crazy thoughts & observations
Well, after some time shooting handguns, purchasing and adding new ones to my collection, and falling in love with shooting in local competitions, I came to have some thoughts and observations..Something like you can call food for thoughts..I am sure that so many of the shooters in this forum will agree on some of what I am about to post and probably will even add more of their own observations as well..so feel free..get it out.
First: Night sights...OK, they are cool for HD/SD at night, but if it is so dark that you can't see the bad guy how would a glowing dot in the dark help..OK I am sarcastic here, but really night sights are not white or bright enough for day shooting..I have night sights on all my guns except for my Glock 17, and guess what, I love its big white front sight dot in day time both at indoors and outdoors ranges..Something for the night sight manufacturers to think about..They have to make night sights that should be well visible during the day too..things that makes you go "hmmm..?"..I know, I know, one manufcturer has this white solid line around the luminous dot, but still not enough..The engineers should put their head together and come up with a universal DAY/NIGHT sights.
Second: what the heck is it with the bad smelling cleaning sprays and lubing fluids...Can't the chemical engineers add some modifiers to these smells..May be a smart chemical engineer should come up with an idea of a personalized gun conditioner which can be applied at the gun to protect from rust and that will serve as a dust repellant and smells nice (like BRUT aftershave or OLDSPICE, you know..something that overrides the bad smell of lubricants).. OK..I think criticism will break loose on me after this suggestion. Again this is just a thought..And for you girls out there before you jump on the criticizing wagon, the gun conditioner should come with smells that girls like ..i don't what to recommend, but I am sure the manufacturers should do their research right..
Third: People that work in gunshops must pass a customer-friendly exam..people come to these shops expecting good custom friendly service..Some workers act as if they are star track commander and answers your question with a nose-up attitude..This is bad for business and persnally i don't like it..I like people who are working around gun to be friendly and humurous..Experience and knowing their products is a must too.
Well that was my 2 cents .. if I remember anything else, I'll post it.
