Iâ€™ll be going out to Whidbey Island again this weekend to try my hand at knocking down bowling pins as fast as I am able. Iâ€™m planning on entering into the centerfire classes with my 1911 for the first time in longer than I care to mention and I may just put my .380ACP CZ-83 to the test as well if theyâ€™ll let me.
As for the rimfire class, Iâ€™ve gotten tired of not being able to hit an object an inch and a half wide and five inches tall from 25ft at speed so I went and bought an upgrade for my Ruger 22/45 Target Model.
The front sight is from HIVIZ and is as near to trick an item as I have ever put on a pistol. The sight base is the same size as the stock one, but has two hoops which hold the colored fiber optic insert. It came with six different inserts; a green set and a red set, and each set of colors has three different diameters ranging from 3/32 to 1/8.
Rather cool, if I do say so myself.
But that is not all!
I also ordered a new rear sight insert from One Ragged Hole. It came with two inserts, one that is 7/32 in diameter and one that is 9/32.
I have put the big insert on the front and the small insert on the back. When the pin crosses in front of the sights, BANG, pin goes down.
Hopefully anyway, because I’ll be shooting Mr. Completely’s ‘Flies’ target for the pistol Postal Match later that day too.
