During a recent Fighting Pistol Class I had mentioned several pieces of gear that I use or have seen used that really worked. Most of the guys did not have note books and pens to record the information so I am going to post some of them and their highlights. When it comes to concealed carry holsters, magazine carriers, flash lights, sights and other gear if we are not careful we will spend atleast as much as the gun cost on gear that just looked cool or we thought would work only to find out it is not what we needed or wanted. Holsters: There are many and they are chosen for as many reasons. I prefer IWB and my choices are anything by Alessi or Milt Sparks. The Alessi is hard to come by but if you find one jump on it. The Milt Sparks is a bit easier to get but if it is for something other than a Glock 17/19, 23/22, 1911 platforms you will have to wait. I currently have a holster on order from Sparks that has a 24 week waiting period, these holsters are not mass produced but made when you order them. If you go to http://www.brownells.com/aspx/NS/store/ ... 0sparks&s= you will see the leather versions of the Sparks Summer Special II, this is my choice for every day carry (EDC). It has a metal re-enforced opening for easy one handed holstering, comfortable and good retention. This holster will last you for YEARS!!!! If you have a gun on a different platform (SIG, HK or something like that) or chose a outside the waist band you can go here www.miltsparks.com and take a look around. The one review I wrote recently on the Maverick Holster which is here http://firearmz.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=522 is also a good choice. If Kevin adds the sewn in sight rails it will be a much better selection. SIGHTS: Sights are used for more than just aiming with in a tactical situation and special care should be taken in choosing them. I currently have three different sets of sights on about 12 pistols. Sevigny Carry, I really like these sights for conventional type sights. They have a .145 opening and a .125 front, this offers good light on both sides of the front blade in the rear for precise shooting. They are available with tritium inserts or plain. They are available at http://www.mle-shootingsports.com/. My sights that I carry for EDC on my G19 are XS Big Dots. I like these for rapid front sight acquisition. You simply lay that BD in the shallow V in the rear, cover what you want to hit and press the trigger. Very fast!!!!! We sell the XS Big Dots and they are $125.00 with tritium front and rear, and less for non-triium. 10-8 Sights are on both 1911â€™s. They are strong and durable, they can be gotten in different openings in the rear for you preference. They are available at http://www.10-8performance.com/id14.html or http://www.bravocompanyusa.com/10-8-Per ... s-s/80.htm. Tritium or not?: This is the question; my preference is YES, especially on the front. I do not worry so much about the rear; just donâ€™t see a real need for them. If I do opt for them (and I do have them on some guns) I like the single dot in the Heine Straight Eight Design. The rear insert needs to be smaller and dimmer that the front so that they are distinguishable. Low Profile: Most low profile sights are advertised as snag free, what a joke this gimmick has been. Look at a set of Heine or Novaks and the front of the sights are really aero dynamic and smooth, well we are snag free in the wrong freaking direction. We need a hook or square on the front of the sight so that we can hook the rear sight on a belt, holster or similar object to perform one handed stoppages and reloads. The snag free needs to be described at rounded edges to prevent cutting the hand and clothing. Nothing really snag free about them. This is just an overall high light and if you have any questions just post them.
