    Um, yes you CAN. If you remove emotional attachment to an inanimate object and just see them as a TOOL for getting a serious job done. I'm sure you've heard the quote, "1911s are what you show your friends...Glocks are what you show your enemies..."

I didn't even use a vice and just hung the back off my wooden work bench and tapped it off.

    What kind of sights? Are they actually from Trijicon? Trijicon farms their lamps out to other manufacturers...
    Doesn't matter. You'll still get a gunsmith to slip and rake a gouge in your gun. Pinch pins are not easy. If the guy hasn't been so good to me in the past (instant service, free repairs, etc). I'd have been more pissed.

    "I have Galco, Serpa, DeSantis, Kydex, but my favorite IWB, the one I carry several guns with, the ones I've used EDC for 4 years now, the one I find most comfortable, adjustable, and concealable......costs $10. I have one for every gun and doubles for ones I carry a lot. Ace Case. By far, the best bargain in holsters."

    Kudos Yankeejib I have been saying this for a while, I have several of these also and they have held up great for me too!

    Well, that guy's an idiot. He could have easily blended that mark out. Besides, who the heck was talking about punch/roll pins anyway? We were discussing the drifting of rear sights.

    I was at a gun show last month trying to decide between a used 26 and a used 19. I took the plunge and bought 'em both. The only downside to that is that I need to focus on one of them to get more comfortable with instead of going back and forth. I am thinking about a 30SF that is a bit smaller than the 19 but a little bit wider.
