Thanks guys! I knew I could get the info I needed out of this group.

Cane, the wife has been shooting a lot of years, but if I handed her a pistol without sights......well at least there wouldn't be jagged edges.
The Defender does look good. But at $1015 MSRP I would need to find a deal or a good used.

Hoss, thanks. Didn't know that RIA had Commander/Officer sized options.

The Springer Loaded is still a bit rich for my pocket unless I can find a deal used.

Kimbers are also usually, even used, a bit too much $ for my wallet.

Well, I now have more options to check out.

Thanks,
Walt

I completely disagree.

A rookie has no habits to break.

And a 3" mouse gun is made for point shooting.

Its not a gold cup.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Kind of hard to argue with that

I just got a Dan Wesson Guardian, a commander-sized 1911 in 9mm. Allow frame, light weight and well designed for carry. And it's a gorgeous gun!!

i agree with Cane on this. the New Agent is about concealment, not target shooting. it's a pistol designed for up close and personal, which is what an attack on your person would be. up close and personal, sights will be useless and if you are ever in that situation, and are determined to use sights, you will probably end up dead. practice with a pistol like the New Agent should be 5 yards or less, which is what it's designed for.

Incorrect. Not practicing enough is the fastest way to miss.

If you're practicing solely for self-defense, then point shooting is what you should be doing. If you're practicing for competition type shooting, then that's another story.

I guarantee you anything on this planet, that if you were ever in a situation where you had to shoot someone to defend your life, the front sight of your pistol is the last place your eyes are gonna be. There is exactly one thing you will be looking at, and that is the threat.

If you consider yourself a decent shooter and can't point shoot, then you need more practice.
