LaserMax Conducts Military Training & Ruggedness Testing


As part of its ongoing commitment to our nation’s warfighters, LaserMax recently conducted a comprehensive training course, spanning several days, for an undisclosed group of active duty US Army Infantryman preparing for a combat deployment to Afghanistan. In addition to providing supplementary instruction on the use of service-issued Beretta M9 handgun and laser sights, LaserMax official Training Coordinator, SSG Joseph D’Ambrosia, US Army (Ret.), utilized this range time to conduct torture-testing of the official US Army sidearm equipped with LaserMaxs Green Guide Rod Laser (LMS-1441G). Both soldiers and weapon systems passed the course with flying colors.
On the subject of the training, D’Ambrosia reported that “Achieving more dedicated trigger time clearly increased these soldiers’ confidence in their weapon systems capabilities. The course also gave us a unique opportunity to subject the laser-equipped weapon system to realistic field abuse, including water submersion, drops on solid ice, vehicle rollovers, and more.”

The Beretta M9 and LaserMax Guide Rod Laser are a fully capable and combat-ready pair, ideally suited for whatever type of abuse infantry combat, concealed carry, law enforcement, or recreational shooting can bring.

The Beretta M9 has been the standard service sidearm since 1985. Established in 1526, Beretta is the oldest firearms manufacturer in the world, tracing its lineage through 16 generations of continuous family ownership. Visit to view Berettas complete line of firearms, accessories, and apparel.
