    I purchased (err.. pre-ordered) my first firearm the other day, a Kimber Ultra CDP II, and the store owner asked me if I wanted a laser on it.

    At first I thought he was joking, but then he started praising them like stories from the Bible - that, at night, accuracy without it (a laser) was "beyond the sphere of reasonable expectation" and, should I ever require low-light accuracy, "expect to be shot".

    Ultimately I decided to order my gun without the laser attached to the grip. But what are your thoughts? It seems to me guns have worked just fine for hundreds of years without lasers. Do any of you use them?

    You need to learn to shoot with iron sights before you add all the bells and whistles

    A good light is much more important than a laser.

    A laser is just another tool, not to be relied on. First you need to learn how to use your iron sights.

    I agree with all 3 comments so far. Watch people at the shooting range with their first laser. It will be bouncing all over the place. I'm not saying its a bad addition; it's just that everything else has to work first.

    They are a valuable tool when used properly. They are definitely a back up for other proper skills.

    Everything they've said is true. The question is:how good are your eyes? If you're of an age where you need reading glasses, and you can't focus on your pistol's front sight, then a laser can be a massive help. But lasers can fail, they can be misaligned, etc. You NEED to be able to shoot without it. Once you can do that effectively, then a laser can be a great addition to a personal-defense pistol.
