The stock sights are horrific. The easiest way to improve it is to add a Crimson Trace LG-431.

I have a Ruger LCP, a firearm that sacrafices certain things to aid in concealability. One of the things that were left behind to aid in quick pocket draws were the sights.
Do you fine folks have any tricks to improve the sights on an LCP without making them snaggy? I was thinking of painting the front sight white, but what should I use for paint?

I don't see a need for sights at all with a pistol like this made for short range shooting- the distance between the sights is so short! It's really better for point shooting, just practice shooting using natural pointing without even getting it up to the eyes. Or get the laser. We have a Seecamp .32 which is even smaller and has no sights at all, they just aren't worth much.

I bought some and have been satisfied, i painted the sights on my SA heritage rough rider and it helped...
You may not like guns. You may choose not to own one. That is your right.
You might not believe in God. That is your choice.

I would have used the word horrific, but I was trying to be polite...lol
$200 bucks is a bit steep for a laser for that gun, but I like the sight paint kit. Even if I dont usee the sights in the customary manner, it is nice to get a quick fix on the front sight.
The gunshop that sold it to me said it was a point and shoot, and not to even worry about the sights.

I would practice point shooting. In the event you have to use it, you really won't have time to line up sights anyways.
If they're close enough to warrant you using the LCP, chances are you can't miss.
For longer distances, the laser will be more accurate than the LCP's sights for most people.
Sights? We don't need no stinking sights on a little belly gun.
You think the sights are bad on the LCP, take a look at this little shooter of mine - no sights at all.
I don't miss within 10 feet.
With a 45 caliber ball, a huge booming blast, a cloud of smoke and fire like a flame thrower, I'll be OK - Bad Guy will be gone and his pants will be soiled.

I thought you were introducing Supermans step-brother there for a minute.
Daub the front sight with white acrylic fingernail polish...works like a charm.
I added the Crimson Trace grips not only to help with sighting, but I think it gives the tiny firearm a bit more "intimidation factor" to the potential BG.
Step into the world of 'point shooting' http://www.threatfocused.com/forums/index.php , and you won't need those sights...

Elephants are big! Sorry, I though we were pointing out the obvious.
Put a laser on it, it is hard to beat an illuminated front sight with a sight radius that ends on the target.
To me it isn't a gun that would see much range work, it would only be used in high stress situations and as much as I train to look at the front sight, I expect that I would index off the back of the gun at the speed and distance it is likely to see.
Set the laser so that you can see the dot at 7 yds looking through the sights and use it as a front sight.
My on my Kimber when I am using the iron sights I can't see the laser, but for the LCP I would use it different.
