The 1911 is not new but the Propoint site is. I haven't had a chance to shoot it yet but it should be fun!



I'm not left handed, I just couldn't handle the camera with my left. ;)
It has 11 brightness settings and 4 dot sizes.

Is that your carry piece, Clint? :)

Man I have a few Colt Pythons with regular scopes mounted on them and have never even fired them. I'm curious how I would like shooting like that. I do like the aimpoint style scopes, though. I have a S&W 629 Hunter that has an integral weaver rail that would be great with an aimpoint scope on it.

I guess as my eyes get older (along with the rest of me), I may be shifting more and more over to optical sights on my guns.

The only thing that worries me about these things is that I fear the batteries in them. I have a habit of leaving stuff laying around for long periods of time, only to find the batteries exploded and ruining whatever they were in. I've had to throw away more flashlights than I could ever remember because of swelled and leaking batteries....

Yeah, in a suit case!

It should be fun to play with but I really don't care for all that bulk hanging out there. I think if I did any competition shooting, I'd opt for a larger tube. 35 mm takes a bit to bring in if you're in a hurry.

My dad has a 10/22 with an aimpoint scope and he uses it during rabbit season up here and the batteries would die within 2-3 hours of being out in the cold. So a friend of ours took the gun drilled a tiny hole next to the barrel down into the butt of the stock hollowed out a bit behind the butt plate and hooked it up to run of 2 AAA batteries. Now he has no problems with it in the cold and snow.

Very nice looking "toy" Clint!
