I guess I have to agree for the most part. Imo, a handgun should be, well, handy
. I detest scopes on handguns unless you're using a scoped set-up for hunting purposes. I also rue the day when optics became legitimate for Bullseye shooting. At the age of 69, I still compete in Bullseye matches with irons-true, though, that I don't win very much anymore
I do see the place for lights on "tactical" self-defense pistols and such and I harbor no animosity for those that might disagree with me. Plenty of room in the ark for all of us.
