How does this work in the daytime?
I'm picking up a new pistol next week with black irons on it. I'm not so much concerned about shooting at night as I am getting a nice three dot setup on it that shows up in the daytime. I was already thinking of replacing the sights.
What exactly is this, paint on, stick on? Do you have instructions or a youtube vid?
While white paint is reflective, Glow-On emits light in daylight because is constantly charged.
In the night hours it can be used like night sights.
The product looks deceptively liquid, but, after it dries,(a few hours) and cures (about 3-4 days) it becomes surprisingly solid, like synthetic concrete, if you ever used it.
So notice this product is volumetric, not flat like other products.
And, it's made here in the USA, YESSSS!

One could paint the whole iron sights like on this example:
This is how you do it:
First paint the whole area of the rear sight.
Wait for about 30 minutes, it should be dry to the touch.
Grab an Xacto utility knife and slightly press i against the rear sights surface, just like on the photo.
By "carving" the excess on both sides and bottom, you have created a straight angles and a more fancy look.
If it gets overworked, just wipe the sights clean with a moist paper towel and start again.
The Paint is quite fragile for now, let it dry and cure for a couple of days.
it will continue to dry and harden as the days go by.
I see to get a dot you pretty much need to be replacing a dot, or already have the round depression in the sight.
If you are using the paint and trim method above, how well does it hold up to normal wear and tear? Clothing rubbing against it, wiping down the gun with oil and solvents?
How does the paint "charge" if the pistol or revolver is holstered and concealed all day long?

The complete glow decay happens after almost 1200 minutes.....
A number completely useless , just like your cars gas/mileage ratio cannot tell you at which precise moment you will run out of gas.
Add to that, the illumination intensity of some places will make the glow undetectable, while some indoor places like garages and barns will reveal the bright glow.
That's the reason we call them transition sights,
The rate at which the glow decays and the precise moment in which you are going to pull your firearm and shoot, are two things almost impossible to reconcile.
Unless, You have the control and flash your sights, just like you would at your home, suspecting an intrusion.
Self defense situations outside your home are as unpredictable as the path of a tornado.
Mind you I've live in Oklahoma most of my life.

Support is important for precision.
I it starts to look overworked, just wipe it off with a moist paper towel and start again.
That's the advantage of water based products
