The recognition for Laser Sights Brand of the Year was the result of OpticsPlanet customers voting in October on their favorite products from 16 categories.  The Best Tactical Laser Sight of the Year award for the Laserguard LGD-417C was an Expert Choice from among the thousands of products that OpticsPlanet sales. Industry experts selected the best products of the year in each of 15 categories.
