Plus, $4 for the paint is a LOT cheaper. But each needs to set up however they like.
    I both put on a Trijicon front sight AND painted dayglow orange around it. I find that the Trijicon takes over when the light is too dim to see the orange, so I get a complete continuum of light levels in which I can see the front sight.
    In the heat of the moment, what matters is what your body knows -- not what your mind knows.

    I put this set-up on my G-30 and like it a lot. In the daylight, the three sights work as normal. In low light, the back sights are a bit dimmer than the front sight which draws my eye to the front sight while still giving enough light to use the sights.

    I use this solution as well - night sights and DG Orange around the tritium on the front sight. Works well for me.

    OP - I have a weapon that came with Heinie Straight 8 sights, basically the same sighting configuration you are discussing - stacked dots. I did not like it and changed the sights to night sights with 3 dots so that it matched all my other sighting systems. I have a variety of weapons, but try to keep them as similar in operation as possible so I don't have to remember which I am using. This means I sweep the safety off my Glocks so I don't forget to do so on my 1911s and other weapons that have a safety. Additionally, all my guns with safeties have the same safety motion as a 1911. If a weapon has an external safety and it operates differently than my 1911, I don't purchase it.
