Video: Crimson Trace Myth Busters — Will the laser be a crutch?
Laser myths. After nearly 25 years, Crimson Trace has most likely heard them all. Whether it involves the failure of the laser system itself, incorrect ideas about training, or lasers being replacements for iron sights, which they are not, there is plenty of false information about lasers available online, in stores, or on the range. You may have heard a few yourself. Are lasers a crutch for bad technique?
Laser sights are not designed or intended to be a replacement for your iron sights. Laser sights provide quick, clear sighting during threat-focused shooting, in unconventional positions, and in low-light conditions where iron sights are not visible or applicable. A laser sight is essentially a downrange projection of where your pistol sights are already aligned.
