If I ever buy another handgun, it'll be this one: Lionheart LH9N with the Novak sights



But right now, I'm probably going to get a Mossberg 500 Home Defense, put on a Big Dot bead sight, Elite Tactical Advantage safety, Surefire forend, Hogue 12" LOP stock with a Limbsaver recoil pad. No side saddle to save one weight. I want it lightweight and ambidextrous for Jody (she's a lefty)

Forgot to mention in my previous post, all my long guns have a BlueForceGear Kryptek Typhon 2-to-1 sling. The rifles are set up for two point, the shotgun is a one point sling around the grip

I love all the technical shit, but boy am I glad I live in UK.  My Spud Gun is considered extreme here.....

Oh, I know which ones you're talking about. They're like Straight 8's

After using the Big Dot's for awhile, I can't go back to anything with a notch. On quick draws or shooting while moving, I can lose sight of my front sight behind the panels and it irritates me

Not trying to convert, just sharing what works for me

Almost exactly like straight 8s.
Yeah, I actually considered that when I was shopping and thought the BD seemed like the best option in tactical terms. It's kind of a common sense design.

My sights assume that you're going to be somewhat target-acquired right away (as do the Glock factory sights, which I'm OK with), and while that may be the case for some, I'm not positive yet if that's how I am. I think I usually frame it up somewhat within the "U" because I consistently lock out my arm and just point where I want to shoot but we will see after some drills.

So I think you're right, but I'll see how I feel with these.
Think it, be it.

Please follow up with your thoughts

I use a similar stance as you, squared off, arms locked out. Shooting on the move or even unholstering fast can mess up my sight picture with notched sights

Yep will do. I need to find a place I can do moving drills but what you're saying about notches actually struck me during the shopping process and makes a lot of sense.

Most police departments use outdoor ranges to practice drills on the move. If you can find out which one they use that's a good start. Or you can take a defensive shooting course

Down this way we can't even get knifes into the country. It's all about the biggest spoon here.

Snowy, if you join a range and shoot a few comps a year you can legally get just about any pistols you want in Australia, but you'll pay through the nose for the privilege compared to our American cousins.  It's all about having a valid reason (i.e. competition shooting therefore you need a handgun), so with the right licence it might actually be easier to get a handgun than a knife!

i'm trying so hard to keep up with all the technical stuff. considering that 2 countries i live in don't have much gun freedom or none at all. the only few guns are rifles i've ever used are in the army and this is one of my favourite.

the m110 semi auto sniper. really love the sighting accuracy and firepower of this. better than the previous steyr ssg 69. really miss the feel of live firing.
