    CT Laser on G34

    Anybody else have a laser mounted on the rail of their Glock? How successful are you with accuracy? I see many people who have a laser mounted on their pistol and can't hit near the center of the target with it. The transition from using the front/rear sights is difficult from what I see. I have Crimson Trace green laser sight on my Glock 34 and I shoot mine quite well. It really takes patience to trust the laser sights when pulling the trigger. I am actually just as confident with the laser now as with the traditional sights.

    My experience has been the same as yours, folks I see at the range seem all over the place. Personally, I think they're distracting and not as accurate. I don't like using them but then I never put in the effort to learn using a laser as you did.

    What transition? If you sight the laser correctly, you just put the dot on the target. What's difficult about that???

    Where you look - looking at a target and finding the dot vs looking at the sights. Going from irons to red dots takes time too until one learns how to present the gun correctly - why most co-witness irons with red dot. The laser looks like it's bouncing all over as well, takes some learning to make smaller corrections at the gun than what it look like is needed downrange.

    I think that the big difference is what you said, there is a learning process. When you sight with the laser it's very difficult to keep the gun still like it 'seems' you are doing with the stock sights. The fact that a lot of people struggle with keeping tight groups with a laser as opposed to stock sites indicates to me a need for transition to shoot with a laser. If you stop and think about it though, the sites are moving probably very similar with stock sights vs. laser but it is just not as noticeable.

    I installed a Lasermax guiderod red dot on my EDC but have not gotten out to the range to try it out.

    I do have a clamp on red dot on a .45 that appears to work quite well, I belong to a private range, we are not supposed to shoot after dusk, but how else are you going to test a nighttime shoot ?

    The target backer was all I could see so I just put the dot where I thought the target bullseye was.

    What do you do, if you want to adjust the windage and/or elevation on that Lasermax? Re: the laser "learning curve," maybe I just forgot that there was one. Co-witnessing a red dot is irrelevant to this discussion, in my humble opinion.

    As it is in alignment with the bore, as long as the target is in line with the iron sights, it is good to go.

    Remember this is a combat weapon accessory not a target pistol accessory.


    No sighting in of the LaserMax sight is required.

    The Guide Rod Laser comes factory aligned for POA/POI at 10 yards and is guaranteed to be within 1 inch (1.5 inches for sub compact)

    I have seen people using lasers on pistol caliber carbines (because they are legal in USPSA) and they help when they are zeroed for the distance you want to use them.

    Haven't seen many people use them on pistols... Sounds like you have a good setup with yours... Big advantage to lasers is that you don't have to sight down the barrel... Just put the dot on what you want to shoot and pull the trigger.
