Im wanting to improve my sight picture on several of my handguns. Cant really afford night sights or hi-viz right now. Has anyone tried this brand of sight paint? Or can you recommend another product to improve sight visability?www.brightsights.com

I've found sight paint to be more of a waste of money than a help. I guess for a plunker in the middle of the day, it's better than nothing.
Rather than spend $$ on advertized 'sight paint', I'd just get a bottle of bright nail polish...it works as well, if not better. OMO

Before I put Truglo TFO sights on one of my guns, I tried that glow in the dark nail polish. Of course, it did next to nothing in low light, but did help me improve my sight picture in daylight. A word of caution though, unless you have steady hands and an artictic eye, you can make quite a mess.

I borrow a bottle from a guy I work with everytime I get a new Glock. I told him the other day that another 2 or 300 pistols I'd replace it. I like the orange paint on the Glock cheapo standard sights better than anything less than fiber optics. I just put some on a LCP (which has minimal sights at best, but it's a belly gun for crissakes). Put me down for liking it fine!

Krylon Fluorescent Paint Pen works pretty well too. I think I picked one up for a few bucks at Wally World a few years back.

I use Brightsights paints, I'm entirely satisfied with the product.
I repainted the white dot sights on my LW Commander over 2 years ago, orange front, green rear, and the colors are still bright.

When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
And the women come out to cut up what remains,
Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
And go to your God like a soldier.

Walmart sells an Acrylic paint pen in flourescent colors like orange and green and it works very well to highlight a front sight.
All paints on sights work better if you put a white base coat on first.
