    Question Gun Sights Hard to See

    I have a new Para PDA .45 and it has night sights which work great in the dark but on the dimly lighted range they are a bit hard to see.

    I was thinking about putting a drop of white paint or something on top of the front sight just for something to focus on. Any suggestions.
    Ahhh, what an awful dream. Ones and zeros everywhere... and I thought I saw a two.

    I have two guns with night sights and they are the same way. I go to an outdoor range with an overhead, and the sights don't glow in that venue, even though they are bright in the darkness.

    You can't paint the front sight because then you would obscure the night capability.

    That does look like a good option. I'd paint mine yellow or white instead of red though.

    Don't paint over the night sights......I doubt that anything will be easy to see in the direct sun.
    I sure would, however, want the night sights for moving around the home in dim/no light situations.

    For SD situations you probably won't be using any sights anyway.

    Thanks, Eagle. That is what I want to try also. I have been painting mine, but there is not much area around the insert hole. This looks much better.

    Regards,
    Jerry
