The green paint lasts for about 8-10 hrs......you can usually find it on E Bay....in the gun accys sections

Street cops have been using it for decades.
Also, I find that with the amount of useful side spill on my Surefires, the Harris style techniques illuminate the sights well enough.

It's certainly not the technique I prefer, but for a gun that has no night sights it's definitely a viable technique. It certainly is less stable than any technique that involves having the light parallel to the gun in some way. Depending on the light you're using, this may not illuminate the sights sufficiently -- especially if the gun with which you find yourself has less than ideal sights in the first place.

OMG...... ya just cant resist can you? Whats the deal?
P.S. If you respond, please don't post a huge pic of yourself demonstrating this.
Now Im going to have nightmares tonight.
I have been using white-out on the front post. Its just that white-out doesn't show in low light w/h my 1911.
I never tried using a real Harris technique since I got my surefire. My range will let me get away with a lot, but shooting at night is crossing the line. Ill try it with dry fire in my apt. I bet it will work real well w/h my .38, duno bout the 1911? Ill give it a try after my GF goes to bed. She is new to guns.

Phil posted the picture for the benefit of say, myself, who is reading this thread as an interested third party. I found it useful.

Phil shared a small piece of knowledge with us. That is useful.
You have made snide juvenile comments. That is not useful.

Man, this thread went downhill in a hurry. Gregarat, it's OK to have a different opinion from others, but to belittle someone just for the hell of it is out of line.
Mom always taught me that if you can't say something good, STHU. This thread has some good info and Phil has put a good deal of that out there. Deal with it if you don't agree.
Mods, if this is inappropriate, delete my post.
