So, this might sound a bit snarky, but 30 feet is only ten yards. While lots of defensive shooting research suggests that most defensive shooting occurs between 5 - 7 yards, I always want my pistols...

Bought a PO 45 from Merle Edington many (MANY) moons ago, that had grip inserts from GunCraft. They make the grip feel just awesome. I think GunCraft went the way of the Dodo some years back.
