In 1994, Crimson Trace came out with their first product – an internal system for Glocks – in 1996, they launched their patented LaserGrips at SHOT Show, and today they sell more than 200 high-quality laser sights. There are uses to laser sights beyond the obvious (they create a bright pinpoint of light), and in order to help consumers install and utilize their products to the fullest, Crimson Trace has come out with a training video. The video was made at Gunsite, Col. Jeff Cooper’s firearms academy, and can be used both by private shooters and as a training aid in classes.
From Crimson Trace:
“This educational video covers many benefits on the use of laser sights while providing specific details about how installing and using laser sights on a firearm can: increase muzzle direction awareness, aid with sight alignment, promote a proper sight picture plus improve trigger control. The detailed footage reveals that having laser sights installed on a firearm can make the shooter more accurate and confident by helping to improve the two most important shooting fundamentals: aiming and trigger control. Segments of the video reveal how a laser sight installed on a firearm increases safety.
Numerous firearms experts are featured in the video while they are shooting and training at Arizona’s Gunsight [spelling theirs] Academy. The experts discuss—plus shoot and show—the many advantages that laser sight systems provide when installed on a firearm. The informative video was created by Crimson Trace with support by the National Rifle Association’s Education and Training Division. The video is also designed to be a teaching aid in firearms courses.
“Training with Laser Sights” covers an issue that many concealed carry firearms owners seek to master—acquiring and maintaining a sight picture during low-light conditions. The free on-line video also helps viewers diagnose and improve their trigger control errors while working to improve firearm control and accuracy.”
