I have wished for many years to be able to have time to do more than just shoot my guns. Now that I'm retired I had a little discretionary cash and bought a sight pusher and a TFX Tru-Glo night sight and replaced the sights on a XD45, I also put a trigger kit that lightened the pull to 4+ pounds with very little take up and no over travel. Now if my back would just let me stand without too much pain so that I can shoot straight (that's my new excuse and I'm sticking to it). I really want to see how well it shoots. It's been so much fun doing it that I'm looking for other pistols, but no one makes sights ortrigger kits for Taurus and they're the only range guns I have. I don't touch my carry guns although I might change a sight on my mod2 XD.

Bandaidman, when I want to check zero on my guns I use a sandbag. I find it takes the wiggle our of my aim. Retirement brings on time for extra things we never could do before. Enjoy your retirement.

I also have the desire to get better sights installed on some of my carry guns, however I want a good smith to do the job. I don't have the tools to do a good job.

And now you’ll have plenty of time to practice that all-important spleen shot...
