The Friday Before Labor Day


I think I'm having a "can't cope" attack. I've forgotten how much I hate dealing with doctors, hospitals and such, which actually makes me a lucky person since I haven't had to do it very much.

I think it's great that USPSA has created a new division, Carry Optics.  I believe this is absolutely the right time for this division, as self-defense handguns will be moving more and more toward red dot optics, and I applaud USPSA Prez Phil Strader's actions in using it forward.


I will definitely be shooting this division, probably initially with a G19/RMR set-up, but my goal is to move to a Sig Sauer 320 Carry, also with an RMR...that's a little ways down the line. I want to talk to Sigmeister Bruce Gray about the plan before I go forward. There's a couple of other options to consider as well.

I'ms also talking to Eric Galloway about a red dot install on my Kahr CW-9...here's a pix of the Galloway mount on a CM-9:

 
Another option I'm looking at are the new generation Gen2 Premium TP-9s that come optic-ready with high sights from Kahr. The TP9s are awesome pistols, slightly shorter than a G19, a wee bit longer in the butt and lighter.:

Maybe Glock will now release G17 and G19 MOS models.

Glick already released the G-40, A 10mm with 6 inch barrel And optic sight (I forget what kind) bringing hand gun hunting into the 21st century .
Now that we are getting cobbled together versions the next step is a pistol that incorporates an optic sight right from the design stage.

Too late. CZ's are already ready to dominate with optics-ready versions of the P-09, and Hitler's upset about this as well :D : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-80Kw0rSBtw

Oh lordy, that Hitler video is priceless!

No way, I'll keep the red dots on the AR's. Heck, I don't even shoot Tac Optics in 3 Gun, much less optics on a pistol.

It's interesting, though, that USPSA/IDPA are catching up with the realities of the concealed carry/tactical world, rather than the tactical world taking their cues from the competition world.

Which speaks volumes about how practical shooting organizations have kept pace with today's shooting culture.

Besides, I suck so much, rather than drop$2k on a new gun and red dot, I'd get FAR more benefit from $2k worth of ammo, match fees and training. A Class Poduction is my goal right now.

G40 is a swing and a bunt. No support for co_witnessed irons.

Michael, who would you trust to mill the slide on a 320 for a red dot?
