God Bless our Free Country. Lasers if you want them, turn 'em off if you don't want 'em.

And unlike ObamaCare, you don't have to buy one if you don't want one.

You may never need your laser, but then again, you may WANT a laser.

Live it up . . . Get one if you want one.
I usually ignore mine, but I'm glad that the grip turns it on, it's there if I want it.

The laser is one of the best training aids around. Dry fire and watch it bounce. Practice and the bounce will disappear. It will teach you trigger control and follow through. NEVER get battery or device dependent. Replace your batteries yearly whether they need it or not and practice without the laser. Remember Murphy's Law.

A laser is a tool that you use when you can't bring the weapon to your face.

There's no guarantee that you won't be injured or in a position where acquiring the sights is difficult. A laser is a tertiary aiming aid, but a necessary one in some situations.

Having a high quality laser like a LaserMax unit is a really good idea.

If you don't need it, don't use it.

The intimidation crap is just that. If someone is not intimidated by having a gun pointed at them then a laser isn't going to make any difference.

With respect to Murphy's Law, as another poster pointed out, if it's possible that you will find yourself in a gunfight where you can't bring the weapon to your face then that's the fight you'll find yourself in. Whether something runs on batteries or not has no bearing on if/when it can fail.

A laser would be fun to play around with but, I doubt it would be of much help in a real self-defense situation.
