    XS ... hands down!!!
    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.

    I liked the Heinie Straight-8 set-up I had on a couple of my duty Glocks, when I still used tupperware pistols.

    Presently, I use P229s with factory tritium up front, and the factory "contrast" rear sight without tritium. The pictures of Heinies mounted on SIGs that I have seen make them seem a bit different than what I had on my Glocks, so I am not sure I would like them. My 1st-Generation SAS P229s came with tritium only in the front sight, and I liked that set-up enough to remove the 2-tritium-dot factory rear from my P229, and replace it with a non-tritium "contrast" factory rear sight.

    I have nothing against the Novak, and have considered trying a Novak half-ghost style with tritium at the bottom, or perhaps without. I have not yet had a chance to see/handle a pistol with this set-up, however, and I know I do like the SIG "contrast" rear, which IMHO is one of the best rear sights I have ever seen on any pistol.

    I like my Big Dots. Easy to see and fast on target.
