agree, I had a CT on my J frame model 60 and trust me I was deadly with it compared to no CT . amazing what the little dot can do for accuracy out of a 1 3/4" bbl. It sure amazed the hell out of me. Indeed they hve come a long way and are very durable .Snubbie K said:I carry a j-frame and will use the LCP for a backup (reload). I gave a lot of thought to my carry gun choice and never once considered carrying a j-frame WITHOUT a laser.
Lasers have come a long way. They are very dependable, don't interfere with using the gun's sights if they were to fail, and weigh next to nothing.
More than one expert, who should know, has stated that now that lasers for j-frames are so good, they consider them an almost mandatory purchase (assuming one has the money available to spend).
Some will disagree with that statement and that's OK. I happen to agree with it. What has been said for the laser equipped j-frame is also true for the LCP (IMO).
My LCP will sport one for sure.
