The People of the Gun are split on the issue of pistol-mounted lasers. Some gun owners—especially those whose eyesight has gone south—consider them a godsend. Point and shoot? What’s not to love? As laser manufacturers point out, lasers are also excellent for non-traditional shooting stances (i.e. when you’re flat on your ass). I love them for trigger control training. Other POG folk consider pistol-mounted lasers a dangerous distraction. They reckon a laser sighting system could fail when you need it most and reduce marksmanship under pressure (follow the bouncing ball). Yes, there is that. Pressure. Stress. Can a shooter hopped-up on adrenalin using a LaserLyte CM-MK4 identify an array of eight dots to find the center dot while moving? I’ll contact LaserLyte to see if we can arrange a Simunition simulation. Hey, what could possibly go wrong? [Press release after the jump] . . .
Cottonwood, AZ –LaserLyte®, innovators in firearms laser technologies, is rolling out the first Center Mass™ Laser for handguns and any firearm with a 1-inch minimum Picatinny rail space. The innovative laser system displays a ring of red laser dots surrounding the center aiming laser for quicker target acquisition and more shots on target.
The CM-MK4 projects a ring of 8 red laser dots with one red laser dot in the center as the aiming laser. The circle grows at one-inch per yard, approximately the same configuration as a shotgun aimed at a moving target. The red laser circular pattern gives the user the advantage of a wide field-of-view while using both eyes for aiming.
The Laserlyte® CM-MK4 allows new shooters the advantage of building muscle reflex skills through learning the sight pattern for their specific firearm. For personal defense firearms, the laser circumvents the user from taking precious time aiming with sights when all the user has to do is position the center aiming laser to on the target. For target shooters with vision discrepancies, the CM-MK4 will bring back the fun in target shooting with more successful hits.
The LaserLyte® Center Mass™ Laser is the perfect training aid, personal defense accessory or just plain fun laser for faster, more accurate hits. For more information, visit www.laserlyte.com.
