    Tru-Glo TFO's. The best of both worlds. Fast to pick-up during the day, plus a great night-sight. They stand behind their product also.

    Adios,

    IMHO...you cant go worng with the standards, Trijicon and meprolight. I suggest two colors though. Like red rears with a green front. Very effective at picking up the front sight.

    XS Big-Dots. Plenty accurate and faster than notch-and-post sights.

    I have all of the above on different Glocks. For close up quick hits, the BIG Dots are outstanding. For both Day and Night use, I love the TFO's - the only iossue I have had is the fiber optic insert has come loose on a set - the replaced them within a week and no hassel. Reg night sights a good for dark spots - like beds rooms etc but are just like normal sights during the day. My older eyes appreciate the TFO's glow in the dark at night and very bright during the day. The BIG DOT is awesome out to 15 yds - just takes a liitle practice to get used to.

    I concur. The XS big dots are very nice also.

    I'll second that opinion, it's TruGlo TFOs on my Glock 26.

    While I do not have a Glock, I will recommend AmeriGlo's in the "Operator" flavor, **seen here** The Operators, which are offered in both regular and Pro Series configurations, have a larger, white outlined tritium front sight and smaller tritium rear sights that are not outline. This, at least for me, creates both excellent day and night sight alignment and draws your focus to the front sight.

    I have AmeriGlo Operators on my M&P and they have quickly become my favorite!

    Edited to mention: Others have mentioned about getting sights with different color between front and rear to better distinguish the front sight at night. The AmeriGlo Operators create the same effect with the larger front tritium vial over the smaller rear vials.

    I'll swim against the current:
    Crimson Trace laser grips.
    I've become a member of the "Bifocal Generation" (not my choice, I assure you!) and to see the sights clearly I have to crank my head back and look through the bottom of the bifocals.
    The laser helps me out quite a bit.
    This is a supplement -- not a replacement -- for the stock sights. With a flashlight for certain target identification, I find it works well for me.

    You may want to consider tritium sights as well as the LaserGrips. Your laser may fail when needed, but tritium sights will continue to function.

    Any tritium lamp up front, provided it's well made. There are scads.

    No glowie dots in the back for me, thanks.
