Default better without the rear sight...

so i decide to take my springfield 1911-A1 to the range today along with my high standard military HD 22. the HD shoots fine with some amazing groups for such an old handgun with even the crappiest ammo in my range bag. i get the 1911 out and start cranking off some 230grn FMJ and the freekin rear site comes off. now im gonna have to go re-sight in and find someone to pin the thing in place once i got it where i want it.

so i load up a second mag sans rear sight just to see what happens and i start shooting a better group WITHOUT it than i did with...

perfect end to a crappy day.
