    Well for those reasons I don't think you really need a laser at all. I can understand why people with tiny .380's want a laser to help aquire a target faster but in your case I don't see any need for it.

    For me, replacing a part that involves the funcionality of the weapon with something that isn't necessarily a performace upgrade isn't wise. For example, if I replaced the plastic guide rod in my M9A1 for a metal one, that's an upgrade. If I replaced it with another cheasy plastic one but just with a laser, to me that's a downgrade.

    Plus, if its extremely hard to find something like this, it's either A: rare & valuable or B: pointless. You can easily get a green Viridian laser that goes on rails or on back sights. If you MUST have a guide rod laser, you might have to settle with red, I haven't seen many at all let alone green.

    lasers are a great advantage on a firearm. Whether its draw and dryfire, or making an armed intruder think twice. It may just give you peace of mind if you are a less experienced shooter. A guide rod laser also gives you the advantage of being able to use all of your original holsters and equipment without buying new stuff. I don't think they are cheasy or a downgrade. If you want one, by all means, get one. You may not be able to find green, though.

    Ive never heard of a green guide rod laser either. The reason you dont see many oeriod is that its a very small niche for lasers and limiting yourself to selling for only one specific gun isnt a good recipe in the addon market.

    Ive always considered lasers a tactical disadvantage in that your giving yourself away in the dark. In daylight even the green ones are hard to see.

    You also waste precious life and death micro seconds looking for a dot when you should have practiced using the sights or developing point and shoot skills...

    Why spend $300 for some frilly doo dad? For that money you can get a titanium guide rod assembly and have $250 left for ammo. If you want it, go for it but you can do a lot better money wise to go to the local convienence store, buy a keychain laser pointer, scotch tape it to your rail and use it to train with. It's a wonderful training tool but has ZERO real life applications. People who say it's a good deterrent have watched waaay too many movies...

    Wow. For somebody with so many posts you sure are belittling. For 250 my viridian c5l will blind you when you come in my house. That seems like a real life application to me. Ooh yeah, I can draw and dry fire FOREVER with it. That's a lot of practice. Try that with ur scotch tape wise guy. Lol

    Let's pretend, for just a second, I was talking to you...exactly what in my post was belittling??? If my post was directed at you, I'd have quoted you...

    Secondly, if I was in your house, I'd expect to be SHOT!!! If I had the balls to break and enter, do you seriously think a frickin laser is gonna scare me off??? Deterrent my azz...

    These new shooters get hung up on add on s**t they don't need that has ZERO real world application. (This is the part where you tell my my opinion is wrong...) You go ahead and blind the BG with your little light show, I'll just shoot..."wise guy"...Take your attitude back to THR...

    And I cited how it didn't, if I don't share your views, how does that make me ignorant??? Agree to disagree. What offense was taken??? You have every right to add your .02 but if you're going to quote me about how "offensive" my post was to you, don't start *****ing when you get a rebuttal. Nary a personal insult did I see in MY posts, maybe you're just too thin skinned to be here.

    Let's see. you refer to me as a new shooter and say I get my info from movies. You also say my equipment is useless and think that scotch taping a laser on my gun is a better idea. I know that must have been an original idea from you because even in the movies its laughable. So yeah, I'm thin skinned but think about this: if you belittle all of the new shooters because you think their questions are dumb, who if going to defend our second amendment? We need to be receptive and patient with new shooters so we don't turn them off from the sport. Arrogance has no place here. Say what you wasn't, but other people can see the truth

    TRUE gun right supporters don't benefit at all when we are violent or we mis behave. True gun supporters are concerned with self defense and would go out of their way to prevent an argument or confrontation. they do not act tough or wear their ego on their sleeve.

    I once had four men try to drag me out of my house and run me over. I pulled or my handgun and they did not stop. I backed up as I turned on my laser and all of a sudden, like magic, they stopped. If that isn't a deterrent than I don't know what is. I also think a laser is a life saving tool because had it not been there, I would have had to shoot somebody. P.s. Using a laser (even if it is ONLY in training, not in a gunfight) will help your ability to sense exactly where the gun is pointed without having to look at the sights. I see that as a real advantage. I guess you could say it has real world applications. Plus, in low light scenarios, it may be difficult to identify a target. If you shoot somebody in the dark, you had better have a good lawyer, because it is hard to tell a threat from a confused lost drunk. My light/laser combo also doubles as a weight, keeping muzzle flip at a minimal for fast follow up shots.
