    I do not have these,I almost bought them but after much thought went with Truglo TFO's, My opinon from what I researched is that they would make great self defense sights,but once your out of the box and star to have some distance between you and your target there are other sights that are far better. there more for very close in work not so much an all around sight.just my opinon.

    A friend has them on his XD9 service. They're what I would buy for night sights. The sights are very easy to acquire, and they can be surprisingly accurate at distance. (Then again, we're talking defensive accurate, not benchmark accurate)

    Love them, especially for my old eyes.

    I have them on my shotguns and 2 of my carry guns.

    Do a search, these have been talked about quite a bit...

    That said, they're what I use and I've been happy with them.

    I use the standard dot and like them a lot. Great night sights. The big dot is a bit...big, oddly enough.

    They are not target sights but they are quick and simple. Just dot the i and cover your intended POI with the dot.

    I have a set on my 1911 commander. They took some getting use to. I am not very accurate with them past 20 yards. Does not mean others are not. That being said, I use them for my CCW.

    I love them and would buy them all over again. Im considering a set on my Kahr PM9.

    *EDIT* Btw, I have the 24/7 Big dot Set. No issues with holster clearance!

    Like 'em???

    More like love 'em!

    Once you get used to them, they are IMO, the BEST defensive carry gun sights in the world, hands down.

    XS Big Dots on my G26...Best thing I've done! Love em!
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    Glad to hear, I just bought them. Thanks for all the advice, it's a great thing to learn from others mistakes and experiences. Saves a lot of heartburn.

    Got'em on my M&P9 and I really like them. Used them. Excellent sight for defensive shooting.

    very good gunfighting sights but I still use my notch and post sights. I just train a lot.
    You do not think the 9mm is effective? Then let me shoot at you.

    I know that this may or may not belong on another thread but here it goes.

    Somewhere in my past I recall a firearms instructor giving me this acronym for proper firearms fire. Here goes:

    -Breathe
    -Relax
    -Aim
    -Squeeze
    -Surprise

    Breathe- Take a few breaths and hold the 3rd breath
    Relax- As you are about to squeeze the trigger
    Aim- Get proper site alignment
    Squeeze- Squeeze the trigger with the last section of your finger
    Surprise- The moment the weapon fires it should surprise you.

    Any thoughts on this approach to proper firearms firing procedure.
