Ok, so I have a Glock for fun and home defense. I was thinking of adding a laser to it. After reading some of the info on recent threads, I decided the Lasermax would probably be the go-to gear. With that said, I consider myself "responsible" in understanding my state's laws and comply with current regulation. I go to the range twice a month (Little more recently trying out upgrades) to stay in tune with my fire-arm. Should the situation arise, my thought is, a laser would be practical in two ways" 1. Intimidation for the bad guy unlawfuly in my home and posing a threat to my and my family's life. 2. Shot placement...not firing shots guessing and possibly injuring another. Here is my question. I would assume that most confrontations in the home occur, with you having the upper hand in understanding the layout of your home and knowing where the "Threat" is? So, with the element of surprise being important in confronting the threat, how would you approach (ie-around a corner) with a laser activated? I know this may sound like common sense, but tactically, would you activate the lasermax, and hold your finger over the laser until you were certain where the unlawful threat is? Waving a laser around your home as you investigate a possible break in does not seem to be the smartest way to go about it. Don't get me wrong, I would never want to be in that situation, nor would I want to fire my weapon to stop a threat if it was not absolutly necessary to preventing harm to myself or family. But I think the laser is justified in letting the criminal clearly understand that there would be no room for error in the aim of the weapon. Thanks for any input. I just wanted to throw this out there before installing a new gadget into my Glock.
