you are so on point! And your comment "sights are for the uninformed" rings a loud bell. I am getting a little "over the hill" at this point. A bit out of shape. Slower... I have never tactically trained. Im not or ever have been a law enforcement official and I dont get in public or crowded settings too much. Maybe when I go to Walmart... but I see I would greatly up my chances if ever needed if I set into a program to optimize my skills and did it enough to assure myself these skills would dominate in stress filled situations.I have been looking on the net for tactical method in which the 1911 would shine. Point and shoot method seems like it is excluded and I simply have not run up on any apprach which lends itself to my situation. Even revolvers seem excluded form the point and shoot method unless one has very small hands. Any direction from an experienced shooter for me?Geoff in East TennesseeNO SPELL CHECK???
