Training with laser sights can make shooters become more accurate and confident by helping to improve the two most important shooting fundamentals: Aiming (which includes Sight Alignment and Sight Picture) and Trigger Control. “Training With Lasers” takes on several of the most fundamental training challenges by demonstrating the benefits of laser sights as a training tool. These benefits include: increasing muzzle awareness, improving and correcting both sight alignment and sight picture, the obvious advantage of acquiring and maintaining sight picture in low light conditions, decreasing arc of movement, and helping to diagnose and improve trigger control errors.
