Remember, lasers let the bad guys know where the bullets will be coming from. You be better off taking a tactical handgun course that teaches high stress shooting from cover. It's far more practical that an expensive laser.

If you don't mind, mounted would be better. I love my XD, but keeping it fed & well-dressed may break me.

The main reason I am getting the laser is to help on dryfire practice and low light/night situations if they ever occur.

Woo hoo! I did order the laser and it arrived today. As soon as I took it out of the package, my husband beelined over to inspect and play with it for a while. It is so bright and precise and I really like the green color. I can hardly wait to try it out ... however, hubby says he thinks it will fit his AR15.

Heh heh, okay, he can play with it, too. I just want to use it for a while to see if it will help me aim better using my sights.

ETA: Went out to the range today. The laser doesn't help me. I think I'm going to just keep with the point and shoot method So I guess hubby got a new toy and he's ecstatic about it.

Sorry to hear the laser was of no help. How did you zero it in (how did you line it up with the barrel)? A laser sight on a pistol requires it to be zeroed like a scope on a rifle. Many people think you mount the laser and it hits target but you have to zero it in.

If open sights or laser sights don't work for you I would suggest proffesional training. Point and shoot method is trypically a skill level above sight shooters. Otherwise it is called spray and pray and that is no way to defend yourself..

I am considering professional training, thanks for the suggestion. I'd really like to be able to master this thing. As far as zeroing it in, see, that's part of the problem. Hubby took care of that ... he is so into guns that he tries to take care of everything for me even over my protests. He just can't help himself and I don't want to make him feel bad. That's actually why I came to this forum ... to get a second opinion, etc. every now and then. So yes, professional training will help me on all levels.
