Default Thanks for the input.

First, I would like to thank all who have posted input to my dilema. I think what I was thinking was any firearm I might own could possibly be used for self defence. That said I was thinking the sites on the R.O. would be bulky and in darkness, since they dont have illumination or three dot sites just hard to deal with. Maybe I could swap sites. Anyway, I am still leaning to the R.O.
Thanks again for all input, and still looking forward to more.

Brownells is your friend. They have sights for sale.

You may be trying to fit a square peg in a round hole, the trade off between a competition pistol and a carry gun is, of course, ease of concealment. In my opinion you risk wasting some money if you buy a Range Officer and modify it to a carry gun. There are numerous alternatives, even from Springfield, that are purpose built carry guns and they are just as accurate as the RO. SA seems to be heading down the road towards marketing out-of-the-box competion guns, first with the RO and most recently with the new 5" XDm. Just my opinion, YMMV.
