    I wonder how may people with lasers on their guns realize the BG can see the beam emanating from their gun and then know exactly where to shoot back?
    I wonder how many people rely too much on the laser? I started to get one for my wife. Then decided to just train her to shoot a stinking gun instead of point a laser. The nite sites are giving me something to think about. Never thought about it that way.

    Unrelated, but just got through talking to my wife about it. Flashlights on guns. Anyone ever think about the fact that if they are clearing the house they are pointing the gun where they shine the light? Think I'll keep the flashlight off the gun.

    I love the fact that you can carry on GA flights.

    A few years back I was doing a preflight/walk-around inspection of a C-172 . . . and was visually checking the fuel level on top of the left wing. To get the right angle so you can see into the tank opening, you have to lean over quite a bit.

    I hear my instructor give a "AHEM" behind me, and as I glance over he points to my hip and says "you are peeking." Nothing more was said.

    I love being a Texan.

    When I put my gun on tonight to go to the store, I noticed my sights glowing....but never thought that they might show through a shirt!

    Thanks for the tip!

    As a cargo pilot - that flies in and out of the GA side of things this almost works for me! Since occasionally I carry radioactive cargo! (used in medical applications)... Makes me wonder what that might do for my offspring someday though!

    I guess if I trust you enough to work on my airplane, I'll trust you to carry a gun.

    I was casually thinking about adding night sights to my carry gun but I believe, after reading this thread, I'll pass on the whole Idea. I go to many gun unfriendly places and don't want to be outed by my gun.

    Dang...the more I learn, the more I know I dont know...thanks for that lesson.

    As to the question regarding using a light on your, or with your weapon, the idea is not to walk around with the light on. The idea is to flash and move, flash and move. You are looking for a quick view of the situation, and moving quickly so as not to make a good target for the BG. The light can be turned on and off quickly, the sights are always on.

    Guess I should re-think my Luminox too?

    Hmm, this is something I've never really considered. Guess I need to do a little more debating on the benefits and drawbacks of night sights.

    For those of you that are against Night Sights, Lasers and general overall improvement of the tools in the Tool Box to put bullets on target, don't use them.

    Some of us have seen how these tools can help us, in certain situations and will not turn back the clock. I was dragged, "kicking and screaming" to having Night Sights on my gun. Now I have those, and a laser too. If you've never done a night shoot I don't think you have much room to talk. If you have, and still hold that opinion, then we will just have to agree to disagree, even if you are wrong.

    As to the Night Sights glowing through a cover shirt, yup, it happens. If somebody ask I tell them the radioactive cancer treatment I'm receieving must be leaking. That usually send them scampering away.

    As I have stated before, I have no experience with the use of night sights. My only thought, or actually worry, about them is what a BG may see in a darkened room.

    If anyone would like to perform the following experiment, please feel free to do it:

    In a dark room (bathroom with lights out) bring your pistol (unloaded of course) up to a shooting position, aimed at your image in a mirror.

    What would a BG see, if anything, reflected off of your eyes or eyeglasses ??????

    Just a question, not a condemnation of night sights in any way...

    Great interactions all around it sounds like! Sounds like those pilots had a good eye on you to catch those night sights most people would think it's a cell phone or something else.
