    By far, my favorite front sight is Ted Yost's gold-inlaid post. The serrated gold picks up light like crazy. The original black on either side gives great contrast on a light colored target.

    For an all-purpose gun , I like 3 dot Night Sights.

    For a small carry gun - anything that has a highly visible front will do.

    Thus far I like the Heinie Straight Eight sights with the XS Big Dot Night Sights as a close second.

    Carry gun: I seem to like the 3-dot night sights but don't have them yet.

    Target rig: big ol' iron target sights. Grew up with em, learned to shoot silhouette with em...

    Rifle: Scope :) or good iron sights.

    Shotgun: Ghost ring, please

    Good poll.

    Peace,
    Pete Zaria.

    Ditto. Other than that---a good, large objective red dot sight.

    Not trying to hijack a thread. But I have a question, If you have standard 3 dot sight. Can you enhance them? Paint? something else?

    Argus,

    You can use testors model enamel if you wish to change the colors. A round toothpick works good for application of the paint on the dot.

    Sights? Who needs em.

    I prefer the standard three dot mepro's, but can see the value in big dots and some other systems out there.

    Tritium XS Big Dots. They're great fast acquisition sights for the vision impaired.
