Over time, Matthews turned his inventive mind toward shooting his hobby and passion , hoping to adapt lasers as firearm sights. He eventually designed and patented a laser sight in 1979, and subsequently bought the laser sight business from the Newport board in order to focus exclusively on commercializing the product. The newly formed Laser Products debuted with a handgun sight for the Colt Trooper, following it up with a sight for a Ruger Mini 14. In 1984, the business took a huge leap forward with a phone call from the Los Angeles Police Department s SWAT Team, which wanted to borrow a number of laser sighted shotguns for security during the 1984 Olympic Games. In the years that followed, the technically superb, yet seriously expensive, laser sighted firearms paved the way for future developments, including a weapon mounted flashlight called the SureFire WeaponLight. Laser Products went on to establish itself as the leading manufacturer of rugged, powerful, and compact illumination tools for tactical applications from weapon mounted lights and laser sights to handheld lights powerful and bright enough to qualify as force option tools that could temporarily blind, unbalance, and disorient a threat. Eventually, the SureFire moniker became so synonymous with excellence in handheld illumination tools that the company changed its name to SureFire LLC.
