The LaserLyte’s center mass laser sights have been out for some time. Now the company would like it to be known that the U.S. Patent Officer has finally blessed their invention with a patent. Press release after the jump. And speaking of jump, that’s my main problem with laser sighting systems: the dot (now dots) jump around. That’s especially unavoidable when you’re aiming the dot (now dots) in a hurry like, say, in a defensive gun use. Here’s the thing . . .
During an adrenaline dump, shooters have a tendency to fire the instant they see the dot (now dots) on target. That does NOT guarantee a result. You have to put the dot (now dots) on the target and KEEP THEM THERE as you pull the trigger. If you yank the trigger you get the pleasure of seeing the dots move off target an instant before the lead arrives. Off-target.
In other words, laser sights are awesome for training yourself NOT to yank the trigger, but problematic when push comes to shove; when a steady hand and shot timing are mission critical and triggers are (let’s face it) yanked. Not a problem if you understand laser sights’ limitations and you’ve trained to use laser sights, especially while moving. (Force-on-force training is ideal for that.)
How many people who put laser sights on their gun get the general concept of controlling the bouncing dot (now dots) under pressure and train for it? Not many. Are standard sights better if you don’t? I’m looking to test the theory with some volunteers. Meanwhile, you tell me.
The Center Mass laser system offers users a choice between two laser patterns: single dot or the popular Center Mass pattern.
The Center Mass laser projects a ring of eight laser dots with one 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 laser gives the user the advantage of a wide field-of-view while using both eyes for aiming.
The Center Mass laser fits AR-15, AK-47’s, and rifles and shotguns with at least a 3-inch Picatinny rail. The popularity of the Center Mass laser system has leading manufacturers including the Center Mass system as part of a firearm package. Mossberg ships the Center Mass laser on their 500 Cruiser and 500 Persuader Tactical Tri-Rail shotguns making it the ideal home defense weapon.
Since the 2013 introduction of the industry-first laser system featuring a ring of laser dots with a center aiming laser for rifles and shotguns, LaserLyte has expanding the Center Mass offerings to include handgun versions, lasers in red and green and Center Mass housings produced in black and tan colored polymers. Additional models within the Center Mass laser line will soon be available from LaserLyte.
LaserLyte continues to get sport shooters and professionals on the target faster, increasing accuracy and overall hits with affordable and fun laser training tools.
