GA Madness 17 DoubleStar PhD Handguns Staff March 6th, 2016 | More From Handguns Staff Share0 Tweet Email Share on Facebook.Share on Twitter.Share on Google+If you’re in the market for a 1911 for defensive uses, the name of DoubleStar’s newest pistol says it all: PhD stands for Personal Home Defense. To that end, one of the unique features on this gun is the XS Express sight setup—a big white outline tritium dot in the front sight teamed with a shallow V-notch in the rear featuring a vertical white line. This “lollipop” sight picture is very quick to acquire and is a great choice for defensive uses. The gun also features a Wilson high-ride beavertail, which permits a high, recoil-controlling grip on the gun.
