I asked the guys in OT their suggestions on an affordable laser for a Sig Pro 2022. I figured I'd copy/paste the responses here in case any of you are in the market for one or if you guys have a suggestion on another brand/model I should look into.

I found the LaserMax Uni-Max while reading reviews on the gun. Is it any good?

I've had a couple of LaserMax Unis - they each withstood about 600 to 1K rounds of 9x19 (with a good handful of +Ps thrown in), but somewhere around there, they'd start to either seriously drift from zero or suffer electronic problems.

If you're going to plink with them, zero them, and then put the gun away for that potential SD/HD scenario, I think they - or virtually *any* of the multitude of < $150-$200 items you'd find today on the marked would be just fine. After all, you're not going to be going into ninja-battle with these items: for an imagined HD scenario, you're looking at perhaps no more than two magazines' worth of ammo needing to be expended, and even today's "airsoft grade" electronics are more than durable enough for that.

But if you're thinking about serious practice or going to training classes with such devices, I'd really recommend that you go by the old saying of "buy once, cry once." The TLR-2 has been reported as being good by some, marginal (or even less so by others)...one member on another Subaru Forum decided after about a weeks' worth of research to just suck it up and go with a Surefire X400.

I've had pretty good luck with the old Insight M6. You should be able to get those second-hand for well less than $150. Their output is limited (it was quoted an honest ~100 lumens, and the reflector assembly does produce artifacts) and the unit has limited run-time (incandescent), but that said, the run-time and output should both be more than sufficient for average HD-duty, unless that scenario for you also extends to covering your property, and you happen to have a bigger yard.

In the end, you've gotta ask yourself why you want a laser, and how this particular aiming aid is going to be employed. Let that guide your purchase.

The light switch is on the other side of the room and right then is when I thought that a light/laser combo would have been handy. I do keep a flashlight nearby also but having a free hand would be much more preferable.

It ended up being something in the kitchen that fell, not some skell trying to steal pots and pans.

Using a laser is not as great as people want to think or have been trained to think by seeing them used in movies. They could give your position away while engaged in a home defense situation and the shooter will be more focused on the laser, rather than the more important front site picture. The laser is electronic and works off of a battery which could fail and murphy's law will tell you that it most likely will fail when you need it the most. This can be said with a weapon mounted light as well. Something to get around this and have a solid back up plan would be to get a set of night sights installed which work very well in total darkness to low light environments. I have a glock 21 SF gen 4 with trijicon night sights and a surefire x300. I have shot numerous times in low light to total darkness situations with just the night sights and they are very efficient in my experience.

Your reasoning seems very similar to that of a police officer, or someone of a similar capacity. I like it.

I do have some background. Its really about preference but practicality is important to consider.. KISS.. Keep it simple stupid. I aloe have a springfield armory XD 4" .40 cal with a TLR 3.. Just a light no laser and have not gotten around to putting night sights on it. I have a springfield XD S .45 on the way for my CCW.

Hi guys,

Can you PM me with recommendations for ranges to rent/shoot? I live in NYC, and I am planning a little bachelor's party for my friend.

I will be heading around 3 hours north, or 2 hours northwest of NYC for some other activity, so something around those areas would work nicely. But I suppose anything close to the city would work too.

Thanks!

You have Blue Mountain, Putnam Fish & Game, Whortlekill Rod & Gun and Wooster Mountain in CT. All are about an hour or so from NYC.

I'm sure there are others.

Thanks for the suggestions, but I dont think any of those rent out firearms.

I see this place: http://www.sunset-range.com/index.php/firearms
But seems a bit expensive. Is that the general going rate?

Then there's this place: http://www.thundermt.com/rates.html
It's only skeet/trap shooting, but much for affordable.

Oh, ok. Didn't catch the part about renting also. Check out this old thread I started a while back. I never ended up going but I wanted to go to Sunset Hill.

Love that 700. It kicks like a mule but even with a slight breeze we had like 1/2" groupings at 75 yards.

Just picked up my first gun. I cant be any happier.


Kimber 1911 tle/rl

33 days later...... I picked up my second gun


HK p30 9mm



I got about 500 rounds with the Kimber and about 120ish with the HK. Any range suggestions in NJ? I been going to Heritage guild in Easton PA. Would be nice if there was one closer.

Congrats!! Both of those are awesome! I've wanted a P30 for a while now. How do you like it so far? I ended up getting a SIG instead since I couldn't find a P30 to look at locally.

I love it. The main reason why I went with the P30 is because it fits like a glove in my hand. Adjustable back straps ftw. The trigger pull is a bit long for my liking but that is probably because I'm spoiled by the trigger my kimber has.

Just a bit of advice, if you're in Jersey, I would remove those rounds from the case if you're traveling. No need to give the law any reason to give you a hard time.

yup, I only did it for the picture. I always put my ammo in the back and firearms in the trunk.
