I am thinking of getting a rail mounted laserlyte laser for my handgun. Anybody have one? What do you like or don't like about it? Anybody heard anything about them from others?

Have no experience but it might make finding a holster for that gun harder, JMO.

I have to, but crimson trace doesn't make a laser for my gun.

The problem with rail mount lasers is if the battery goes dead you can't access your regular sights if you need them.

Depends on where the rail is. Some (mostly polymer) pistols are now coming with a "mini-rail" under the slide, so the little laser doesn't block the issue sights.

I've never seen a rail mounted laser affect the stock sights? Then again I enjoy plastic pistols, LOL.

They do if the rail is up top and the add-on laser blocks the factory irons...or in this case, the factory plastic.

Yeah, I guess I am thinking about aim points etc. I never liked any kind of add ons on a gun I carry for self defense. The more junk you add, the more that can go wrong at the worst time.

Must be why I place so much faith in my trusty old M36, after all these years? No extry bells and whistles, still just the way she came from S&W.

Plus a few minor warts from not having sat in a dresser drawer.
