    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.

    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.

    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?

      The placement of the strong thumb against the body should create space for the ejection of the round. titling the gun a little more is warranted if you this to not be the case in training… but, tilting too much creates other issues.
