Re: Colt New Agent
The trench sights are nice for a barrel that short
and a gun that nice, and for the reason you would have it.
[that I have it, and bought purposely for that reason]
The absolute smoothness of draw is 'always' guaranteed.
It is NOT my range gun.....at least, not one of my
'go to' range guns....but is shot regularly....to stay in tune
with it as a superb SD 1911 platform.....
My reason is simple, and in my old feeble mind/way of thinking,
that a scenario to protect myself in a dark environment, even with
my Novak's, or my XS sights, or trijicon's.....I am not gonna spend
any time drawing a bead on some asshole that wishes to harm me......
I want to rely on the most efficient means available to me, to trust
my own practice/experience/skill to point and shoot and defer the danger
confronting me in the most minimal amount of time.....
It may be tenths of one hundredths of seconds difference in a small
snag on the holster if I have [gun] sights that may snag or
may not, but with trench sights.....there is no chance...to any
The hardest part to comprehend....to make the choice between the
two aforementioned weapons, is that we, humans, are creatures of habit.
We have determined that sights make us more accurate, therefore
the higher quality sights we implore, the more accurate we become.
Then we go shoot some our J-framed snubbies, find favor in one, start
loving on her, and find we have achieved accuracy enough to boast about,
and forget she 'ain't got no' adjustable fancy sights.......
We all know this, we just some have forgotten.......[?]
It ain't the gun.....It's the gunny.......!!!!!
