Dealing with a threat within one arm’s reach requires shooting from retention. When far away from a threat, we’ll shoot at extension. In between these two distances — within two arms’ reach but out of contact — is a gray area, and this is where having a laser aiming device on a firearm can be an advantage. At this distance, having a laser on will show exactly where the firearm is aimed. Rob Pincus demonstrates using a Side Mount Laser from Laserlyte.
