dang..I'm like an impatient little kid at Christmas time -  I opted for the "free" shipping on the Laser and now I'm paying the price of being a cheapskate

I expected the thing to be here Monday, then they said Tuesday - then FedEx said they're giving the package to the usps (of all friggin' people !) for the final delivery

like I said, an impatient kid  :th_thicon_cry:  (thought I'd be shooting with it last Monday)

decided to keep the "red" laser (and avoid the exchange hassle)

anyway, took the Glock 24 (.40cal) w/it's RMR Red Dot, 250 rounds of ammo, a bunch of targets and the recently installed Streamlight "red" Laser

wanted to co-witness the RDS and the Laser but just couldn't seem to get 'em together - strange that I got each one, individually, sighted in but they didn't work together (  ?  )

did come to the conclusion that, in my opinion, a Laser on a handgun is the best sight system for personal defense, at night, in one's house (better than iron sights, night sights, Red Dot or any of those with a light)

like I said.....my opinion

I sighted-in using a Bag, then I went to resting my elbows on the bag and looking above the pistol at the Laser Dot on the target and from there when with my regular 2 hand shooting stance but looking across the top of the pistol, still focused on the Dot

it's a hoot to shoot with - this Laser will be mounted on my AR and I'll probably remove the SPARC II that I have on the rifle now (and just use the Laser.....or.....use a scope and a laser ?) 

then will get another Laser for my nightstand handgun (G24 or G19)

lots of fun

and now I've got my Wife interested in Lasers.....will let her shoot with the Streamlight I've got but will mount it on her G19 Glock

she carries a Sig 238 but the "laser availability" is limited for that pistol (Viridian & Crimson Trace, both external) - she also has a G42 Glock (.380 SS) and there's a LaserMax available for that pistol (the laser/guide rod)

so, if she's still into lasers after shooting with one at the range, I'll see if she still wants one..... :th_thicon_idea:
