    I have a friend that would take an empty case and tell her he was going to the range...except he bought another gun and it came home in the now full case.

    Into the safe for a while and when he got it back out he would answer her question with "what, that old thing? I've had it forever."

    The moral is: they got a divorce after 46 years. I can't fathom how he lasted that long.

    I just wanted to add this. Jimsig is the man and my hero!!

    I admire your attitude on how to treat your relationship with your wife.
    Just because something is legal to do doesn't mean it is the smart thing to do.

    One idea you might want to consider is just buying an optic-ready slide for the gun you have, assuming you like the gun, and the slide is available.
    That way you are not buying a new gun, and you can simply swap the slide to go from iron sights to optic and back. Screwing on and off the optic is more pain if you want to be able to go back and forth.

    Thank you j-squared... I agree it is a pain and has been... I like the current gun (for self-defense), and I discovered later that RDS is better for me than iron sights, so I tried MANY. I added an adapter (outerimpact) to enable the RDS to be put. The RDS always loses the zero on this gun. The other one I have came with the RDS and it just worked great for thousands of shots... I investigated the possibility of milling my slide (e.g. with jagerwerks) but a lead time of 8 weeks was discouraging for me.

    Another aspect was the cost; my gun ~$500 (new) + RDS ~$250 + Slide milling ~$150 (or new slide ~$250) didn't make any sense to me, especially that the one that I like with RDS and more capacity retail ~$900 but I was able to order it for ~750 with $50 factory rebate!!

    Thats why I want to sell mine...
