Typically a laser needs to be turned on by pushing a button somewhere on the laser housing (1) which is forward of the trigger and can be difficult to access in a high stress situation. The issue with turning the laser on before you are ready to engage your target is that the laser gives away your position which in certain tactical scenarios can be very dangerous. The Xtech Tactical Smart Laser™ Uses rear facing sensors (2) forward of the trigger guard (3) on either side for left or right handed shooters. When the finger is up along the firearm’s frame above the trigger guard (FIG 2) (as it should be before targeting someone or something) the trigger finger is out of the range of the sensor and will not turn on the laser and/or light. As soon as the shooter brings their finger down next to the trigger guard and into the range of the sensor the laser and/or light will turn on (FIG 3). It is important to notice that the shooter’s finger does not need to enter the trigger well to turn on the laser as this approach would cause an elevated risk of accidental discharge. The motion toward the trigger is a natural one when someone is about to engage the target. Proper point and shoot engagement combined with this method activating these well placed sensors leads to a very natural and perfectly timed initiation of the laser and/or light at exactly the necessary time.
When Laser (1) has the sensors turned on they (2) are sensing the area next to the trigger guard. As long as the shooter’s finger (3) is in the along the frame the laser and/or light will not turn on.
When the shooter’s finger (3) moves into the sensor area next to the trigger guard (2) the laser and/or light is activated (4)

- Sensor activation rear facing, next to the trigger well (FIG. 1) for best tactical operation. This placement allows the person to keep their laser and light off and not giving away their position until they move their finger from the safe position along the frame of the firearm (FIG. 2) and begin moving it toward the trigger to engage a target. Placement of the sensors is important for maximum safe operation and tactical advantage.
- Typical firearm lasers require the user to turn on a button which leaves their laser and/or light turned on giving away their position and putting them in danger. Many law enforcement officers do not use lasers today for that very reason.
- Some lasers on the market have buttons or touch sensors that activate the laser when you grip the firearm. This makes the actuation much easier but it still gives away your position prematurely because you would grip the gun long before you are ready to engage your target.
- Not only does the Smart Laser’s configuration allow a person to stay hidden from their threat by not activating the laser prematurely it is also a useful training tool. The sensor placement encourages safe habits by training the user to keep their finger away form the trigger until they are ready to engage their target. This reduces the likelihood of accidental discharge of the firearm.
