    Look. I know this is a difficult concept, but the sights are not the limitation you believe they are.

    Are they a sight oriented for low light, close in defensive shooting? Yes.
    Are they limited to that? No.
    Can you make them work for long distance shots with proper trigger control and practice? Yes.

    Are you willing to do the work?

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

    I believe XS sights are a limitation? Hmmm...wouldnt know Ive never laid eyes on them before, much less shot them.

    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."

    Cool

    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.
    Hakkaa päälle!

    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.

    I have night sights on 3 of my carry guns (the 642 being the lone exception). I have nothing bad to say about the big dot. If you take the time to learn how it aims, you can hit what you are aiming at pretty well.

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