    I absolutely prefer night sights on my EDC. The value of your weapon goes down at night (in the dark) without them. I shoot during the day just as well with them as without them, but it doesn't work the other way around. I have SIGLITE nightsights on my P220

    Yes anything that improves your ability to quickly aquire your sights is a plus

    Night sights are definitely worth the money. Most shooting situations are not going to happen in brightly lighted areas, under ideal conditions. Any thing that helps you acquire your sights/target quicker the better.

    Have Tritium night sights on my .45. They glow all night on the night stand and work well on the range.

    Yes I wish I had night sights on my guns. I have them on one(HK P7) but my not my usual carry gun. Hopefully soon.

    I voted no, but will get night sights as soon as I'm able to afford in this recession we got going on now.

    Not sure why, but it's never been something I put much thought into.

    I voted no. If any of my guns had come with night sights I guess I'd probably like it, but not worth it to me to spend the extra money on them. It would probably make it easier to find my gun at night, with those nice bright sights shining at me, though.

    My flashlight works fine for identifying the target and with the flashlight shining on them I can see my front sight fine.

    Yes, I would rather have them and not need them, then need them and not be able to pick up my front sight.

    All my two EDC's have night sights, in fact, all my .45's and 9mm's have night sights.

    I have Crimson Trace grips on my Kimber. I will be retro fitting it and my G26 with NS as soon as the cash is available.

    My EDC has them and as soon as I get my LCP back from Robar, I will probably use nitesiters dots on it too.
    God bless our troops!
