Despite all the kind words heaped on LaserLyte at the top of the post on their VENOM laser for North American Arms’ .22 Magnum revolvers LaserLyte was less-than-thrilled with TTAG’s characterization of their new product’s utility (or lack thereof). I invited their Veep to tell it like it is. So . . . here it is:
“Traditionally the mini revolver has been known as a ‘get-off-me gun’ due to the limited shooting distance without a laser. The incumbent laser for this pistol proved the fact that these guns are accurate at 5-7 yards. The repeat shot ability of a laser shows that this gun is a ‘get-a-way’ setup vs. a ‘get-off-me’ setup. The Venom Laser brings this same benefits to the pistol but with an integrated package and pre-sighted in for a better overall experience for the shooter. With practice a 2-4 inch group at 7 yards is very attainable with these mini revolvers . . .
“The laser simply brings attention to the quality of a gun that North American Arms produces. The defensive ammo that is available now, i.e. Hornady Critical Defense in 22 WRM is a fine choice for this pistol. The ballistic gelatin has proved this fact.
“When wardrobe or temperature demand a smaller pistol to carry this is a very good choice. Last time I checked a sharp stick does not allow time, space and distance in a situation that may need it. The loud bark of the pistol is just an added benefit.”
