I'm figuring that I'm going to be blind in a few years. With that in mind ... what's the best CC pistol for a blind guy? I'm thinking something like the loaded chamber indicator on the springfield XD pistols would be good. Any compact guns that are ergonomic for the blind?

A very short, sawed off shotgun so you can hit the general area that you heard something.

How exactly do you figure that you'll be blind in a few years? Diabetes? Macular degeneration? Too many dates with Miss Rosy Palm and her five sisters? Sorry, just a joke. [:)]

A very large bowie knife and several fragmentation grenades as backup.

If you cut down on the masturbation your eyesight may gradually improve.

I would recommend any of the fine defensive products of the HK line of firearms. [red]H[/red]elen [red]K[/red]eller, that is.
Link Posted: 5/22/2003 6:52:49 PM EDT
OK, taking this seriously. Any full size or compact snub .38 with a short barrel and a full sized grip (I'd go S&W J or K frame). Its hard to wrestle away from you and you can index it directly against your antagonist and pull the trigger repeatedly without it malfunctioning like an automatic would.

All guns are concealed when you are blind! How about a Minigun? Then you won't be able to hear the bad guys either.

They allow blind people to hunt in Michigan From: http://www.michigan.gov/dnr/0,1607,7-153-10363_10919_11749-31956--,00.html "A legally blind person can use a laser sighting device in taking an animal during the lawful hunting hours for that animal. The person must be assisted by a sighted person who is at least 18 years of age. The sighted person must possess proof of a current or previous hunting license or proof of successful completion of a hunter safety class, and the visually impaired person must possess the appropriate hunting license and proof of impairment in the form of a Secretary of State ID Card."

Piccolo recommends that you get a solid revolver and put a large flat plate on it for your seeing eye cat to sit on. When he goes 'meow' you simply squeeze one off into the BGs X ring. After the first shot, pull out your cell phone and call either the PD, the coroner, or the trash man, depending on your mood at the time. BTW If you really ARE losing your eyesight, I would VERY SERIOUSLY recommend that you DO try at this time to hook up with the people that train guide animals and start working up a relationship with one BEFORE you totally lose your eyesight. As far as handguns go, you're a whole lot better with a well trained canine than fumbling around with a handgun and hurting someone that doesn't deserve it.

going blind might be exaggerated, but i've got the beginnings of a retinal tear in my right eye that the doc is going to attempt to laser back on. and now my left eye is producing the same symptoms that my right eye was producing 6 months ago.

True story. Urban legend has it that they jump with their dogs and when the leash goes slack, they know they're close to the groung. Truth is, they carry a weight on a rope. When the rope goes slack, they assume a plf position.

How about one of those so called "Smart Guns" the DemocRATS want to shove down our throats? I'll bet they can tell a good guy from a bad guy within milliseconds and double-tap 'em center of mass every time!!! [rail]

Hmm... Should be supressed, so you can keep your hearing while you shoot. Cause that'll be all you've got to tell where they are... Maybe a USP tactical... And yes, a very large knife too.

How do blind people know when their asses are clean? I mean how do they know when to stop wiping???

actually you may wanna consider an AOW that I have been eyeing. [url] www.serbu.com/shorty.htm [/url] It is only three shots but it should get the job done.

But won't the mass of hair in your palms prevent you from proper grip of a pistol?
