Installing Your Lasergrip
Installing Lasergrips is quick and easy, and requires no special tools. Below are general instructions covering most models of Lasergrips and guns. Please consult your Owner’s Manual for specific instructions covering your Lasergrip model.
- Check both visually and by feel to make sure your gun is unloaded.
- Check again.
- Unscrew mounting hardware on existing grips and set aside. Remove factory grips.
- Grasp Lasergrips and carefully install batteries with flat or “ ” side up. Try not to twist or crush un-mounted Lasergrips as you can damage the internal electronic parts.
- Install dust shield (if provided) between Lasergrips and firearm frame.
- For rubber overmold style Lasergrips, install laser side of Lasergrip first, then wrap other side around frontstrap and install.
For hard polymer style Lasergrips, place both sides on pistol frame and connect together through the frame.
Note: Some handguns have external fire control mechanisms such as safeties or slide locks that the Lasergrips need to fit closely around. If your gun has these parts, be sure to install this side first or you may have difficulty fitting your Lasergrips around these parts.)
- Securely tighten all grip screws
As A Training Tool, Lasergrips Pinpoint Problems
Six reasons why laser sights are great for training
True marksmanship is a perishable skill. The only way to become good at it is to shoot a lot, and the only way to stay good at it is to shoot even more. That means training at your local range as often as you’re able.
Now if you think we’re about to advocate training only with Lasergrips, you’d be mistaken. Because the fact of the matter is, we believe it’s best to cross-train with open sights and laser sights, maintaining proficiency with both. It’s worth noting, though, that a lack of training time in general can be offset by the performance characteristics of Lasergrips in particular. The idea is simple enough: Just project a dot onto the target.
Following are six solid reasons for training with Lasergrips:
Faster Training Results
1.) Laser sights offer unique advantages for trainers and students. Useful and under-utilized, laser sights make the education process faster and more effective, because the visible laser beam helps trainers make their point with greater clarity. Likewise, students can see precisely how they’re doing in real time. The learning curve is shortened for shooting with our laser sights, because muscle memory lessons are being taught at a rapid pace. Forget about looking at charts to determine how the student is doing. The results are instantly and abundantly clear
Enhanced Trigger Control
2.) This is probably the most significant advantage of training with Lasergrips. From the instructor’s point of view, laser sights are optimal for diagnosing and correcting trigger control issues. They put a visible dot on the target that clearly shows students and trainers the consequences of each and every improper movement. Errors are fully illustrated and corrections are immediately obvious. This permits the student to self-correct.
Sight Alignment Made Simple
3.) Many training experts consider this to be the second most important benefit of training with laser sights. Lasergrips help students learn the concept of Sight Picture, because lasers show precisely where the muzzle is aimed. (Often, it’s not where the student thought!) Here’s a simple exercise that demonstrates the point: Have the student present the gun, raise it to eye level, and then start to establish a sight picture. The trainer puts a finger over the laser to block the beam. When the student feels he has a sight picture, the trainer removes his finger. If the laser is off target, his sight picture is incorrect.
4.) Few things are more frustrating than missing the target badly. Conversely, few things are more satisfying than knowing that you’re “on it.” A laser sight provides an instant pat on the back for the student whose confidence was wavering, revealing for all to see that the training is bearing fruit, that the student is making good progress.
Instinctive Way To Learn
5.) Guns are machines. Gun owners are human beings, complete with sensation and perception characteristics that involve muscles, nerves and neural function. Learning to shoot with a laser sight is arguably easier than with open sights, because the instinctive activation of the laser is much more in line with the way the human body functions. All attention goes to putting the red dot on the target, not on the process of aligning the rear sight and the front sight with the target.
Dry Firing Practice Makes Perfect
6.) This one applies primarily to more advanced students seeking to learn sophisticated tactics and alternative sighting techniques. We’re talking about lasering from awkward and unnatural positions. Or lasering around corners without aligning your body behind the weapon. Or “periscoping” over the top of obstacles. On the other hand, even rookies can benefit by dry firing practice that demonstrates how trigger pull can affect shot placement.
