    While my P94DAOL 9mm is already a factory laser P series gun and the only factory laser Ruger made for the P series, there are plenty of other choices I am sure. LaserMax comes to mind. Any thoughts.

    Over the years, have gradually removed the lasers from all of my concealed carry weapons. Still have LaserMax guide rod laser on my Glock 26, which I don't carry.

    Care to share why you removed the lasers? Weight? Harder to carry? Improved sights?

    The answer is "yes" on the first two. With much practice, I feel confident in my accuracy from various positions within 30' just point shooting. I do have a combo light/laser on my bedside "bump in the night" weapon.

    Some of the other accessories to think of are the holsters that work best for the P series depending on the area of the body you may carry the gun. I also think emphatically that the correct maintenance of these older semis is imperative. There is a couple of the P guns I have that do not have paperwork with them so I have found that you tube is a great source for instruction for the take down of those guns.

    Looks like the same one I have on my Security 9. Seems like when you get a laser it just doesn't meet all expectations. Hmmmmmm.........

    I think a lot of that comes from seeing the laser spot and trying our damndest to steady it at one finite point and then shoot and then of course the spot moves when the trigger pressure is applied and we get frustrated and also take longer than normal to squeeze off a round because of all the extra steps. The better sights seem to be the answer because let's face it, how many times have any of us ever shot the very first time ever with a laser involved? I would say close to zero. We learn with sights. Lasers are great for movie scenes but in real life it takes much more practice sometimes to pin that talent down.

    that is so true ... learn to dance with who you brought to the dance, with that said most of us were taught with iron sights ...
