Default Guide rod laser?

Can anyone give me input on installing a guide rod laser to my XDS? I'm not looking for instructions, only experience using this laser, good, bad idea?

I have a guide rod laser, cool idea ! Mine is in a glock 26 . I would love this thing except there is no holster that won't activate the on off switch, so my opinion is that its a waste of $300
I do have a crimson trace laser guard and a laser grip for xd and xdm and viridian x5L . Check around they are making many holsters now that accomadate these lasers

My Blackhawk holster doesn't activate the laser.

Thanks for all of your in-put. Think I'll stick with Crimson Trace!

You have three responses, and you get all giggled like a girl at her first dance.

I think you should do a bit more research into the gear you spend money on than that IMHO.

I have a internal laser on my 20 year old Glock 20. I love mine. The holster I use turns the laser off, but does not turn it on, which is how I would want it. Perfect.

I am sure newer lasers are more powerful in their current offerings, and if you can stand reading a forth review, I think anyone thinking about a laser in their sidearm should look into a guide rod laser if their goal is a gun that has a discrete laser that does not show on your weapon unless you need it.

Ar10, care to tell us what holster your referring to? Also would you know of a iwb that would work for the guide rod laser?
I do like the concept just don't like changing batteries, easy to work laser with no adjustments
Thanks
