Crimson grips are manufactured and sold by the Crimson Trace Corporation out of Oregon and have been since 1994. The company offers about 50 different laser grip products which can be added to almost any existing gun. The company also is on top of new technologies and offers green lasers in addition to the more traditional red lasers which have been available for a few decades. Regardless of whether you embrace the new green laser technology or if you opt for the good old fashioned red lasers, you will find that employing these grips will vastly improve your marksmanship and your overall confidence in your ability to shoot a gun in any situation.
Crimson laser grips have at least three big advantages. One advantage is in the area of personal defense. When an intruder sneaks up on you, you will be ready to aim and fire if the need arises. While most bad guys choose the cover of darkness to their advantage, they will not have the advantage with you when you have a crimson laser grip. The laser will allow you to see and take clear aim in low light and full dark situations. You also eliminate the risk of friendly fire, because you will see what you are firing at in that situation.
Another advantage of the crimson laser grip is that you will likely realize immediate training results. Marksmanship is a learned skill, and the crimson laser can enable you to actually visualize your target. When you can actually see your bullet's trajectory, you can adjust your aim as need be until it is perfect. Since marksmanship is also about automatic responses as far as aim and status, using the laser in training can improve your shot even when you are not using it. You can also conserve ammunition and practice dry firing. Using the laser to visualize the path of the bullet, you can improve your shot without ever firing a single one.
Crimson laser grips also give you an advantage when you are using them for sports. The company recommends that you use a crimson laser equipped firearm as a backup weapon whenever you go out to hunt, whether it is a big game or small game that you are looking for. In that way, you can ensure that you are ready for a charge by a big, wounded animal but you are also ready for unexpected problems, such as a striking snake or small, rabid animal in the field.
