    What is your opinion of laser grips on a defense weapon? Do you have any laser grips on your lightweight 38's?

    Ken, I like them and so do most of the professionals I've worked with who are experienced with them. As you noted, they really come into their own with small-frame handguns that have rudimentary sights. I have them on several of my guns, including the S&W Model 340 M&P J-frame I most often carry for backup. Laser sights aren't the answer to everything -- and I think their deterrent effect may be somewhat overrated -- but on balance, they are A Good Thing.

    best,
    Mas
