Wilsonville, OR -( One important step in being well prepared for life-threatening situations when carrying a concealed firearm is to practice.

Practice is also required to be proficient with any firearm designated as a home defense firearm. Accurately shooting a firearm is an acquired skill—and the world’s best handgunners always practice to stay accurate. Under stress, however, making a well-placed shot can be difficult. Laser sights make that process much easier.

The great news is that having laser sights installed on any firearm gives instant feedback to the shooter during practice. The moving laser dot on the target can reveal anticipated recoil and pushing a handgun, movement caused by improper trigger pull, and other movements related to a firearm’s discharge. These revealed movements can be understood and corrected thanks to what the laser dot reveals to the handler. This correction—if needed—is a key to being accurate with a firearm. All practice should also include other activities.

In addition to using the installed laser sights—along with the firearm’s standard fixed sights—practice should include loading magazines, safely unholstering a firearm, and operating the various safeties and levers so that firearm can be safely discharged. Practice sessions should also include shooting with the weak or off hand. To complete the process to perfection, practice could include doing those lifesaving activities by feel—in the dark or with eyes closed in a controlled environment. The ultimate advantage is having a laser sight, such as Crimson Trace’s Laserguard with Instinctive Activation, which permits the gun owner to look at the distant threat and not focus on the in-hand gun sights and the threat.
