I bought a Gen 4 40 S&W a couple months back....Im curious about this Laser, I would like to hear from some of you who own them. Do they work well in day light?  Lowlight with Lights Over head? Does it need to be fairly dark out for one to function properly?
 
I bought my wife a laser for her 38 special, its ok indoors in lowlight or the dark...Im just wondering if the Lasermax brand is any different or hopefully better to use outdoors..
Thanks
J.........

FWIW, while I do not have a Gen 4 Glock, I do have a Gen 3 G-23 with a LaserMax installed. It works great day or night as advertised but I am thinking of taking it off and shooting the old fashion way. The reason I'm thinking of taking the laser off is because when shooting, I find myself almost shooting from the hip, well, not really that low but I tend not to bring the pistol all the way up for a proper sight picture. This thing can really spoil you, my fear is, in a real situation my laser could theoretically fail and now my pistol is in the wrong place to use the iron sights quickly.

Laser sights generally work well, and have their advantages (particularly for new or occasional shooters and for training purposes).
 
Their two big drawbacks (as I see it) are:
 
1.  They give you one more switch to fool with, which can slow you down at exactly the wrong time; and
2.  They show the bad guys exactly where YOU are (or at least where your gun is)!
 
An alternative that you might want to consider is a set of TruGlo tritium night sights.  They are just as quick as regular sights, no switches to throw, they work even in the dark, and they don't give away your position.
 
I've had them installed on a Glock 23,  and they work just fine.

Lasers on handguns have more than two faults. If you aren't using the sight picture correctly you will "loose" the second shot of a double tap, multiple target acquisition is a joke, always "waiting" on the laser. Almost impossible to get a "co-witness" situation, so you have to ignore one or the other sighting system, and in the extreme teach a shooter not to use a flash sight picture.

I think proper training is key. The gun will still do everything it did without the laser. But lets say I get knocked down, draw my j-frame on my back, shooting with my weak hand... Or need to shoot around a barrier? That little red dot could help.

I do agree that it could be terrible for a new shooter.

A friend of mine is a truck driver and was more or less ambushed by a small group of "urban youth" one night walking back from a restaurant. He put the red laser of his j-frame on one of their chests and said "bang". They unanimously decided to find a less prepared victim, quickly. The laser may not have made any difference in the outcome of that situation, but it sent a powerful message.

Lasers make for a hell of a deterent too similar to the pump sound of a pump shotgun.
 
The beauty of the LaserMax is that it is internal and not a large devise attached underneath the pistol.

HI!!! I as well picked up the same gun as you did! Unfortunately lasermax does not yet make a guide rod for our gen 4.  They have only 2 guide rods currrently available for the gen 4 and for the reason the 40, which i think would be one of the more popular models does not have 1. I have already called lasermax and requested it as they supposingly add your name to a list of suggested weapons that they will release the product for in the future. I was wondering if you had any ideas of how to get some kind of petition going where people who actually would care about something like this could easily find it and we can get this thing going. After having the guiderod on my springfield xd 45 i simply will never use another laser again. Let me know what you think! Thanks! Mike

You could always consider adding a mount and a micro dot sight. I'd certainly consider the laser for training purposes.

Are these lasers as good as the guiderod though? I have heard the guiderod is simply the only way to go.
