    hay guys i have a question for you, i just picked up an "aimshot" green laser sight for my 9mm taurus 24/7 pro. i have been able to get it fairly well dialed in from what i can tell. my question is what is the best way to make sure that my new laser sight is well sighted properly?

    When it makes a hole where the dot was,it's dialed in.What distance is up to you,but most use either 25 or 50 yards for handguns,and 100 yards for long guns...

    I can see 2 ways of doing this, 1) set the gun up on a machine rest and dial it in. That way you know the laser is dead nuts in line with the point of impact. Problem is that you may not shoot like a machine rest can.
    So 2) Set up the laser strictlly by hand shooting so it's set to compensate for a certain amount of "user error" on your part. If you tend to pull a little to the right, your laser will be set a little to the right to accuratlly reflect where you are liklly to put the round and thereby force you to compensate.
