    Post1911 why i HATE post/pin in front sights/ARRG!

    now people ask me why i like those mall-ninja type of slides with the front and back dovetails--


    today i was test firing my 10mm/45acp government conversion slide with a pinned in hi-vis fiber optic sight.

    on the third shot i saw a can explode and a green fiber optic headed down range at about 600 miles per hour!

    the damn pistol slide functions fine -- i guess without a front sight i'm gonna have to do like hoppalong cassidy or the cisco kid--LOL

    it is sort of my fault -- i didn't have the staked in properly --although it lasted for years eventually the staked part of the pin broke off.

    sending the fiber optic downrange--

    i like fiber optics --provided thir dovetailed in--
