    I'm going to stick with a small optic. Absent binocular vision I'm unable to fuse left and right eye imagery and the FOV (field of view) of the optic, itself, is too small to support quick target...

    Appreciate the input. I'm going to the range today and set up more of a controlled experiment: three equally-space targets at the same distance. I can time left-to-right and right-to-left with the...

    I understood Kimber was coming out with a new model with that classic well-worn appearance. Is that pre-production? How did you score that thing? I may switch from my intended purchase of a...

    I get the 1911 advantage for nearly stock guns, but is running DA/SA in USPSA with a really great SA trigger at a disadvantage with just one DA trigger pull? USPSA tweaks rules (e.g., weight...

    I suspect the answer is "no" versus the tricked out guns in those two divisions. If that's the case why maintain a separate, small division? I'm more interested in steel challenge and have aged out...

    Don't know Mark but he has well-deserved fans. It's a sad commentary on our youth that he couldn't find an apprentice to take over the business. Seems like a great opportunity.

    Vision - being old sucks

    10 months after my last eye exam I noticed a vision change in my left eye when shooting pistol. My right eye, the one with the bionic lens, still had good iron sight focus, but the left eye distant...

    I don't know offhand what striker fired handguns use a bushing so I suppose the bull barrel is just therefore heavier for purpose of heat dissipation or reduced recoil? It's interesting that the Sig...

    Couldn't agree more. Don't know what Kimber was thinking with those sights. We had very little choice when in CA and as it was the Kimbers had to be converted from 38 Super for my wife.
