    Some of my guns have night sights, it came with it when I bought them. I don't particularly care for them, they are only good for the first shot. Have you ever fired your gun in complete darkness (or somewhat complete darkness), the flash is blinding and your focus is primarily on the BG/target. I would spend my money on other things...
    Practice point shooting, when SHTF, you will most likely not have enough time to aim, hold your breath, pull trigger.

    Just my 2 cents

    Athos ,crossed my mind on your original post to ask, "What sort of shirt (i.e., color & weight) were you wearing when they made you?"

    FWIIW, I checked mine one night after reading your post by laying my lightest weight cover shirt over them and killing the light. No glow showed through. But then I live in a fairly temperate area.

    I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.

    I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.

    I use the brightest Night Sights you can buy, TFO's and there is no light visible through clothing. I also agree with Thumper, that the off setting colors make sight pick up very quick and accurate, especially for my 40+ year old eyes!!
