@trex: those are valid points. I live in IL so no carrying from me; sadly
However, I was thinking of maybe a laser. The light giving my position away did cross my mind. My propose of use is a home defense pistol. Also, I'm not battle trained so I was thinking the laser may benefit me in the 'point & shoot.' Being that it is has a small illumination point it may not give away my position as easily.
