While I'd agree they are not ideal for long-distance shooting. there's a video around of a guy (James Yeager) hitting pepper poppers at 100 yards with an XS equipped Glock. That's better shooting than I'm capable of with any sights. Then again, I'm unlikely to be asked to join the FBI HRT anytime soon.acparmed said:I have the Big Dot sights on one of my 1911's and as soon as I can afford it they are going on my other one.
They are not great for long distance accuracy, but for close range combat or competition they can't be beat IMO.
Get the Sig P245! Even if it has NO sights. You won't find a more comfortable 45 to carry anywhere. I put Ashleys on my wife's Commander 45 and she seems to like them, but when I use the gun at the range, I find my groups aren't as tight. I know, it's a quick draw thing, faster sight acquisition, yada yada yada....I still like the old meprolight or trijicon 3 dot thing, with yellow on the rear and green bright and up front. That's my rig on MY P245. Seriously considering the new CT lasers for the Glock 27, though.oldgunteacher said:I have an opportunity to buy a new Sig P245, with Ashley Big Dot sights, for a good price. Has anyone heard of the Ashley Big Dot sights? Does anyone have any personal experience with them? I know Sig is discontinuing the P245, but it fits my hand well.
