I am looking at getting a Laser for my LCP, what does everybody think about Arma Laser and Crimson Trace? What one would you go with and why?
Why "hands down"? I've never owned a laser but am interested and the new Arma Laser is getting a lot of attention and interest. I would like to know the difference; other than price. I don't care which cost more. Thanks for any feed back.TheShooter said:Crimson Trace hands down. And the price from the Elsie Pea Store (look up and to the right) is the best I've found.
"Activating that button" might be a big deal. On the other hand, you don't have to push the botton to pull the trigger. Wish someone would get one and tell us how it does. I think they look pretty cool. CT looks good on the gun but there does seem to be some concern about getting it to turn on quickly (finding the button). That would worry me if I was depending on watching for the dot.pistol-packin-preacher said:Can't speak for the ArmaLaser, but the CT on my LCP is a great accuracy tool! Whether or not I am able to activate the little button in an up-close and personal encounter with a bad guy, well, that is another issue.
It would seem that there is good news. Their web site shows it available Dec 1 and it can be ordered now. I hope someone gets one to supplement DrScooter's discussion.DrScooter said:Well being it's not out (ArmaLaser) that is there is nothing to compare.
This is true as I have one ordered since 10/22/08 and wondered when they would be here and he stated the other day they were still missing a part due to the holidays. Should not be too long now!LittleLiver said:I received this reply from Rick Hovsepian just yesterday after I emailed about the availability of their Armalaser for the LCP.
What I asked...
Just curious, since there is no picture of the LCP with the laser sight on
it, is it in stock ready to ship. I know it probably looks like the P-3AT,
but figured you'd have posted a picture by now if it was available.
We're still waiting on one of the components in order to assemble, test
and ship. Looks like we'll have them in on January 26th and we'll start
shipping on Jan 29/30. We have everything else in just waiting on that one
Pics will go up around Jan 20th.
I'm not sure what you are talking about. I have a CT on my LCP, on my Glock 26 (will fit my G27 but the G27 is not on my Kalifornia carry permit), and just recently on my Glock 30. With each, all I need do is grip the gun and the laser is activated. The "button" falls automatically under my grip.davis_b_1 said:The buton is what worries me about the CT being on such a small gun that already don't have allot of grip, it looks like it takes up allot of room and may not let you get a good hold on it. Where the AL has "touch sensor's" and you don't have to press any buttons and have a full grip on the gun.
