Went out yesterday to test-shoot the Colt Rail Gun. (She talked me into it!)
First I attached the Official Crimson Trace Rail Master Green Laser Sight (CMR-203) I got at Gun Blogger Rendezvous last year.
I have to say I am not thoroughly thrilled with the way it attached, I feel it's a bit too far forward, but that may just be an aesthetic mater. It works just fine, as we shall see...

|I tried to mount it further back, but short of trimming away material, it just wouldn't fit.|
The first mags were at 15 feet and were down to my usual barely adequate performance levels. Actually, the first targets were mostly trying to get a feel for the gun, and where the sights were regulated to.
No champion shooters are metaphorically looking over their shoulders for me... Although...
I am not entirely unhappy with for a first time shooting the gun at 25 feet. (Was adjusting to 1 O'clock, since I seem to be pulling to the left.)
And then I turned on the laser. After trying to use the laser AND the iron sights, I shot one last magazine with just the laser, looking over the irons, ignoring them.
