Yesterday I took my new S&W 442 for the 2nd time. It shot good. I am getting the hang of sighting it,but still have a hard time with it. I was shooting at 10' and kept it in a 5" circle. I thought that was great. Hurray!!!! When I got home I cleaned it all up and took some rubbing alcohol on the front sight to be painted and let it dry. I took a toothpick like SIXTO said and put florescent green model paint on the top of the front sight that is used for sighting and let it dry. I tried it today dry firing and it id easier to see than the black so next week when I go to the range again I will update about how it worked. Jeff.
