    Default Side mirror

    Is the LI just as effective on a laser shot from a side mirror as a normal direct hit? Saw a cop sitting at bottom of overpass shooting an Ultralyte in his side mirror at cars cresting the overpass.

    Should be - provided the mirror is flat, and clean. We used to test missile seekers using a moving mirror as opposed to moving the entire seeker head (less weight, easier to modify)

    Strange that he was doing it with an Ultralyte. Was he holding the gun sideways, gangsta style? It is usually not possible to shoot sideview mirror shots with an over/under gun like the Ultralyte or Laser Atlanta, unless you're shooting a very tall, truck-style mirror.

    Regardless, if he can get a reading, it's as good as a reading shot without the mirror.
