I am super impressed so far with this product and not so sure that I need to go with the tritium sights after all. I used the LED flashlight built into my iphone to charge them for a few seconds before bed, and I kid you not... they glowed all night. There was decay over time but even after seven hours, I was amazed how bright they were and how I could still get a useable sight picture out of them. It was easy to install, and the smallest bottle took care of three of our guns. I would advise getting the bigger bottle for a few bucks more as I came close to running out after I goofed and had to start over a couple of times. There are some people who seem to look down on this option over Tritium but anything that gives you a tactical advantage is worth having.
"...anything that gives you a tactical advantage is worth having." Sir, I very much like your words, thanks for the trust.
Here some combinations:

It was performed with an unloaded weapon.
In a real life scenario , if you suspect an intruder, call 911 first.
Have a plan, set a fall back place, make sure your family if possible converge at that place if you have to perform a security check with a loaded firearm.
I use it on several firearms, it works amazingly well.
Have a plan!
How does the paint look in normal daylight? Pics? I ask because I had some trijicons that glowed well at night, but were so faint during the day it was bothersome and made me wish I had left the stock Glock sights.
Got an MSDS?

While aiming a firearm equipped with phosphorescent sights in a dark environment, don't look directly thru the sights.
Look over it or to the side slightly.
You'll be able to align a shot better.
Reason: The center of vision is mainly used to see in daylight and in the dark you'll see a dark spot in front of you.
Try it: On a starry night look directly at any star, it briefly disappears for a fraction of a second the most you concentrate your vision.
Now look at it indirectly, slightly to the side... Now it appears very bright.
"Liberal arguments against guns tend to presume the worst: that a yearning for gun ownership must in some way be rooted in the desire to hurt. But gun culture at its best is rooted in a desire to protect, and especially to protect the people we love"
