Carrying a handgun or having one at hand in the home for defense is a smart thing. It provides an invaluable tool with which good lives can be saved. But it is all for nothing if we can’t place the shots where it counts. Half-dozen missed shots might scare off some threats, but not all. Well placed shots are needed to immobilize a threat and keep you and your family safe. Enter technology – the laser sight. It’s like GPS for your bullets.
