    For combat sights it is hard to beat the BIG dot.
    As Benjamin Franklin left the hall in Philadelphia, he was asked, “What kind of government have you given us, Dr. Franklin?” He replied: “A republic, if you can keep it.”

    I like the big dot. I have one on my Shield and one on my 640.

    If you are used to being conscious of your "group" size you will need to expect them to open up(with the large dots) a bit at longer ranges but at close quarters they are very good.

    Big Dots on my trio of Glock .45's! Great combat sights but not for punching tight groups at longer ranges.

    My LCR has the standard dot XS sight - I would prefer the Big Dot.

    The guy that milled my 1911 slide for XS sights had guns with both Big and Standard dots.

    At range, I would lose sight of the target with the Big Dot so i chose the Standard.

    If, when, I need the Big dot, I'll just pick up one and tap it in the dovetail.

    Installed the Big Dot 24/7 on my Glock 26 several months ago. My old eyes thanked me. But they lend themselves more to SD than target shooting.

    I put a Big Dot on my SP101 snubby and the Colt 1911; they're great for EDC quick target acquisition up to ~ 21 ft.
    Don't do much long-range handgun shooting.

    For quick sight acqusition and shots out to 7 yards (21 feet) the XS big dots are my pick.
    No internal lock or magazine disconnect on my pistols!
