    Does a revolver flash around the cylinder when fired create a potential hazard while held against your side like that in the last example?

    How do I do this as a left-hander? Do I risk catching clothing in the slide as it is against my left side? What about case ejection?

    Crimson Trace lasers are activated by simply taking a solid grip on the pistol. If you choose not to lase, just ease off on the middle finger--your grip is still strong.

    all great points as always. However, at the end when you said something abot turning on your laser. if someone is that close or charging at you, you're not going to have time to turn on your laser. I would love tohear more about close in defense inside the home or on the streets.
