us lefties.
The big plus for me is my wife is starting to interact with people at the range, Its like its now a comfort zone for her. The noise doesn't distract her shooting. She will go up and ask a shooter hey what kind of gun is that , the next thing you know she's shooting a few rounds, and she is more aware when she's shooting ... it seem's like it gets better every time we go she's more confident. so my plan is working
