I like the lack of rails on the Shield. I wish more manufacturers would offer their models sans rails.

I have an old model SIG 226 pre-rail because I like the pre-rail look so much more.

I don't much care for rails either, and like the shorter more compact look of the Sheild also.

I find ZERO reason to have a rail on a gun rifle or pistol . I feel a flashlight on a gun is like putting a bulleye on your back .

I agree, flash light is worthless on a gun unless you like giving away your position to someone that can shoot back.

I have a laser on my P22 for plinking and its fun but I don't think lasers are the way to go for defence.

I've ran a test of shootin' the P22 aimed with the laser and with it off using the regular sights. I am a lot more accurate with iron sights and although most people disagree they are also.

I agree with you ...... I don't like them . I can shoot faster and more accurate at night with my TruGlo nights sight then with my Crimson Trace laser which I will sell the 2 I have . One for a 1911 and one for a Kahr CW 45 and PD .

When I can see my sights I am faster and more confident with them. Where the laser comes into it's own is when you can't use the regular sights. In my case that could be when I don't have my glasses because I'm in bed or if I lose them in a scuffle, or when the light is too poor to see the sights properly. They could also be good when you can't bring the sights to eye level for any reason.

I would use the sights if possible but with some guns I like to have the laser as backup. It is also very good for training as the laser will show if you are pulling the gun off target when pulling the trigger, especially with double action shooting. I have removed some of my lasers but still use others, mainly on the fixed sight revolvers and my Kahr CW40.

I've owned lots of night sights and these are the best . They make my other night sights junk that I've seen , plus they work in day light too . TruGlo has different one so make sure you look at the corrert ones . They look like LED's lighting up and I can see them on the night stand across the room in total darkness ..

They make this trigger reset for Glocks so you don't need to rack the slide to reset trigger and practice with you laser . I don't know if they make them for other brands guns . They also sell the magic bullet if you don't use your laser to see the hits on target .
