(Wilsonville, OR)— According to the US Census Bureau report, An Aging Nation: The Older Population in the United States, there were 43 million Americans age 65 or older across America in 2012—the year the numbers were generated. That older age group is dramatically growing, according to the same report. Along with aging comes a common problem—failing eyesight.
Older Crimson Trace customers regularly report having difficulty seeing the rear sight, front sight, and target (three focal planes) required as a normal sight picture when shooting a firearm. Those same gun owning customers report that the bright red or green dot generated from a Crimson Trace laser sight—and visible on the target—renews their confidence.
“The Crimson Trace Customer Service Center receives phone calls on a daily basis from older citizens who have trouble aiming because of diminished eyesight—a common factor in aging,” reports Nate Hoke, Crimson Trace Director of Customer Service. “Those same customers enthusiastically report their Crimson Trace laser sights make all the difference in improving their accuracy—and restoring confidence—by being so easy to see on the target.” The brilliant Crimson Trace red and green laser dots are highly visible on the target—one focal plane—by any shooter who has the company’s laser sights installed and activated.
Older Americans who want to check their vision can consider this resource as a starting point: http://www.zeiss.com/vision-care/en_us/better-vision/better-vision-with-zeiss/zeiss-online-vision-screening-check.html. Having laser sights installed on a firearm offers many advantages, and the bright projected laser dot is easy to see in darkness, low light conditions and other times.
Most Crimson Trace laser sight diodes and LED lights are powered by 1, 2 or 4 batteries. All company products are shipped with the required battery, and now nearly all products are covered under the company’s Free Batteries for Life program.
Under the program, Crimson Trace customers register their product(s), (excluding Defender and Bodyguard laser sights), and then those customers have to only contact the company every year on the anniversary of that purchase to receive a new set of FREE batteries. Crimson Trace batteries have an average 2 years-plus lifespan with normal use. Those registered customers never have to purchase another set of batteries, and during the lifetime of owning the firearm with the laser installed, this can result in a savings of up to $50.

Crimson Trace laser sights and lights help Americans from coast to coast to defend themselves, their families, their homes— and their country.
