    My 22/45 Lite is lighter than I prefer. Well, duuuuuhhhh, it's a Lite!

    I know, I know... Why buy a pistol knowing it won't weigh enough? Actually, this is what I planned on.

    I bought it to use with the added mass of a suppressor on the end. I'm waiting patiently for my ATF paperwork to come back with the stamp on it. Tried it already with a buddy's silencer, and I like that weight and balance configuration - a lot.

    Sooo... what do you guys recommend I do to add a little temporary extra weight when I'm not using the silencer? I like some mass (more like my Woodsman) because I shoot tighter groups with a slightly heftier pistol, especially one-handed.

    Maybe zip-tie something in that little hollow spot under the barrel (and cover up that annoying "read the manual" lawyer jive)?

    Anybody here been down this road already?

    Get one of them ankle/wrist weights and strap it on your wrist.
    Good luck and stay safe,
