    I have one light/laser combo on a FN9c with night sights. I had just a light on it previously. I ran a few drills in the dark, the light made my night sights hard to see. The light/laser combo made a huge difference for me in terms of placement.

    I look at it this way; its on my nightstand gun. In the middle of the night, not quite awake, probably dont have my glasses because I frequently leave them in the living room when I go to bed. I have a light to make sure its not my goofy sister in law and I have a substantially better chance of reasonable and quick shot placement with the laser.

    Generally speaking I'm not that big a fan compared with a red dot but in that one scenario I feel it let's me be as effective as I can be under the circumstances.

    Flame me but I ain't 20 (or 30 or 40 or 50...) any more and I'll take all the help I can get.

    I don't get y'all. M2C laid out a good write up and you want him start a new thread to discuss NC Star, which he didn't mention?

    Well maybe it's not what I thought it was, get over it!

    Read between the lines much? I'll agree he did a great write up.

    Not quite as harsh as you but I had an instructor that said "take all the time you need, don't waste any". That was 11yrs ago.

    Very cool!

    Holy necro posting. 11.5 years that's gotta be some kind of record.

    The classics never go out of style!

    The only folks who say that are classics with no style.


    What do they know?

    Okay how about retro is the new cool?

    How the hell do I know, I haven't been cool since ELO & BOC was popular.

    Cool is timeless.

    ELO is cool.

    The 70s? I guess some stuff from then is cool, like ELO and the Eagles.
