Okay I recently purchased the M&P Bodyguard for my BUG. The sights on it, as you would expect, are not the best. In the future I plan on throwing on some night sights but I don't have the money for it right now. I was wondering what the best way to put some white dots on the sights is. Anyone have suggestions?

White out? Or finger nail polish.
Gun control isn't about guns...it's about control. It also makes criminals out of otherwise law abiding citzens.
I don't paint circles, I paint the hole sight. I use appliance white touch up. This makes a good base. Nail polish over that will seal and be tough as nails. If I want white sights I seal it with glo in the dark clear nail polish. The white base makes the colored polish brighter if you like colors.
There are multiple "glow on" style products out there. Search around a little.

I've used Glow-on as sight paint - it's not tritium, but does help old eyes. I used it on a revolver, just painted the whole visible surface of the blade. It held up pretty well. I've also used florescent enamel on them too. A couple of coats, and a clear coat of lacquer or good clear nail polish. Stands up better than you might think to holster wear and general handling.
I painted the whole front blade with white nail polish, and then sealed it with clear nail polish. Not a bit of wear after a lot of carry. Even if it did wear, the polish is dirt cheap.

You're talking about the revolver? If so... Just put some white nail polish on the front sight. The Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear in a color called White On works excellent for touching up gun sights. It's a super bright white and really hardens nicely. I've redone all my front sights with that stuff and dulled up the rear sights with some flat white enamel paint mixed with a drop or two of grey.
Pocket pistols are for point shooting. .. no sights required.
Things gun forums have taught me:
-Some people shoot guns others "run" them.
-I don't dislike Glocks but often dislike Glock owners.
-Open carry is to a handgun as bluetooth is to a cell phone!
-Simple math can deliver posts per day... some gun forum members need to get out more!!!
For cheap, I'd go with nail polish from Wally World. Brightest orange on the front sight, to make it stand out. Repaint when it comes off.

Paint the entire front sight with a base of white nail polish, then cover with bright orange nail polish. My Lcp is much easier to shoot since I did this.

I use bright yellow nail polish on a lot of my guns. Nail polish is nice, it last a very long time and if I want it off use nail polish removed and a q-tip. I found bright yellow picks up my eye best. I give it two to three coats and it work well. I would do only the front sight on the bodyguard. I don't understand why S&W didn't put white dot sights on this gun. I like the new bodyguard but the trigger is way too heavy, then putting a safety on a gun with a nine pound trigger doesn't make sense to me and the sights should be while dot or night sights. Other than that I like the gun and thinking of buying one myself.
