    Took the Hi-Point JHP 45acp out today to take 3 shots.

    I had been point shooting since the only sight I had was the peep; but after a bit of practicing, successfully using the sights I made, I figured I'd see if I could get it right the first time today.

    I did good; although, I am a lot slower now. Hopefully speed will come once I get used to using sights.

    In this post I have a video where I display the sight, sight it in, and I try it out.
    It is just a piece of banding material that I cut then bent to fit into the inlet for the regular sights.

    I have gotten more precise with it by taking my time.

    ...and yes, the hat used to be my little secret. ;)

    Thank you for the comments everyone.

    my guess is, force of habit, to make sure he is ''all clear'' on all sides from other shooters and obstructions, such as bystanders. range safety 101

    Clear the area around you for any other bad guys.

    That film clip can't be for real. Hi-Points are inexpensive, and everyone knows that low-priced guns can't be accurate or dependable (sarcasm off).

    Nice shooting!

    Never shot anywhere where it was more than just me n my dad n my uncle. Both clubs I belonged to in my life were usualy desolate. So I'm not used to shootin w a bunch of people. As far as bad guys.... I thing he dropped that cardboard boogeyman pretty darn well;)

    same premise as, a gun is always loaded, a range is always crowded. you should always check. never know when someone you werent aware was there, be it your wife, your son, the little kid up the street may have happened along to see what you were doing....bad things happen only when you dont check.

    I hear ya! Just never thought of doing it after I have shot. Back in the days when my dad and I used the 300yrd range obviously communication w other shooters was key. But I can only remember 2x when we were not alone at the range.

    Yep, it is to remember that there may be more than one threat. So I make sure there are no threats before I holster the weapon.

    It is part of the defensive mindset. I might not ever need it, but I'm ready in case I do.

    Thanks again everyone!

    Nice job!

    Yes... Bad guys travel in packs. After dropping a ne'er-do-well, you'd better look around for his friends who are gonna want to exact some revenge on your @ss. Bring the weapon down to a low-ready position and scan the area. A low-ready position lets you see more of the area around you including what's on the ground. Just because the miscreant went down, doesn't mean he's gonna stay there. Bad guys with fatal wounds have still killed people.
