Crimson Trace Laser Grip on an S&W J Frame

Yo yo yo, ho ho ho, preparedness peeps. Here’s an end of the month shout out to all of you faithful followers that used the Amazon search bar here for your holiday shopping this month – shout out! Thanks for the small commission Amazon sends.

On that note, Santa gave me … THIS:

No, no, no, not the Smith and Wesson 638 Bodyguard Airweight .38 Special +P J Frame conceal and carry revolver. To the right of that, the Crimson Trace laser grip. I’ll tell ya, Santa really knows how to treat a guy. This is one of those items where, with my budget, I’d really have to think long and hard about, but with Santa’s budget – no problem!

I mean, if you’re packing concealed while buying a 6-pack of beer 1/2 gallon of milk at the local convenience store, and a thug pimp playa decides to throw down on the cashier, whooping out a 9mm and threatening to bust a cap on her, do you really want to take the time to aim that snub nose .38 or do you just want grab and – ooh, look at that – LASER!

Exaaaactly!

Installing this thing was slick as that which hits the fan. I just unscrewed the original grip, spread the Crimson Trace grip open, threw in a couple of batteries (came included), screwed the new, more attractive looking grip on, and shazam!

But wait! Here’s the best part:

No, I haven’t had a chance to take it to the range yet to adjust the laser for thug-distance range, but I will. The thing I like about this is that there’s just no thinking involved. You’re in a stressful situation, someone is breaking into your home, your heart is racing fast, just grab and point. Thanks, Santa!

What’d he put in YOUR stocking?
