I alway keep a .380 KelTek P3-AT in the front pocket with the laser on it. Played with the laser in the past at night teasing critters or during a rainstorm like a light saber. It was cloudy enough at the range today that the laser dot could be seen on the target at 10 yards. Shot some steel plates successfully and decided to shoot from the hip using the dot only. It worked out better than I ever thought it would. Brought the confidence level way up.
