    Just curious if anyone carries this way? If so, have you seen any damage to the laser from sitting on it? Or does it lose zero easily? I have rear pocket carried until I put the laser on. I can't find jeans with a large enough front pocket to feel confident if I had to draw. I am not interested in OWB or IWB holsters. Thanks

    I don't know about the Armalaser, but have been sitting on my CT Laser for the last 2 years. Its held up fine and holds its zero.

    Mine tends to shift POI a little if I sit on it. I keep the mounting screws tight and it still does it. I'm not even sure a holster would prevent it unless the holster had no flex. I usually carry front pants or jacket pocket for that reason. If I know I'm not going to be sitting I carry rear pocket since I think draw time is better from the rear pocket.

    I would think that the best place to go would be to ask Armalaser and see what they tell you. I don't have a laser on mine but I would think Armalaser makes it tough enough to be sat on. The owner of the company is a KTOGer. His user name is armalaser: http://www.ktog.org/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?action=viewprofile;username=armalaser.

    Also, you didn't mention a holster. I use one of these http://www.pocketholsters.com/Kel-Tec_Pocket_Wallet_Holster/kel-tec_pocket_wallet_holster.html. They have holsters for P3ATs with and without lasers---both Crimson Trace or Armalaser. The rear shield on these holsters are very thick and very stiff. I've used mine a great deal for over two years and it is only slightly less stiff than it was on day one. What's more, it's convertible for front and rear carry.

    I wouldn't worry for 2 reasons.  First, Armalaser stands firmly behind their products.  There CS is excellent and if you ever experience a problem, they will take care of you quickly.  Secondly, the Armalaser is a tough unit.  Here they dropped one, attached to a P3AT, from 10 feet up a ladder, 100 times onto concrete, after having already dropped it 200 times...  still worked like a champ.
