    No damage. Just a little alcohol on a Q-tip

    My brain ignores the dots. It's like they are not even there. I see the outline of the rear and front sights and line them up, focus mostly on the front sight, and shoot! Unless I'm shooting while on the move and then it's really more like point shooting - no time to line up sights, with or without dots or lines or whatever.

    Purely psychological i'm sure, but I taped the rear vials on my HD's yesterday and "for me", it made a difference. Something about that just drew me to focus on the front sight like I should have been all along. Out of sight out of mind I guess...but I kind of liked it !!

    Have you done the eye dominance test I posted in your other thread?

    I'm using the Trijicon HD night sights and I'm more than happy with leaving the vials shining away. If by some odd circumstance I need a precision shot in the dark, I have the three dots to line up. But that situation is fairly unlikely, it's much more likely a night encounter will be in a parking lot at bad-breath distance where sights don't matter and I'll likely be shooting from retention.

    A note about the Trijicon HDs, single best improvement I think I could have made to my Glocks. Initially, I was concerned that the big U rear sight would impair accuracy but that isn't the case, at least for me. If anything, it may have improved accuracy a tad. Great sights!

    I need to get my Heinies replaced on my main gun. The HDXRs is what I plan on going with.

    I have Trijicon HD's on all my pistols, and love them! Only my revo has factory sights, my Ruger GP100 Match Champion with a fiber optic front sight. It's the only side arm I shoot for distance, and it's my hunting companion.

    Prefer trijicon, or gold/brass bead in front and black in rear.

    This is my K6S. It was white, 3 dots. I do not like 3 dots. I blacked out the rear white dots with nail polish and used traffic cone orange nail polish on the front. 100% better for me.
