    Laser Grip for P3AT/P32?

    Does anyone have experience with the Crimson Trace laser grips for the Kel-Tec P3AT or P32? They're kinda pricey in relation to the weapon ($209), but blurry vision in my aiming eye is making me think about it.

    The Kel-Tec with laser looks like a real nice package and DeSantis makes a Nemesis pocket holster that accomodates for $29

    I had a Crimson Trace on my old Glock. LOVED it, can't wait for one to show up locally for my XD9SC. I had an Armalaser on my Kahr. I think laser grips are an EXCELLENT addition to any defensive gun. I cannot find a reason why NOT to have them.

    Looks like someone has posted an owner's report of the Crimson Trace Laser Grips on the P3AT over at KTOG.ORG - GREAT INFO with PICS!

    My accuracy with the P3AT is rather limited. I rarely practice shooting it beyond 3 yards. Given those circumstance, a laser grip would seem like a waste of money for me.

    I would rather buy the laser grip for a gun that shoots well at 15 yards and beyond.

    I agree! I have the Crimson Trace on my Taurus .38 Special and Lasermax on my Glocks. The Judge (loaded with .410 #4 is point and shoot, not aim and shoot.

    Cost is a definite factor. Lasermax plus Trijicon night sights on the Glocks almost double the cost of the guns.

    I've had CT Lasergrips on 1911s, Glocks and J-frame revolvers. My wife has them on her CZ75B. They have been of uniformly excellent quality and durability. I don't see why the unit for the KelTec will be different.

    I can, at least for the Glock unit. The CT unit for the Glock increased the trigger reach to the point where it was a little difficult for me to use. The housing for the laser diode also makes weak-hand-only shooting more difficult because it barks my thumb knuckle with each shot. These are problems with my hands and the Glock unit, though, and many people may not have them at all. Might be something to check before you spend $300 for the laser, though it appears it would not be the case with the unit for the KelTec.

    But what if the laser enhanced your accuracy and turned a three-yard gun into a seven-yard gun? It's not like we defenders control the circumstances of a fight, nor is the fight based on what gun we happen to be carrying. The bad guys largely determine the circumstances of the fight, including the distance. The fact that we're carrying short range guns does not guarantee us a short-range fight.

    My CT grip on my Glock 23C actually INCREASED the palm-swell, and I gripped the gun better... but then, I have abnormal hands...

    lol

    I certainly understand that point - but I have an eye condition that is present in my right eye that leaves the center of my vision field blurry to the point that I lose the front sight on many guns - I have had several recommendations such as fiber optics, Trijicon, etc but the $200 laser and the $250 Kel-Tec P3AT seem like a good option for carry. The Remington 870 at home doesnt need the laser
