    Thank you

    A week or two ago I asked about a problem I had with the front sight on my Colt Mustang. I could hardly see it.

    Someone (and I apologize for not going back to find the individual) made a very good point about it being a close in combat gun and I should just look past the front sight, point and fire.

    Well, I tried that at the range at 3 and 5 yards---I just ignored the rear sight and pointed while looking past the front sight.

    To my absolute amazement, everything hit within the target zone.

    So, thanks to whoever made the suggestion. I appreciate the thoughtfulness and especially appreciate having a good reason to not monkey with the front sight on that particular gun.

    Bullseye is bullseye - combat is combat - and n'ere the twain shall meet

    Well not much anyways! I have become ever more of the opinion that sights at close quarters can be more of a hindrance than help - in as much as, if we let ourselves be too focussed on aquiring a sight picture, we may just have lost an edge that could have saved our bacon!

    For a naturally pointing gun for you, it will happen all the time!

    You learned the most important lesson for self defense shooting at close ranges.
