Laser Bore Sight Loan Program
Laser Bore Sights (LBS) are utilized to zero your handgun by placing the bore sight into the breech of your handgun. The projected laser point indicates the alignment of the barrel of the handgun.
The LBS projected laser point is then used as a reference to align the open sights, a scope, red dot, or a laser mounted on the gun, to the barrel alignment.

Two techniques are utilized to zero a handgun:
Zero at a particular distance, i.e., 5yds, 7yds, 10yds, etc. The cross hairs on a scope or red dot are set to match the barrel alignment laser point at a specific distance. The problem with this alignment is that at a distance shorter than the point of zero, the POA will be below the POI and at a distance greater than the zero distance the POA will be higher than the POI.
If you are zeroing your gun for Bullseye League competition, set it for a fixed distance of 17 yards (50 ft)
When aligning a laser, mounted on a gun, it is often aligned parallel to the barrel so the offset between the Point of Impact (POI) and the Point of Aim (POA) are always offset by the same distance at any distance. For example, measure the distance between the center of the barrel and the laser at the handgun. That distance is typically from 1 inch to 1.5 inches. Then, shining the bore laser and gun laser on an object at some distance, 10-15yds, align the gun laser so that it is offset the same distance and direction from the bore laser as was measured at the muzzle. With this alignment, you know the the POA is ALWAYS a fixed distance below the POI at any distance.
The laser bore sights as shown above are activated by unscrewing the back of the unit and inserting two of the 393/309 batteries. Put the batteries into the bore sight body with the flat (positive +) side facing the battery cap. Of course, do not forget to remove the batteries after aligning the gun.
The club has purchased a range of different caliber laser bore sights to be loaned to members only.
The sights available are:
To borrow a laser bore sight, see the Shoot Manager at any club shooting event. The Shoot Manager has a complete set of laser bore sights for all common calibers.
If you need assistance, see the club instructor. The RSO will not be able to assist.
