LaserMax GripSense Technology

LaserMax has just introduced a new activation technology called GripSense. LaserMax GripSense Technology lets you choose how you want your light and laser to activate—either automatically upon drawing the handgun using the GripSense Sensor, or controlled activation with the push of a button. Products equipped with GripSense Technology feature a detection zone that senses your firing grip on the handgun and activates the light or laser immediately. LaserMax products equipped with GripSense Technology allow you to take your natural grip and do not require pressure or a switch to activate. Additionally, you have the option to disable GripSense activation and return to traditional button activation. The first GripSense light/laser modules to become available will be for the Smith & Wesson Shield and the Ruger LC9. Both are constructed from glass reinforced nylon and powered by two 1/3N batteries (included). Both feature a mint green LED light that puts out 100 lumens (dimmable down to 3 lumens) and your choice of red or green targeting lasers that are adjustable for windage and elevation and programmable for pulse or constant on operation. Pricing was not available at press time. See them this spring at your firearms retailer, or contact LaserMax; Tel.: (800) 527-3703; Web:
