Ruger makes some of the most popular pocket pistols on the market—the LCP and LC9—and the company has also been at the forefront of building partnerships with laser manufacturers to offer completely integrated units to its customers. Now Ruger has worked closely with Viridian to offer these pistols with powerful and super-compact tactical green lasers and tactical lights from Viridian—the Reactor R5 green laser and the Reactor Tactical Light.
In the upcoming February 2014 issue of Combat Handguns, author Jorge Amselle got his hands on the new LCP and LC9 pistols. According to Amselle, “both the Reactor light and laser fit perfectly and almost seamlessly without adding to the pistols’ width or length and virtually little bulk, as the units weigh only 0.78 ounces.” It goes without saying that these threat-identification and targeting additions can certainly enhance a self-defense-minded individual’s protection. As Amselle puts it, “The new Viridian Reactor R5 green laser unit is a game-changer when it comes to fast target acquisition under any conditions.”
So how did these maxed-out pistols fare on the range? To learn more, check out the February 2014 issue of Combat Handguns, available on newsstands and digitally October 29, 2013. To subscribe, go to https://www.personaldefenseworld.com/subscribe/combat-handguns/.
