Default holo sights

I know that there will be lots of purests out there. I held a 1911 with a Doctor red dot sight OMG it was way cool. OK who out there is doing what I am thinking of?
I looks like the target was so quick and follow up was even better. let me here the thoughts

Was it a race gun, or just a basic 1911? Any pics?

I put a nice red dot sight on my Ruger Mark III, and it's really a nice setup. But, I just couldn't go with one on my 1911. I must be in that "purist" camp mentioned. I did, however, go with some Williams Fire Sights on my 1911. That opened up a bright new world, and target acquisition is much faster, at least for me. Maybe the fiber optic step should be taken before the red dot on the 1911. Just my 2 cents...

I don't think I'd like one on my 1911's. But I tend to carry them and I don't think the sight lends itself to that activity too well. A target/range weapon I can see where it might be nice. I put a 4x Leupold on a MKIII a while back and I love that thing.
