    Tell me, what laser do you guys recommended for a compact semi-auto CCW?

    It'll probably go on the M&P Shield 9 - a Christmas present for my GF. We've groped the Laser Max, Crimson Trace and Viridian. They all handle differently, especially in the on/off switch department, and I already have preferences for my own reasons. But she's a bit overwhelmed with all the varied sales pitches, literature, etc.

    So I'm interested in sharing with her what all you guys like/dislike about the lasers you've actually tried. No right answers, or wrong. Thanks in advance for weighing in.

    LaserMax on a PF9. Clip on Holster to fit laser from "The Holster Store". Good retention without a strap. Fit gun to holster by wrapping in waxed paper, wax side out.:)

    Me and my Gal have various carry guns that are used, and they all have CTC lasers.

    Instinctive activation just grip the gun, No Brainer!
