I may get a couple of the horizontal display racks they sell. They look perfect for non gun weapons too. http://www.verticalgunracks.com/store/p5/Display_Rack.html

So the Levang comp.  How much flash?  How much noise?   I recorded some video this week.  You be the judge.   Remember, I'm thinking in a close quarters encounter, flash-and-bang are not a bad thing.  If the perp isn't sure he's hit, at least his ears and eyes will be telling him it isn't wise to get any closer.

The video:  The first two sequences are testing with only two rounds.   Then an 9 round sequence.  The camera is only recording one picture every 1/30 of a second, so it doesn't always correspond to the exact moment of maximum flash.  (Okay 29.97fps for you purists.)

Listen to the guys on the other bay, other side of the room, chattering.  They stop after my first shot.

The Slo-mo segment is only recorded at 30 frames per second as well then slowed down.  This isn't Shooting Gallery with their 12,000 fps camera, so again, some flashes don't get captured, but I thought you'd like it.





Not the biggest or brightest, but an example of the muzzle flash caught in a single frame.




[UPDATED 5/14 ~5pm]

Here's a better picture at the moment of maximum muzzle flash.

Seems like the laser is slowing down your follow up shots.
Looks like you could get 2nd shot off lots faster with iron sights.
It's something I've noticed at the Range, people lose a LOT time waiting for the dot to settle down.
Of course it's about the most unstable platform possible with more than one hand so the dot will never stabalize.

Your AR pistol sounds a lot like my Bushmaster Carbon 15 Model 21-S. Big fireball with lots of noise to go with it. If you miss they'll run away deaf and scared!  ;D

Or just finding the dot.    Especially when there is large difference in the distance of the target and the backstop.

It is often compared to a video game, but it isn't, it is much more difficult.
I think I'd prefer iron sights.

Chuck never needed any sights.

In using the LASER, I ALWAYS use the same hold and sight acquisition I do with iron sights (when possible), I just don't focus on the sights...the dot is always close to where I am pointing.  If you have time and are in a position to bring the weapon up for aimed iron sight fire, the laser will be in the same place and quicker than (for my eyes) trying to find the sights.  And you don't have to wait for the dot to settle down.  Not bulls eye shooting here.  The iron sight picture doesn't settle down any quicker..you just can't see it wobble and accept "enter of mass" as your target.

If you cannot bring the weapon to "aimed fire" position, you still have a chance of spotting where the dot is, no chance if you are using any other sighting system...iron or red dot.

"Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of authority. It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters."
