Pairing a 100-lumen mint green light with either a red or green laser sight, models in LaserMax’s new CenterFire GripSense line can be configured to activate manually with the push of a button or automatically when the host pistol is gripped. The GripSense activation technology projects a detection zone beneath the trigger guard and then actuates the unit when it senses the shooter’s hand. The CF-LC9-C-G model shown is compatible with Ruger’s LC9-pattern pistols, features a bright green laser sight—fully adjustable for elevation and windage—can be programmed for either steady or pulse operation and has an external door that allows the battery to be replaced without removing the unit. Price: $220. Contact: LaserMax; (800) 527-3703; lasermax.com.
