Does Your Springfield Hellcat Really Need A Laser?
Among tactical groups and home defense advocates, you will hear people discussing laser sights often. But the one question circling around in your thoughts probably is “do I really need a laser sight for my pistol?”
This can be answered several ways, but the short answer is no, because a person can defend him or herself and be accurate with acquiring a target using iron sights provided by the factor.
What the laser sigh does, however, is it simply allows for a very quick acquiring to the target, and can instantly signify to you where your shots will be placed, especially if you need to draw your pistol quickly and fire.
Red lasers have been out on the market longer, and require less technology than greenlights. However, they are ineffective during the day from more than 25 yards.
For home and tight quarters, a red light works well, but green lasers can be seen for over one hundred yards during the day, which makes them more effective as a whole. You will pay a higher price for a green laser, but if you have money to spend and want the best performance it will be a superior option overall.
