Laser Sights and Weapons Mounted Lights

When it comes to life or death situations having gear that gives you an edge is important. A laser is by no means a substitute for traditional iron sights, but it is a tool to use in conjunction with irons. Good lasers are not cheap, and cheap lasers are not good! With precision tools such as lasers theres just a few brands that we trust, unfortunately many people get fooled into purchasing poorly made inexpensive lasers hiding behind a Tacti-COOL name. Often times these lasers will not hold zero or adjust properly leaving folks disappointed and skeptical of what has proven to many to be an indispensable tool.  Attaching a laser or weapon mounted light to your firearm is one way to make sure your never left in the dark.
