    A few questions please



    - Which brand night sites did you choose?

    - How has your choice held up since you installed them? Any vials broken? Tritium inserts fell out? Sights got loose?

    - Have you had any holster issues with your choice of sights?

    - If unsatisfied, what would you have done differently had you known?

    - Would you prefer to forego the sights and just use a laser?
    I have Trijicons on two of my Glocks. I have had no negative issues. I've had them on my G19 since 1997 and on my G23 since 2003. They newer ones are definately brighter. That being said, I can still aquire a good sight picture in low light with the 11 year old pair.

    I am not a fan of lasers. JMO.

    It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!
    You cannot choose the conditions for a gunfight, so train in all conditions!

    I have XS standard dot on one, and Meprolight another. I started out with Trijicon before the XS. The XS big dot is to big for my tastes.

    Meprolights are a little bigger dot than the Trijicon. I like the little bit bigger dot.

    XS is one of the sights that people love or hate for the most part. I like them so they are on my primary carry gun. I can hit out to 50 yards with no problems.

    I have used guns with Truglo TFOs and they work great, but I have heard from a couple people who had problems with the front light-pipe coming loose.
    I had this problem with my TFOs.

    I switch to XS standard dots and could not be happier.

    I have been interested in the XS night sights but have had a hard time deciding on the Standard or the Big Dot.
    How much larger is the standard dot over say the front sight on my M&P40c, is it worth going with the smaller dot over the big??? I dont have $120 to play with to find out the hard way.
    I have seen the Big dot in person and love the design, I am just worried about the loss of accuracy (I have alot of room for improvement) due to the sight covering such a large part of the target.
