    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.

    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 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.

    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.

    Just wondering how many of you have night sights on your carry weapon?
    Is it worth it?
    1) Yes. 2) Yes.

    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.
