I burned through some ammo doing all sorts of low light shooting drills, such as raising the gun to target and firing single shots, quick pairs, and multiple-shot strings. What I found was that the light and laser were a perfect complement. Although the light is bright, beaming out 150 lumens, it in no way washed out the laser. I deliberately did not try to shoot with or without the laser, but instead identified the target and fired – I wanted to see where my eye went. The forward facing light had enough ambient illumination so that I could easily see the sights, but I don’t recall using them once. The laser literally jumped into view on the target right in the center of the illuminated area.
