Faster, easier, more precise target tracking, regardless of the shooter's position and lighting conditions. Laser sights extend the functionality of the weapon, with which they determine the tactical advantage of the shooter.

Laser target indicator for weapons - what is it used for?
Laser target indicators, commonly called laser sights or weapon lasers, are mounted on an accessory rail, on a pistol, shotgun or rifle. The multitude of applications determines their popularity among amateurs and professionals. Even at the stage of training in effective fire control, they support shooters in learning. The instability of the point of light indicates the need to adjust the breath, grip or trigger squeeze itself.
During gun operations, laser sights make it easier and faster to fire from any position, including on the move. In addition, the very sight of the emitted beam can act as a deterrent.
Types of laser sights
Choosing between red and green laser sights comes down to understanding the differences between them. In daylight, especially on a sunny day, green light is more visible. The downsides? Target pointers based on it weigh and cost more. On the other hand, red laser target pointers have better battery life and are less prone to failure, including in extreme temperatures, but are harder to see from a distance or in bright light.
How to choose a laser target pointer?
Buying a laser target pointer is usually chosen by shooters who prefer dynamic shooting, as well as hunters. At Detective Store, you'll find a wide range of compact and innovative laser gun sights that are made to the highest quality standards in the industry.
When choosing a laser target pointer, pay attention to:
- the power of the laser beam - the maximum intensity of the light, the higher it is, the brighter the point of light visible on the target,
- the color of the laser beam (type) - green, red, less often blue,
- the ability to adjust the laser horizontally and vertically,
- resistance to water and harsh operating conditions, including impact and corrosion,
- mounting system - mounting on a Picatinny rail provides quick removal, stability and stable zero holding, another option is a Weaver or RIS rail,
- weight - the lighter the indicator, the less weight it puts on the weapon.
What is the laser target pointer used for?
The laser target pointer is not a mechanical aiming device, but only a shooting accessory in the form of a light-targeting module, which, as the name says, indicates the target by means of a point of light. Thus, it makes it possible to take an accurate shot at short distances, without trying on and riffling the instruments. Importantly, it does not obscure the field of view, so observation of the target remains comfortable.
Which laser: red or green?
A green laser triggers more cones in the eye, so it stands out for better visibility, especially in bright light. Red lasers, however, require less energy and are simpler in design. The choice should be dictated by the shooter's personal needs, preferences and financial capabilities.
What are the disadvantages of laser target pointers/laser sights?
The focused beam of light creates a perfectly straight line to the target, but the trajectory of the bullet is not always so anymore, which should be kept in mind. The second aspect is the presence of the shooter, which - in low light - the indicator can reveal, and consequently - warn the enemy. Specialists reiterate: a laser sight gives more confidence, speeds up entering the target and increases efficiency, but it is not a substitute for proper technique, experience or thinking in a given situation.
