I picked up a Taurus 650 not long ago that came with Crimson Trace grips. The price was great and I was shopping for my wife and I wanted something that offered a true point and shoot option. I've found this set up works well for her. She said she felt like she was cheating with the laser to which I responded, in self defense there is no such thing as cheating. She spends most of the time practicing with the factory sights and usually ends the day with a couple of cylinders using the laser.
As far as the grip itself, it is well constructed, fits well, I don't beat my guns but it appears as though it would be durable. All in all I would say it's a quality product.
If the pain is lacking so is the discipline...
