    I voted XS Big Dots, why... Because I have TFO's on my G19.

    The TFO's are bright the night sights work well, but the front blade is really long and for me it shortens up the sight radius. On a G27 it is pretty short already.

    Because you have a 23 and a 27 I assume the 23 takes range duty and the 27 is for carry. If you want TFO's put them on the 23 and put the golfball on the 27.

    I voted XS Big Dots because I have the sight on just on gun and I don't have any TFOs to compare to. With that being said I do like the XS Big Dot.

    Big Dot for carry, TFO for competition. Have a buddy whose fiberoptic insert on his front sight came out of his TFOs at a very inopportune moment.

    I voted for the XS big dots. I have a set on my G19. I find them very easy to pick up as the gun comes up. The bullet goes where the dot covers. If you do take that route, make sure you spend some time on the range. The sights take some time to get used to. I only have one carry gun, and any new ones I get will get the same sights. The big dots look big on the gun and in pictures, but are actually the same size as the standard glock sight. Good luck on your search.

    One of my G21's wears big dots.

    Great for rapid acquistion at close-up targets. Not so great for longer precision shots.

    Still light-years better than the FO-tube puking TFO...

    Both my XD's were fitted with TFO's. Couldn't be happier with them, day or night! I did add a drop of clear nail polish to the tubes tho, just to make sure they don't back out.

    For a defensive handgun...hard to beat the XS...JMO
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.
