With a Range Officer in your hand, you now have the right to yell, "Commence Firing!!!" whenever you get to the line.

I'd like to hear what you think of the sights, which have no little white dots.

That would be a dream. I long to go shoot on someone's property again, where I can take my time, shoot the S**t and some targets.

Heh, actually, I'll be replacing those as soon as I can.

I also plan to replace the grips with some nice ones that have my old Army unit crest on them.

So here I am firing my new Range Officer for the first time. She was a dream to shoot and I was hitting consistently lower left of center throughout the day.

I ran about 200 rounds through her without a hitch.

Wrap it around the front of the grip rather than cupping the bottom?

I tried painting the wife's sights and that looked awful and didn't really help much. Looking to meprolight sights eventually.

Yup wrap it as high as u can get it I put my support hand high to the point tht my thum is riding the slide it like push with ur trigger hand and pulling back with ur support hand with thums inline

And I understand I would change the sights to I put fiber optic on my ro but whn I got it I put alittle whiteout on front sight it help just apply alittle but brush it same way to grooves r on sight
