    Anyone have any input on carrying with a laser?
    I got a springfield XD9..
    I'm seriously looking at a green crimson trace laser, don't know if it's something that I can use or "play with"....
    If anyone has anything to add let me know before I drop $300 on a toy haha

    I use red. Too many things out there that green blends into. Leaves, grass,clothes etc. Red stands out for me.

    Never thought of it that way.....
    Crimson trace says that your eyes pick up on green better.....

    That what you got is a crimson trace?

    I understand the advantages to USING a laser, but your question involved CARRYING a gun equipped with a laser... One caveat I offer:
    I currently carry an XD9 in a custom, form-fitted leather OWB holster (that was NOT designed to accommodate a laser attachment). I'd be afraid of the cost of a new (factory or custom) laser-capable holster, in addition to the cost of the laser. Might deserve serious consideration when making your decision.

    Crimson trace sells lasers on their site (obviously)
    But they also sell holsters for specific types of lasers. They seem to be reasonably priced..
