Drawing from a holster isn't something I practice but I see from your review that was important to you. Good review.
The laser I am considering does protrude from the barrel but for my intended use I don't think that is a problem. I also like the range of calibers it will work with. Won't work with my 22 revolver but you can't have everything.
Have a great day!
