Re: Thread Split - Usefulness of Night Sights

do you use a weapon mounted light? I don't; I keep a light on my night stand, but I wouldn't utilize it except in a rare circumstance. When you wake up with fully dilated eyes, I see a flashlight as more of a liability than an asset because your eyes are fully dilated but the intruder's are not. A ...

Re: Thread Split - Usefulness of Night Sights

One situation will afford more time than another. Typically if awakened by the Proverbial "bump in the night", you'll be walking around in a dark house looking for the source of the bump. If placed in this position I want every possible advantage that can be had within reasonable cost. Ni...

I look forward to your updates as you continue to test it. If you'll do as I suggest and test it literally in the middle of the night after you just wake up, I'm confident that you'll see the benefit. Do you sleep in a totally dark room?

Re: Thread Split - Usefulness of Night Sights

Re: USPc 45 - SS?

Here is my 2 cents since i own both. I love all my HKs but to me, the SS guns are more "collectors" pieces. They certainly could work as a defensive tool, dont get me wrong. HK does not put many out any more and that is were i have classified them in my collection. I've had mine out to the...

Re: Stolen gun DB?

All you can really do is get the SN from the seller and have your local LEOs run it. Even at that point, it's only going it show up if it has reported to the po-po.

Feel the situation out and listen to your gut.
