Evening all!

I'm sitting here with a drink in hand thinking I'm in need of a new pistol for a bedside gun. Right now, I keep a shotgun for those bump in the night moments, but I would like an excuse to purchase another pistol. Here are my criteria:

-Sub $1000
-Rail for adding didicated weapon light
-9mm or 45 auto

Additional features I would find beneficial...
-Night sights
-Threaded barrel for party can
-No manual safety

My thoughts so far are offerings from CZ, or a 1911 of some sort. I have a one glock now and would like branch out towards other offerings. Before anyone throws out carbines and AR's, I'm not opposed to using them for home defense, I'm just looking for a pistol. Any suggestions are welcome!

Well, I can't recommend a 1911 because I don't have any and dont know much about them. but if you have a pull/desire to get one then I'd say lean that direction. If you get a cz you'll be happy with it but that "need" for a 1911 will still be there so unless you want to buy 2 guns go with a 1911 then.
I appreciate the suggestion. The P01 is really a sexy gun.

I would skip the night sights.

Other than finding the pistol on the night stand in the dark...once you turn on a light, be it weapon mounted or hand held, the glow tubes get bleached out and you have regular sights.

Either stick with standard sights, or go with a fiber optic front. Then, when you turn on the wml or hand held, it glows.

That's actually a rather good point.
