(Wilsonville, OR)– Crimson Trace, the industry leader in elevating laser sighting systems to standard equipment on concealed carry and personal defense firearms, now offers gun owners several avenues to education for those firearm uses. First-time gun buyers and female gun owners often are the leading groups seeking more information about firearms and shooting skills improvement.

According to the National Shooting Sports Foundation’s “First-Time Gun Buyers” report, one of the most important factors behind a first gun purchase is preparing for home- and self-defense. That NSSF report also indicates that “prior to purchasing a first gun, most (buyers) have had some form of instruction, formal or informal. After the purchase, approximately two‐thirds of first‐time gun buyers obtained some form of training for their gun.” Gun stores and other facilities across America report that concealed carry certification courses continue to be very popular and most classes are full.

A question that arises in many training courses these days is, “What about lasers?” Crimson Trace offers answers.

The first is a series of FREE instructional videos on the Crimson Trace website, under “Training with Laser Sights.” These videos cover: Muzzle Awareness, Sight Picture, Trigger Control and Expert Advice on Training from a wide range of industry experts regarding lasers. These videos are also being used by National Rifle Association instructors from coast to coast. Visit www.crimsontrace.com to preview the videos.

If you want to simply learn more about improving shooting skills and concealed carry practices on your own, consider obtaining Crimson Trace’s informative DVD “The Laser’s Edge.” These DVDs are available FREE at more than 2,500 Crimson Trace dealers nationwide.
