Laser sights are not designed or intended to be a replacement for your iron sights. Laser sights provide quick, clear sighting during threat-focused shooting, in unconventional positions, and in low-light conditions where iron sights are not visible or applicable. A laser sight is essentially a downrange projection of where your pistol sights are already aligned.
