    Spent a few minutes installing my new slide cover plate today from Fixxer Inc. install was easy with no special tools. Some before and after pics. Got this one off Amazon for $9.99. Let's see yours.

    I meant show pics if you have "them". Stupid auto correct.

    I prefer to not have anything distracting on the back of my slide. They look cool, but can they adversly affect your shooting? I think so.

    Guess I'll just have to put a bunch more rounds through it to see if I can still focus on the front sight....shucks

    Range work is one thing. Stress shooting is an entirely different game.

    I don't claim to know about "stress shootings". If either of you have experience with this I will gladly take that into consideration. I have always felt that if I am using my nightstand gun, other than practice, I probably won't even have time to acquire a good site picture anyway. In my home this would be from a distance inside of 10 yrds and I will be much more distracted by the deadly threat than my cover plate.

    If you're worried about ever being in a live fire situation inside your home I would suggest purchasing a lasersight the one I would recommend would be Crimson trace as they can be installed by yourself and come perfectly sighted to 20-25 feet however even if you're shooting 30 to 50 feet your shot won't be off by more than an inch and a half... and the main advantage to a Crimson trace lasersight is the activation button is on the back of the handle so as soon as you grip the gun it activates the laser which will give you the extra second or two that you would normally need to take aim; which in a "shootout" scenario could mean the difference between life and death... and in case you're wondering I speak from personal experience.

    Thanks for the post Jedi. I have a small laserlyte mounted on the rail. I do find it is not as easy to turn on as I would have hoped because the buttons are so small. I usually end up using my support hand thumb to activate when I practice. I hope I never need to put that red dot one someone but I feel it could be very useful if needed.

    Crimson Trace laser

    The main reason Crimson trace laser's are so excellent is because the button is on the back handgrip of the gun so as soon as you grip it the lasers on. there's no button to fumble with so even in a live fire situation you can literally shoot from any position without needing to acquire conventional aim (using the sights) and a split-second can literally mean the difference between life and death

    Unfortunately I've been in a shoot out (defending my home and loved ones) twice and the last time against 2 armed individuals carrying 9mm's with hollow point rounds. Fortunately I was carrying my Glock 22 (.40 cal) with FMJ rounds which sent them running when they realized they were WAY out gunned. Granted I live in E. Oakland, CA so the average robber isn't too bright...

    I'm not sure how "fortunate" or "unfortunate" I have been, but I have only had to Draw a Gun 3 times since leaving the Service, and while in Service, 90% of "Fire" incidents I was involved in, were from "Behind The Canopy & Controls" of Aircraft....
    I'm more "upset" that Crime has even found it's was to our Lovely Area of Northern Arizona. We had what could have been an Attempted "push-in" here the Friday before X-mas,..and talking to other Owners here, It's not the first time..

    Thank you for your service!

    I would say, especially considering you have military training, that you're very fortunate because if the situation arises you have the training to do what needs to be done. for a while I lived in Prescott Arizona however due to work reasons ended up in the bay area California after only a month. I'm wondering what you meant when you said a "push in"...and I'm sorry to hear about crime encroaching on your area...That truly saddens me as it's a beautiful area.

    The reason I know they were firing 9 mm hollow points is because as they were running away they were firing randomly over their shoulder and got off about five rounds three of which I was able to recover because they didn't even penetrate my drywall... whereas my 40 caliber Glock 22 shooting FMJ rounds went through my front door which is 3 inches of solind oak like a hot knife through butter...
