    What is the best Laser sight for my Glock 30?
    I really can't focus in on my sites any more so I use the Point and Shoot method and I was wondering if a Laser would help.

    CT are the best in my opinion, but if you have any shake in your hands, the spot will be all over the target. (from experience)

    I have CT on my S&W 686+ .357 home defense gun, and I have no problem seeing it. I also have CT for both my Kimber 1911's but don't have them installed, as they are not allowed in IDPA matches. So... I try and line up three white dots to form a blurry white line and shoot :cool:

    Me, bi-focals and shooting don't seem to work well :eek:

    I have an internal LaserMax on my Glock 19 and I like it. It's a little pricey but aren't they all. I have a crimson trace on my Sig and they are both well liked.
    For self defense, a laser is a must unless you are good shooting from the hip and very few people are.

    Laser sight

    I like laser sights like this so I don't have to go out and find a new holster to fit a front mounted laser.

    Rear Sight Laser / Glocks

    I dont use my bifocals or trifocals. I use the distance lens and concentrate on the front site and target. I try to frame the rear site and align the top of the rear with the top of front if that makes any sense. The Glock has a big white U on the rear which may be a little easier. Steyer has one of the easiest irons to use for us older shooters. Front triangle with a rear framing triangle.
    A long time ago I was trained to shoot from the hip and it can be very effective. Stance is the key. You have to lock the pistol into a repeatable preset position and move the body not the pistol. I have not done it in a long time. I really dont see a major use for it at a distance. It can be useful in a tight situation where raising the pistol would allow it to be grabbed but you are pretty much looking at a gut or crotch shot. A hit is still a hit and might slow someone down.

    Thats another really good thing about the CT's-the laser is part of your grips.
