View Full Version : Adjustable Sights
I read in a course review by DocGKR that you prefer adjustable sights on handguns, even on the ones you carried at work when you were on active duty. Can you elaborate on which ones you chose and why you chose them?
Also, do you ever run courses on the West Coast?
Ha. I am chuckling while I read this as it seems to be a 'Hot Topic' debate issue.
I run Bo-mar adjustable sights on all of my handguns. I ran them on my work gun for about a decade and never had an issue. I've run drop tests on them (Unintentionally) several times as well.
If I fall off of zero, I can make a quick adjustment. I like the crispness of the sight picture and they provide me with a smidgeon more sight radius, especially on my G-17 (What?!).
Directly before I retired, I earned 'Distinguished Pistol Shot' and an EIC badge. I earned my LEG points in National match courses of fire. In a National Match course of fire, shooters fire strong hand from the 25 as well as the 50 yard lines. The .45 round drops off significantly from the 50 to the target. It was convenient to add four clicks to the rear sight to put me on target at that range. I'd never do that tactically but it is comforting to know that I can do it administratively.
It's a personal choice for which I cannot supply an ounce of empirical data.
Yes I do run courses on the West coast. My next one will be in March. Chino, CA I believe.
Thanks for the question.
Hey, Mac, what's your take on night sights on pistols?
