I understand the grip activation concern.adamsesq said:That does look nice althought I still am not hooked on the "grip" the pressure switch to turn on idea but will have to see. ....
But the zero is SO easy. Just before you change the batteries do a quick site across the room to the wall. Note where the gun sites aim in relation to the red dot. If it changes drastically after changing the batteries (mine never have), reset to that same approximate area. I would guess that your shaking or pulling the trigger slightly different will get you off target more than the slight deviation that might exist after a quick and dirty alignment like this.Bobo said:My only gripe with the AL is that you can't change the batteries without messing up the zero.
I wonder if the CT also has this problem.
NOW I am freaking out! I can't say that I have ever shot enough since my battery change to know for certain that it is locked in...Out to the barn. Thanks Bobo - only I can't decide whether that is sincere or frustrated or both.Bobo said:I’ve found it can take anywhere from 3 to 20 rounds to cause the laser unit to reset
I have never used an Armalaser. My primary CCW is a Chiefs Special Airweight with CT lasergrips. They are "instant on" in the sense that if you are gripping the gun as if you are going to fire the laser is activated. I have never had any problems. The activation switch for the P3 AT LG looks like it too would be activated by holding the gun in a firing grip. I prefer the looks of the CT product to the looks of the Armalaser. In the long run the market will decide which is best or if there is room for two products.Boggs51 said:I agree with "Syndil" and "Drivelane." Although it is a little smaller than the AR, I still like the Instant-On feature of the AR. I recently emailed Rick at AR to inquire about leaving the laser in the "on" position all of the time. I don't recall how long it will hold the a "charge," but it was a very long time. I will stay with the AR. Rick at AR is very easy to speak to personally and has excellent Customer Service--just like Kel-Tec.
