Years ago, I had a feeling that lasers were a good thing for a self or home-defense gun. I’d only used them on the range for practice, and at home dry firing, but it just seemed so sensible to me. All of the “marketing messages” sounded pretty rational.
“You can focus on the threat and still aim accurately.”
“They help you aim in low light conditions, when most self-defense encounters occur.”
“Lasers allow you to shoot accurately from unconventional positions.”
