Almost looks like a scam, too good to be true?

    For 50 bucks less, and the added features, I'll order the one on ebay. Oh...I did order the one on ebay....better buy

    I don't care for laser extensions. They make the gun look bulky. I like the Kel-Tec P3AT as is. Give me the pinky extension. I'm thinking of ordering some for my two mags. In my opinion, this is something that should come standard - as well as two mags.

    That's an excellent price especially with the holster included!

    My wife and I LOVE our armalasers! RSS for the PF9 and small block for her P32! 100% reliable and never moved a hair in all the time we've been abusing them. ;-)

    Plus Rick at armalaser is great with his customer service!

    Looks like the real deal. See THIS new thread, started by Rick himself.

    I had an Armalaser for a short while. It didn't grow on me, and I decided lasers on little guns aren't my thing. Rick was gracious in allowing me to return it. YMMV.

    Ordered the Armalaser, and am waiting to receive it. 50 bucks cheaper and if they ever upgrade it, or if I change guns, Armalaser will trade you out of it for $29.00! Crimson Trace won't do that. AND...a free holster from Armalaser...It's a no brainer....

    Well I 'll be danged.

    Peaceful99 sorry to do that to ya!

    Checker thanks for the link! I swear I looked at the site like 3 days ago and it was still $159. This is a heck of a deal and just locked me in to buying an AL to be honest. :cool:

    I like that the AL is not a physical switch that can be worn out easier. This seals the deal for me and to be honest I was leaning the other way before.

    In his link, Rick explains that They are coming out with new technology next year, so they had to lower the price on this one to make it entry level. Nice thing is....when they come out with the new one, you can trade this one in, and get the new technology for $29.00. Sweet! Mine should be here Friday....can't wait!

    Don't be sad peaceful99! Be happy that you are going to be the proud owner of a great little piece of equipment! ;-) When it comes in, get it on your gun and go to an indoor range (so you can see the laser easily) and get some rounds off with it. The first thing you'll notice is any bad habits you may have while aiming and sqeezing the trigger back! I've found that lasers are great little training devices for practice! ;-) Not to mention if you ever needed to use it on a BG all you have to do is light em up and start squeezing! ;-)

    As a former "lurker" (past couple of months) I too was suspicious of the offer; but as I recently purchased a P-3AT and wanted to try a laser I opted to "buy it now" and only later read the post from Rick. Got it today and installed it soon after......very pleased all around and thanks to Rick and this forum for the info. ;D

    Got my AL today. Real ez to install in just a few minutes. The Nemesis holster that comes with it is the perfect pocket holster!
    Am going to the range tomorrow to fine tune the adjustments. (If there's any juice left in the batteries after I've played with it so much) I took it outside and could spot the laser almost 2 blocks away. Very bright! Love the instant on feature. It's great to draw the gun out of the holster and have the laser on when you reach shooting level. After lots of practice, I feel pretty comfortable holstering the p3at in the nemesis with the a round in the pipe and the laser in standby mode. Have drawn from my front pocket over a hundred times tonight with the gun cocked, (snap caps, no ammo) and every time... the gun drew clean, with the holster staying in my pocket, the laser coming on instantly, with no accidental firings. That's the way a conceal weapon should be.
    Can't wait to test it on the range tomorrow. Will let you know how that goes.

    First impression is....light...sturdy...bright....SWEET! Thanls Rick at Armalaser for a great product!
