The "Mahan Sight" is made by conservativetroll here on the HPT. Drop him a note here, or contact him through his website at
http://mahansights.com/

AND, enjoy! David's HP sight is a definite upgrade to (as we know) an already pretty nice pistol!

Well they said it couldn't be done, actually I said it wouldn't/couldn't be done!!! But i was wrong, really really reeeeeeeeeeeally wrong!! I said my JHP would NEVER BE PACKED, TOO TOO BIG AND TOO UGLY!! That part i was right about, but NOT the packin part!!

Before going much further, not only do i walk to work but i walk in the evening along a canal!! If you want to do something outside in the summer in Arizona you do it in the evening!! MY PHILOSOPHY IS THIS, I'D MUCH MUCH PREFER TO NEVER CHAMBER A SINGLE ROUND. AND IF I CAN SCARE THE CRAP OUT OF SOME GUY WITH MISCHIEF ON HIS MIND, SO THAT HE FILLS HIS PANTS AND RUNS OFF THAT IS WHAT I'M GOING TO DO!! SO I HANG ALL THIS STUFF ON MY WEAPON FOR MULTIPLE REASONS!! I can see, he cannot (the light above the barrel is a strobe as well) Hopefully when he sees that green dot on his chest, he will get the picture!!!!

I walk to work and now that it is getting pretty dark that time of the morning and because of where my path takes me AND BECAUSE I'VE HAD A GUY ALMOST HIT ME, I wear flashing LED'S (he felt he needed to spin around in the middle of this little intersection, drive up on the curb ans start jawing @ me) :sick: I changed my route so didn't have to deal with that hopefully!! But I decided it was time to do something so here we go:!!!!!
:worthless:
Here i am just coming back from the store, (evening ingredient run for my wife who is a phenomenal cook) except for my flip flops :good one:
Image
here's what's underneath
Image
What i've actually done is create a single point sling!! I found some embossed hose clamps that are the 9mm or close to what i would term 3/8 actually very close too .35
These are "embossed" and as you can see they are "raised" or technically embossed!! you can really crank down on these puppies!! I positioned it so that my thumb fits through the key rings (which doubled up for purposes of redundancy and reliability)
Image
I connect or disconnect as easily needed like this
Image

The whole thing looks like this
Image

Now there is one last aspect of this that i I REEEEEEEEEALLY REALLY REALLY LIKE The belt does essentially what a stock does!! I am pushing against it in this picture! i must admit i was supremely annoyed when one of the guys mentioned that It becomes an SBR (short barrelled rife if you put a stock on it ) and that is $200.00 bucks. That is the feds messing in my day to day life and that is NONE OF THEIR BUSINESS!! So i turned the concept around and instead of tucking a stock into my shoulder i push against the belt as it wraps around my back. It becomes extremely stable and as soon as i get my sight doctored up (you can see i hold really close though that is adjustable by the length of the belt you keep) I will endeavor to shoot some really nice groups so you can see what this accomplishes!! IT APPEARS TO ME THAT IF I LOCATED THE PIVOT POINT PROPERLY, THE PUSHING MOMENT WILL TEND TO ROTATE THE BARREL BACK INTO ALIGNMENT WITH THE TARGET I'M SEEKING

That is pretty slick Troll!

From looking at the ring placement I question whether I'm holding my pistols correctly. I have the web on my hand in that area not my thumb. My thumb knuckle is flush forward of the left side of the rear flat of the slide. So basically if you laid a finger across the hammer area of the rear of the slide it would lie on the rear side of the thumb knuckle on my right hand. And even then my trigger finger is too long. :shock:

You could play like you were a part of the 'Men in Black' organization. Dark suit, dark sunglasses and that gizmo thingy. Come up with a word for some outlandish alien that the gun zaps. They wouldn't even have to know the gun was real. :whistle:

That is an excellent idea, and you are right about how it serves the same function a stock would but in a different manner. By pushing against the sling, you're giving yourself a solid foundation, like pulling a rifle stock into your shoulder, resulting in a steadier aim. That is one of the first things I learned (and consequently one of the first things I teach) about control is to push with the strong hand and pull with the weak hand. Tightens groups up a ton. :thumb:

You guys crack me up!!!! Thanks for the input!! I really like the thing!! It hangs comfortably and is very accessible!!! (If any one wants to try it I have a few of the hose clamps!! The belt was $12 @ Wal Mart!! Like i said you can really crank down on those things!!! I've checked numerous times and have yet to find it the slightest bit loose!!! I practice slapping the switches on the laser and light!!!

The thing i want to refine is the clamp screw!! I may simply set it in place and polish the edges to the point that it can't be tightened any more. Will let you all know!!! I really want to work on the sight, to shrink the aperture!!! Holding that close really changes things!!!!

Or just get rid of the aperture altogether and just use the front sight.
