A laser is the dumbest thing one could ever mount on a fire arm (or even a water pistol, more on the water pistol later) or waste money on. Take the same amount of cash and spend it on ammo and your aim will get much better. The gun laser is a Hollywood gimmick (speaking of Hollywood, how many did John Wick have, yes zero, 0, zilch) it only serves to give away your position, can get you arrested (even watergun reference, can point a laser at many things and people, look it up), it is pretty much useless in bright light or at any distance. For the scare tactics against an intruder (and it worked for me once) buy a cheap laser pointer, but be careful at whom you point it. A better investment besides more ammo and more practice would be a red dot. As my eyes get older and I need glasses to find my glasses (luckily on near vision has suffered), and even though I can place 2 magazines in one large hole at 10 yards with 9mm Luger or .45ACP with factory iron sights, I use red dots most of the time I carry and on my bedside pistol.
