When I bought my Ruger SR9, it came with a 50% off coupon for a Viridian Green Laser Sight. I've been thinking of ordering it. I have to say that when I seriously started practice shooting, I was disappointed in the gun's sights. Not just the SR9, but any gun's sights. As a novice, I didn't know that you lined up the sights and then just had to know your target was half an inch under them. So, I've determined that I feel more comfortable - how did my husband put it - combat shooting, I think. Where I just point and aim. I seem to be pretty good at it. I guess I'm whining here because I wish there was a more accurate way of sighting my target. That's why I'm thinking of getting this Viridian green laser. My question now is - if I keep on practicing my combat shooting style, will putting a laser on my pistol mess that up for me? I think what I'm worried about is that I'm just buying this laser for the cool factor. Will it really be useful to me, or should I stick with point and shoot?
