I am looking at some inexpensive options for my Glock30.
Has any one had experience with this one?
what are the pros and cons?
What is your opinion?
thanks
Robert

Is this laser solid in it's mount, or can it be bumped and misaligned easily?  I've seen these, but am not sure about them.

it is tight, and uses screws to adjust the laser.

I wonder how it holds up to recoil. A friend of mine has one of those. I sent him a message...we'll see how it's holding up for him.

A friend of mine has one and loves it. I think they look strange but they do work good and you can still use your holster. I was thinking of getting one for my XD someday. Sam has a 40 s&w and it is over two years old with no problems. Dan

I worry about anything considered 'inexpensive' being considered in the same light as that of a weapon that may have to defend you life. I do get that sometimes it's really 'not as expensive as whatever is considered the absolute best' kind of thing that you're talking about, though. Too much time spent in the "WASRs are just fine, I don't need an Arsenal much less a TSD build AK" crowd noise, I think. I'm not a big fan of lasers anyway, and I have to acknowledge that bias as well.

Now that optics and sighting aids are becoming common on handguns, I wonder if the rule of thumb for rifles and optics should not be applied: For good results, the optic should be about as much as the gun, for great results it should cost more, and under any circumstances you shouldn't budget less than half the cost of the firearm for optics.

Methinks I will think upon this idea some.
