I snagged 2 coupons for products I've posted about recently that I will take advantage of. DeSantis and XS Precision Sights.
The DeSantis holster is the first of probably many pocket holsters I'll try out. I have an Uncle Mike's now, and it is fine but getting worn. There are other brands out there, and I will probably try a few more. But now I have a coupon!
Commenters are a bit down on the XS Sights, but not enough to sway me away from trying them out. There are 2 sizes of front post, large and small, and I need something for my J frame to make it stand out more. Nail polish isn't gonna cut it. I'll probably get the small for that. And it's just the front sight, anyway.
Front and rear will go on the Commander 1911. I'll stick with 3 dot for more precision on my Gov't size, in case I ever improve my marksmanship or want to compete. The Commander's biggest purpose to is to eventually be my CCW carry gun. If a 'target' is far enough away to require a fine notch and sight picture, then I should be evading. 50 yard shots, by most lights, in IDPA might not do as well with XS sights, but I will see anyway, won't I? Currently the Commander has no tritium, so there is that. And I have a coupon!
Plus i got those VZ grips for my J Frame. I went for basic black, while JayG got similar grips but greay and black for the SFH. They were there, at the show, and available. So I snagged some.
[Update: Are these grips beefier than the factory grips? No. But my factory grips were full size rubber Hogue grips. I swapped them out for the much smaller Eagle grips (no pinky spot on those, or the VZ.) The Eagles are good, but you know how some folks are never satisfied. I have no idea how wooden S&W grips feel, girthwise]
