    Here's what happens if we go the Glow-On way:
    Now we can see the gunsights, yes?


    glow-On is a great alternative to more expensive solutions.
    I'm giving you the wheel, not a Ferrari!!!!!
    Glow-On helps but it won't ever make a nighttime operator out of you I'm afraid.
    For that, you'll have to spend thousands of dollars or join the special forces...



    Go with the glow

    How we do it is so simple.
    We place a tiny droplet of paint over the same old gunsights.
    Done.


    Clan the surface fist with alcohol and a new, fresh paper towel.
    Oily surfaces and paint don't get along well.


    Here is the Orange.
    Please notice how the glow is a bit green.







    One can use a hair drier to accelerate the drying process.
    the paint cures in a week then the binder clears and the glow I much brighter.





    Please share with your friends.

    Everyone watch the clock!


    We got a new piece, an H&K45 with stock gun sights, white dots.
    Weare using Glow-On Yellow on this one. and used a big alarm clock to timestamp the pictures.


    A note:
    We used Glow-On original and Orange on the clock.
    We can read the time all night long, just like any other alarm clock with glow paint.


    Here our specimen:






    Ready for the treatment:

    Done...Are you watching the clock?
    Not my fastest time, had to do it a couple of times.
    I didn't like the first try, wiped it off with a wet towel and did it again.


    Not bad for the cost of a fast food meal bucks right?

    So this is what we will do now:


    Remember the small glow dots we created using Glow-On different colors over a small rubber 'Crafty Magic Melt Glue Craft'
    We basically placed several small tiny beads of paint.
    We let them dry.
    We are going to place them on this gun just to check the possibilities.

    A short pause.


    Yesterday I received an email from a Glow-On user whose paint dried inside the vial.
    He ordered two years ago.
    He said -What can I do?'-
    I said: -You just did, thanks for your support, I'll send a fresh vial asap!-


    We'll send a replacement first thing tomorrow.


    100% lifetime support guarantee.
    Just be nice please, my people taking care of the messages are human too, lol!

    Fifth, Glow-On Red. A very popular color.
    This is not your regular firetruck red guys, it's a fluorescent red nonetheless, great visibility in daylight and a nice glow.






    Sixth, Glow-On Orange.
    A nice bright fluorescent Orange day color.

    1.We recommend to 'pair' your firearm with a good quality tactical handheld LED lamp.


    2.Lamps attached to firearms in a civilian scenario violate some gun safety rules:"Never point a firearm at anything unless you intend to destroy it."


    3.A tactical lamp held with one and can be used tactically to divert attention away from you.
    It will also allow you to direct your muzzle into a safe position without losing visual contact.









    Without getting into any technical details.
    A few considerations.


    So, how does it work?


    -Glow-On absorbs energy from light or heat and releases it in the form of afterglow for a period of hours.
    Imagine swiftly filling a glass of water under a faucet and then drinking it one drop at a time.
    That is a great analogy really.




    What type of lamp is best?


    -Any tactical lamp of good quality will do.
    -The more powerful the lamp the brighter and the longer the afterglow will last.
    A good LED lamp works best during nighttime.
    LED technology gets updated constantly, smaller brighter lamps are released for sale often.
    -Incandescent lamps are pretty marginal and are mostly outdated today, there are exceptions to this statement, of course, but they are big and expensive.


    How long should I expose Glow-On to light to charge it?


    -In daylight, sunlight charges the Glow-On in less than a second.
    Your sights are charged already upon entering a building for instance.


    -During daylight, if you conceal carry your firearm, there is enough light around to keep the sights charged.
