About SD Carry

As a young boy in Texas, I grew up with guns. They were basic tools, much like my grandfather's mitre box or pipe wrench, there to perform specific tasks when called upon. I was taught gun safety by virtually every male adult in my family. I spent eight years in the US Navy operating and maintaing various guns from .30 caliber to 5" rifles.

After a few years as a moderator on a popular gun forum, I learned that there is much disinformation, prejudice and plain ignorance about guns posted constantly on the internet.

This blog is dedicated to sharing worthwhile information about the increasing acceptance and practice of legal concealed carry in our country. There is much mis-information and wild opinion about this topic among its practitioners and the public in general. The moral, social and legal responsibilities of concealed carry are immense and must be understood and practiced by all who legally carry a gun.

There is also a vast amount of practical and useful information about carrying and the weapons themselves and I hope to be able to share some of that here. Your comments are welcome, but will be moderated by me before appearing on this blog.

Stay safe.

Crimson Trace Installation

This will be a short post, since it was a brief installation. It is about a close to a no-brainer process as possible. Slip the battery into place. The instructions make it clear how to orient it - you have a 50-50 chance to get it right even if you didn't read the instructions, which I don't recommend. They are clear, accompanied by a useful "exploded" drawing and brief.

Slip the laser half of the Laserguard over the trigger guard. Attach the other half, press them together and secure with the two included screws and allen wrenches. Note: make sure the screws go in from the correct side!


Custom LCP. Skateboard tape on the receiver. Hand painted Ruger emblem. New Crimson Trace Laserguard.

The light is bright and tight. The on-off button on the front strap of the grip is always under your hand and when the pistol is gripped normally, it is on. The fit of the sight is perfect for the LCP with no appreciable gaps or wobble.

I dry fired a number of times and got instant feedback on my trigger pull. Not bad for an old guy. Live fire will probably tell a different story, but that is good. Improvement should be a constant process. For me, there are no issues with the Laserguard getting in the way of gripping or firing the pistol.

So, next will come a more extensive review after I have carried and used the LCP and Laserguard for a while. So far, I am impressed. Time will fill out that impression.
