There a variety of Dawson sights out there. Go to [link=(http://Dawsonprecision.com)]DawsonPrecision[/link].com to see what they have. You should be able to find what you're looking for.

If he's sticking with a true pocket gun, I think the Shield will exceed that size limit.
Although as an IWB gun, the Shield is tough to beat.

[quote]You say that like its a negative
It's considerably heavier than the Kahr. If it's going to be carried in a pocket, it's definitely a negative for me.

[quote]The .38 has less kick than the .45. But the .45 is heavier, has a standard length barrel ( for a 1911) which offsets the recoil IMO. The .38 has a short barrel, light frame, and smaller grips. More obnoxious to shoot IMO. [/quote]
Agreed. And people think of 45 as some hand cannon since th...
