Well I got my LaserGuard in and on the P380. Now I just need to get out to the range to zero it in. Man what a great addition this thing is a great fit and looks awesome as well. I will report back when I get a chance to shoot it. f3

Please do give us a report. I'm going to try my first CT on a Ruger LCP this afternoon. I had thought that if I liked it, I might try one on the P380 as well.

Thanks!

Well i had a chance to get a couple hundred down range. It works wonderful. Really tells on you if you shake any at all. I had it adjusted in minutes and practiced well with it. Very nice it is just as good as the CT for the LCP. I would say it is the best addition to a pocket gun there is other than a great holster. f3

Thanks for the update. I shot my LCP with the CT attached for the first time this weekend as well. It's a great addition to that gun and it sounds like it's all positive with the P380 as well. I have to ask what you are using for a holster. Maybe I missed it, but has anyone come out with at holster for the P380+CT yet? I'm really interested because I will probably end up getting a CT for the Kahr.

I will snap a few pics this evening (not allowed to carry in the office, stupid new policy) as for the holster I am having to use a universal Galco pocket holster right now. I was using the Stellar rig w/ extra mag carrier and it was really the best pocket holster I have ever used. I am not too sure what the hold up is. I am guessing the blanks did not get out fast enough for the holster makers to follow suit. I am going to wait until there are a few out before I make my choice to see which may fit the CT better. f3

Laser is gimmicky and finicky IMHO, from past experiences. On a "pocket gun" the entire objective is size and concealability. 99.9 % of real world uses for this gun will be within 10 feet-point and shoot. Those little batteries are a pain in the arse, just carry, maintain and shoot the Pee three eight tee!!!

I beg to differ; the CT laser guard does not add any size to the main dimensions of the gun.(L/H/W) Those are the dimensions that govern if a gun is pocketable. As far as the functionality of the Laser, I find it invaluable on a carry pocket gun such as the p380. There are instances in everyday life where proper aiming and gun mechanics are impossible. In a carjacking for example the BG could be at you window before you even know what’s going on. To have the ability to accurately point and shoot from close your body is huge in this type of situation. Also if he is carjacking you the BG is most likely has a gun or knife as well, so shot placement is key.

I thought so too until I installed my first on a Ruger LCP. Now I'm seriously considering one for the P380 too, even though the P380 has a reasonable set of sights. IMHO lasers are a gimmick that works.

I know for a fact lasers are a good option for carry whether it be a pocket carry or full size. Even military can benefit from them and i know of guys who put them on there carry weapons in Iraq. For instance, you are breeching a plane (not like look at me style) slick sneak up to the hatch lifted by a comrad you open and need to get to your sidearm, do you think you will have the time to get the gun out bring it up to your eye s to get a good sight picture and fire or would it be a bit easier to unholster tilt the barrel up and in the direction of the BG see the laser sight and bang? I will take the laser, but thats your opinion if you are not interested in them rock out the irons and be done with it. No need to comment on something you are not interested in, I mean it really does nothing for the conversation. f3

Got mine and did the install thing on Friday. Hit the range with it today and decided the CT makes the P380 an even better choice for concealed carry. I know I can shoot it accurately with the iron sights, and now the laser is available for when it's too dark for the iron sights. Now I just wait for the holster that I have on order and I'll be all set.

what does the CTC laser cost?
I'll refrain from posting prices, but the P380 store has them on sale right now at the lowest prices that I've seen, even if you include the very reasonable USPS shipping cost. Plus they have several other goodies for your P380 that you might want to consider. Click on the store tab at the top of this page to check it out.

Got my CTC laser yesterday and went to the range with it today. At 30' I was making head shots on the small targets without having to make any adjustments to the laser right out of the box. The size of the head on the target was about the same size as my fist. At least I was impressed, thought that was pretty good for an old fart.

Reckon I'll be gettin' a CTL for mine too. Up close, don't know if I'd remember to use it in a desperate situation but mosta my practicing has been up close without the laser and mostly point and shoot. I feel confident with that. But I just can't get past the fact that a person with a lasered pocket pistol could have made a huge difference in the Luby's Cafeteria incident over'n Killeen years back. I don't think with my old eyes I could shoot across a cafeteria with much accuracy but with a laser I think it'd be different. I think the lasers have their place. :) Lotta folks carryin' them in their front and back pockets these days and and hadden heard of them havin' much trouble with them. I think the CTL folks have got it down pretty good.

I am now carrying in the Stellar Pocket Rig for the CTC Laser, and it rocks. I did like the standard rig better though as I had a smaller package without the laser, and could carry the mag and all and it was smaller than this model A. I have trimmed some of it off and it works better now, but now as great as the C model without the laser. Guess you cant have it all
