I realized last night that I need to start looking at option for a home defense handgun with a picatinny rail. I had a disturbance in the basement I could not figure out, and realized I had no way to turn on the light down there without actually going down the stairs, which means I would be silhouetted very nicely from the light coming in the window. (Solution was a non-event involving some wind and an improperly closed door, but this house has some tactical disadvantages.)
Anyway, I am interested in the Springfield Operator, or one of the polymer frame autos perhaps. Anyone have one of these semi's with a built in picattiny that can attest to reliability, etc, etc?
Heh, this is particularly embarrassing for me as I have spent the last year relentlessly making fun of a buddies Springfield Operator; A 1911 with a rail? What was he thinking, right?
