An intimate look at lasers and why shooters are choosing green beams
Available in red or green, these lasers allow gun owners to effectively shoot from unorthodox positions, such as lying on one side or shooting from behind cover. They also boast the additional benefit of being easily seen in low light and no light shooting situations, a pro that traditional sights lack.
Green lasers are nothing new to the industry, introduced to the commercial market several years ago, but they’ve continued to gain in popularity and now many laser accessory companies tout models in both red and green. What makes green the trendier option and why are consumers willing to throw down more cash to own one?
“Green technology is more expensive than red to produce,” Michael Faw of Crimson Traceexplained to Guns.com in an email. “Customers spend more for green because it is sometimes easier to see during daylight.”
