The 2011 Shooting Industry Academy includes the C5L from Viridian Green Lasers. Every year the Shooting Industry Academy looks for companies and their products to nominate for categories such as Accessory of the Year, Self-Defense Product, Hunting Product and Optic of the Year. Companies such as Leupold, Viridian Green Lasers and Bushnell. Viridian Green Lasers is proud of their C5L laser as the world’s only subcompact laser available. Many users prefer the green laser over the red because the green is easier to see during daylight hours.
