Night sights on all of my pistols.

My SIG 220 has the factory night sights. However my Kahr PM40 has the standard dot and post Sig style sights. I might add a night sight to the fron though.
My SIG P229 SAS came with a night sight on the front only.
I also put night sights on my SIG P226R.
Have Night Sights on my Kahr PM9. Stand right out in the complete dark. Pick them up quick.
My G27 has the TRu-Glo TFO's. These are awesome and they were specially put together with yellow on the rear and grean on the front for Gary Brommeland. He is selling them at a great price. I absolutely love them. They not only work great at low light but in reg light they catch all the light and bam you have no sighting issues with these.

Novaks on the BHP. Green front, yellow rear. Awesome sights.
Will do some sort of sight paint on the PPK soon. Original sight paint (and safety dot) fell off after a couple hundred rounds trying to figure out the trigger pull (never have quite mastered it).
I believe the right to bear arms is not only a 2nd Amendment right. I believe it is a basic human right. All people should be able to protect themselves and property.
Absolutely! - Wouldn't be caught dead without 'em..
Then again, May be FOUND dead without 'em
Above all else... Prioritize.
I have them on my primary. The BUG doesn't.
In practice, I find they're more aptly termed 'low light' sights rather than 'night' - they're great in a dimly lit indoor area where I can't otherwise get a sight picture.

I use XS Sights on my Kahr and the factory sights on my S&W Model 60-7. I like the XS and see them faster and get on target quicker. I know my times have dropped alot when I do timed practice stages.
I like NS, but only on the front....

Night Sights are my first and possibly only alteration to a carry gun, besides grips. On my next gun if it's a Sig P229 SAS (DAK trigger) I may put CT's on as well.
Know when I figured out that tritiums are critical? About fifteen years ago I was walking the neighborhood with my wife at about 9pm when a dog comes out of nowhere and goes after my wife. He's snappin' and snarlin' and I draw my 9mm High Power only to realize I couldn't risk the shot because I couldn't see my sights and he was just too close to that which I hold dearest. So I ran up and kicked the crap outta him with my foot! Then his owner ran up apologizing like mad. I had reholstered and I never told him how close he'd come to losing that dog. I started buying night sights the next day. AND I started carrying a SureFire Light, too.
Night Sights are critical. I try and arrange it so that they're already ON any gun I buy.

My Hk 40 came with night sights I like them alot but it took me awhile to get used to them. None of my other guns have them.merlin45kout

i want to get the green/yellow combo for my cz pcr, but haven't found any that'll fit yet. they are gonna make ct grips for it. when they hit the market, i'm getting some.
Mepro Nightsights Are Just Awsome.great In Bright Light Or None At All.couldn't Believe It.wish They Made Archery Sights.
1) Yes. 2) Yes.Just wondering how many of you have night sights on your carry weapon?
Is it worth it?
I've attended a couple training classes and IDPA meets where we did some night shooting. Even while using a flashlight, I found the night sights made it easier for me to pick out my sights and shoot accurately.
