If you are considering a laser because you find it difficult to shoot a P-3AT accurately, consider spending the money on paractice ammo. I have one. It's in my sock drawer and has been ever since I reached a reasonable level of proficiency with normal sights.cnorman18 said:I'd appreciate any thoughts from those who have decided AGAINST a laser sight, as well.
Just in case you're holding your breath waiting for a chance to score a cheap laser . . . ;Dadamsesq said:How about a nice crisp $50 bill for it?
I have found that plastic loktite on the pins when installing helps immensely with this. You can still punch them out later if you have to, but they really help with the turning.fatman said:On the down side: It always comes back to the screws. To keep them from working loose you need to lock tite them then when you need to remove them to change batteries or send the wonderful KT pistol back to the factory for repair they are a pain to get out. The problem is that the barrel portion of the screw is not slotted and depends on friction to keep it from turning as you attempt to remove the male portion of the screw and that isn't enough. I have suggested that they slot both parts in the future.
The screws are my only criticism of the Armalaser as the lasers have proven to be much more reliable than the guns they are installed on.
You could if you could get it for $50, but alas...nicneufeld said:But right now, I can't afford the unit, much less having new custom holsters made (the ankle one being the trickiest!).
Yeah, if I had the coin to get a second P3AT a laser would be a good option...that way, a laser-equipped pocket holstered one vs a standard ankle holstered one.adamsesq said:so now I make the choice - pocket = no laser, smartcarry = laser.
