I'm thinking each request goes to a computer which knows if it's a duplicate;  just my thinking; but hey, Gene, if it makes you feel better.    ;D

That would be OK, Gene, but I've already put my request in, as well.    ;D

    I really don't mind emailing crimson trace once a month, but I can't help feeling that I'm just p****** in the wind. I hope not, but thats the way it feels.     Gene

You're right.  I put in my request for a few months and thought about the computer knowing it was me and gave up.

I'm starting to use all the names and email addresses of friends I show the Steath to, who begin chewing on getting one the moment they hold mine in their hands. One friend of a friend offered me a grand on the spot for mine and was actually upset when I said "no way - get your own!" White lie? Well, Pup laser grips would've tipped me in the direction of mine a lot sooner in the muse-gun buying process. I almost picked the Kahr 9 at first because they already had lasers made for it. I was yungir and not as ejikatid as I am now! Kahr's a good gun, but I know which one I'd reach for first - every time.

I will keep this up until CT gets their collective act together and takes 8 or 10 of MY Benjamins off my hands!

I did think about sending the emails of all the relatives and their relatives, but just haven't taken the time to do it.  Maybe if we all did that, the number they want would be reached.  Just a thought.

I should add that I've gotten general permission for the names and addresses I've used, though I dont think all I asked really thought I would follow through. I have. I'm really psyched to work on getting a set of these.

I installed a Crimson Trace on my mom's carry gun yesterday (it was her birthday present  ;D ), and now I really want one for my R9. Really really want one.

nase.  Go to this site and complete the form for a request for Crimson Trace to make the Laser Sight for the R9.  You may have already done this, but if not, it may help.

Thanks KJ will do and will have my two son's and wife request also.

Just wondering what it might look like when and if they do make one for the Pup.

Dino.  Chinook first posted this link on page 1, I just brought it forward.  Good idea on the relatives.

Oh I've done it multiple times. I just don't have too much hope that in the near future it'll have any effect.

I mean what's the size of the market here? Do we know about how many Rohrbaughs are out in the wild? Whatever that number is, some fraction would be willing to buy the laser... probably under 10%. It's a depressing number, I think.

I think you're right; however, for those that want the laser grips, just have to keep plugging away, and maybe someday......

Rohrbaugh just produced #5000 on the R9s, so I would say with R9s and the 380s there are less than 8K in circulation.
