Problem w/ collision

I have a laser object and the ground object.  Both have box colliders and the laser has a rigidbody.  No matter what I do, Unity can’t seem to detect the collision between them.  Here’s my code:

 void OnCollisionEnter (Collision other){
 if (other.gameObject.tag == "ground") {
 Debug.Log ("Laser IS touching ground");
 //DestroyObject (this.gameObject);
 } else {
 Debug.Log ("laser NOT touching ground");

Does anybody have any ideas?

Maybe use Triggers instead?

The problem using triggers is that the player passes through the ground object.

You could use one trigger and one collider, (just make the trigger a small amount bigger.

An other thing you could do is, using raycast to detect the ground.

Okay, so I used triggers on the laser instead, and it works fine.  Thank You for your help!
