Thread: Laser Sight Question

  1. #1

    Laser Sight Question

    I'm installing a Crimson Trace laser on my M&P Shield today. Aiming question for those of you who use a laser (forgive me if it seems obvious to you but, I've never shot with one before): Where do you focus your eyes? I'm guessing totally on the red dot? Do you still sight down the iron sights or forget about them entirely?
    Are we there yet?

    I have a red CT on my XDS. When i got the lazer sighted in the dot would be covered up by the front site/end of the gun if i looked down the sights. So it became natural to look over the top.
    How did yours turn out?

    I was hoping to install it yesterday but, my new StealthGear concealed carry holster didn't come in yet and I need that before I install the laser or I can't carry. I think I've answered my own question. In doing more reading and discussion on another forum, the consensus is to still use the iron sights and sight down the barrel for quicker target acquisition, then focus on the laser dot after that. From what I've read on the Crimson Trace website, when sighted in properly, the red dot should look like it's resting on top of the front iron sight.
