How to see in the dark.
In complete darkness the center of vision is a dark blind spot, that's why when we look directly at stars they disappear momentarily. Your glow sights disappear also when you look at them directly.
So, to "see" things in the dark, you don't look at them directly, you scan the area with your eyes using your peripheral vision which in turn is also our night vision.
If your glow sights appear dark or they seem to disappear, move your firearm slightly off your center of vision and they "reappear".
Human night vision kicks in in about thirty minutes, more or less.
Avoid looking directly at light sources or your vision will turn to day vision.
At three or four O'clock in the morning, this is what your sights will look like:
Of course you can rekindle the Glow-On with a lamp in which case it will look like this:
Further more a good tactical lamp helps a lot. in fact training for low light shooting requires a lamp.

I'm just a spoke in the wheel but not a big deal.
America...a Constitutional Republic. NOT a democracy as the liberals would have us believe.
Give me Liberty or give me BACON!!!
You know that look women give you when they want some sugar? Me neither
Not really "night vision". You can't see in the dark due to U.V. damage done to the rod and cone receptors directectly in line with your pupil. Looking to the side does help. Pupil dilation is also a factor.
kind of related;
did you know you hear better with your mouth open? open your throat even so the sound can get to the tubes connecting to your ears. yawn first to "pop" your ears... then hold your mouth open.
Beans, Bullets, and Bandages. The only thing better than being ready is not having to use it!
