Lightweight Wonder?

As Richard and Jason were discussing the perfect packing gun for woods bumming or backup, a few things were mentioned to make the “perfect single-seven” more convenient and user friendly.

Starting with a shorter 4-5/8" barrel, along with an aluminum grip frame, these weight-shaving tweaks will help prevent PPS (pants pull-down syndrome). Something happens to us men as we, uh … mature. Our hips narrow as our bellies blossom, making our belts want to slide down with the whole shebang, even when lugging a single-six/seven gun around.

“Experienced” eyes make our front sight appear fuzzy, as we lose the ability to bring it into sharp focus. The ability to line up three different focal planes gets pretty darn tough too, as our eyes lock-on either the rear sight or target, instead of the front sight.
