Thanks to the kind efforts of Linoge over at Walls of the City and his relationship with Crimson Trace, I was able to score a laser grip for my mother's Ruger LCR for test & evaluation (T&E).
What will set this review apart from other reviews is that I will not be testing the product. In fact, the only thing I will be doing in any official capacity is writing about it. No, the actual testing and evaluating and opining on it will be done by my 73-year-old mother.
Now, mom has fired a gun before, but she is very much a novice at it -- as an example, she never heard the term "iron sights" before and didn't know what it meant -- and so therefore her use of this product will be the ultimate test of "Is it user-friendly? Are the directions clear? Is this product, in fact, so easy that a grandmother can install and use it?"
Part 1 will cover the unboxing and installation, and will appear later this week.
Part 2 will cover her actually using it at the range, and will occur whenever I can take her shooting.
