    soup'd up killing device made to make killing easier.
    I think I would alter that statement and say ''devices to better enhance the defence potential'' of the piece. Further to which I'd say it would also be a very relevant (associated) claim to make, to say that said devices also significantly decrease the likelehood of shots going to innocent parties thru inaccuracy.

    All in all - if my piece is gonna get ''criticized'' once taken away, because of night sights, CT grips etc ... I will defend those in just this way. I would stress the word ''responsibility'' a great deal.

    I'd certainly have a much harder job explaining away use of a junker like Raven, Jennings etc!

    P95, I can't dispute your take on this, but I'd have to say that every pro-gun lawyer I know (and I know several) or have spoken with about this topic has agreed that it's much easier to defend in court if you're carrying a stock gun with no custom mods or add-ons.

    It's much easier for the prosecution to paint you as a blood-thirsty gun-totin killer if you've made mods that they can paint as "making it easier and more efficient to kill". A good pro-gun lawyer, armed with experience and possibly an expert witness or three can definitely refute most if not all of the prosecutions lies and exaggerations, but it aint' gonna be cheap. There's no sense in carrying a piece of crap gun for self defense, no doubt. Buy a 1911, a Glock, a Kahr, a Sig, a HK, a S&W, a Ruger, a Springfield, buy a reliable brand, break it in good with several hundred rounds, but fer gawshsakes, try to avoid doing anything to the gun that makes it easier for our enemies to convict you for defending yourself. I'd say night sights and a tactical rail-light are about the max that you can safely add without crossing into dangerous legal territory.

    madman, what mods would cross the line??? I like mag wells, and I have not gone the route of Crimson trace grips, but I have several friends that do like them.

    That's the point I was trying to convey. Thanks for clarifying.

    Madman - points taken. I guess there is a sorta ''middle ground'' but as APachon mentions - I wonder where the divide is - albeit perhaps too - a blurry divide and depending much on who is doing the assessing!

    My 226 is stock - it just has the SIG Trijicon sights and I added the CT's. I also have CT's on my SP-101.
