Carryguns are not by neccessity carried ALL OF THE TIME. They exist for when that need arises. I do have a Kimber UltraCarry. But, that fact aside, if I felt I needed to be armed, I'd carry a Governemt Model. If I have the need, the GM will be there, ALL OF THE TIME. The UltraCarry does makes a nice BU. But more likely there will be a 12 gauge pump close by. Which is a much more reliable stopper.bigboyhf said:It has to be of size and weight for you that will lend itself to being carried all the time. If you don't have your gun with you, it doesn't matter how reliable, accurate etc it is. Of course those things would be next in line...
The CDP line is far from "dehorned" - but rather sports the full melt treatment that couldn't get any slicker. For a nice dehorned pistol, check out the Kobra Carry. Peoblem with my CDP is that I need special holsters for it as it can prove a tad too loose in any other standard or even dehorned rig.Shootalot said:Like most, if not all, I will not carry a gun that I don't know by experience will function EVERY time the trigger is pulled. :rock:
I do think sights are sometimes overrated as, even though I have not used my 1911 in a life or death situation, one may not even have the opportunity to use the sights before you need to pull the trigger. :hrm:
That being said, when I was taking a low light shooting class a couple of years ago the instructor was thinking about putting tape over my night sights so I couldn't shoot so well in the dark. Excuse me but isn't hitting what I'm aiming at in the dark the reason I have night sights to begin with? :scratch:
My Kimber Pro CDP II has the 'carry bevel treatment' to round and blend the edges for carrying. (dehorned). The problem I see is the slide serrations are also smoothed down. This makes the slide difficult to grasp and rack without slippage if there is any lubricant on the slide.
The question I keep asking myself is, heaven forbid, what if the lubricant on the slide effecting the operation is my own blood?
