    This may sound unconventional or even bizarre on a defensive carry forum but I'm not much concerned about low light conditions and colored sighs are annoying for range or field use. I'm not even color-blind, Zamboni but that's a logical assumption. I come from a background of competitive shooting where precision is called far and where a dark and sharp front sight picture is most appropriate.

    This won't work for everybody, may not be current thinking on the subject, and may not even be the most prudent way to outfit a dedicated concealed carry handgun but there it is. Some experimental shooting in low-light or no light conditions at night, in the yard of our old lake cabin, satisfied me that solid hits may be reasonably be expected on a full-sized silhouette target to 7 yards or so.

    I prefer white for the front sight but I have green Hy-Viz sights on a PT1911 that work well.

    Agree that there is something to point shooting. I have really improved my pistol shooting ability after a few thousand rounds. Looking to make some small improvements like with the sight paint. Want to make sure my skills are honed as much as they can be before I spend the money on a better trigger and better sights. That whole training > gear concept.
