What is everyones opinion of them, different brands and such?

When I drew from the pocket, there was precious little time. I saw the red dot on him and pulled the trigger. There was no time to acquire a proper hold and sight picture. When it comes time to react or die, you may not have time to even find your sights. A good laser that doesn't add bulk or slow your draw can do nothing but help. They can also help you diagnose bad trigger pull habits at the range. CTC doesn't make my favorite model anymore, but they have a similar one that I have not seen. Mine are the most compact and concealable version of the boot grip size and design, made of hard checkered plastic. I do not like rubber grips on carry guns because clothing clings to it, where it just slides off a less tacky grip. They have a new series that sounds similar to mine, but I have not seen it in person yet. The ones that they are shipping as factory on some S&W revolvers are the more expensive rubber overmolded ones that extend below the grip frame. Certainly more comfortable to hold and shoot, but not great for concealed carry.
