    Well, there is some truth to that. We"ll take for granted that the gun shoots where it is pointed, better sights and a better trigger will assist in making them a better marksman. Very difficult for someone to become a better marksman if the trigger pull is like 10 miles of bad road and they can't see the sights.

    Kimber. Yeah. I can relate to that. Bought the Solo when it first came out just so I could have it to make grips. Since it was in demand at the time, I ended up getting suckered into buying their, shall we say, custom shop model with the laser grips at $1200. Worst pistol in my possession. Couldn't get it to shoot reliably with any ammo, nasty recoil and just down right clumsy to shoot. On the up side, I made and sold plenty of grips for a few years before that model dropped off the planet.

    Oh, by the way, if you see my Solo on the classifieds, disregard the above please.

    oh i get it, just not a fan of spending as much on gun upgrades as i did on shooter, and i do like a nice trigger if one can be achieved without cashing in the retirement fund. but i try to assimilate with the newbie best i can, if its gonna be a carry, well then, i work harder at it, and then after that, if i need to make some changes and its not $$$$$ heavy i do it by all means.

    and if i build something as in an ar or ak, or fal, or anything, i tend to gravitate towards what i would like them to be like, but don't take a unit and just nilly willy make changes to accommodate the new shiney syndrone
    happy days smucketts, gonna be a warm one.

    I seldom alter handguns but I have added ghost connectors to all Mrs. Flash's Glocks and I've gotten aftermarket grips on a handful of handguns I've owned over the years plus I got one trigger job done. That's about it for me.
