To lazy? Hmmm dont quite understand this. I shoot several days a week. Learning a new sight, no problem.

Am I willing to the work? Hmmm...I guess. I aint bashing XS sights. I like the sight picture so I thought I would try them. I dont really care for 3 dot sights and the stock Glock sights are fair. So I turned to the fine folks on DC forum for some advise. Ive got some XS on the way, so I hope Im "up to it."

Don't know how well you can see it from this photo but Big Dot front sights on a revolver like my SP-101 with a pinned front sight are a great addition.

I prefer the standard dot, I find the big dot is minute of milk jug for me even at 7 yards.

Yup. I put a big dot on my 640 last week and took it to the range. It was grouping in the 1.25" range at 7 yards rapid fire. Clearly not Camp Perry accuracy, but I sure as heck would hate to be on the other end of this thing with that accuracy. Having the contrast on the sight, instead of just the black blade sight, took 0.25" off my groups all by itself. I assume that in low light, the benefit will be even greater in both accuracy and time to acquire the sight.

Good grief, SamRudolph, you sound like a grumpy old deer hunter.
