Back in February, I posted on a little experiment that I performed that lead me to decide that, yes, night sights were worth the money. This weekend I came across an article my someone whose opinion I respect a great deal, Dr. Sherman House, who performed a similar test based on the recommendation of an even more respected Tom Givens. His results were markedly different than mine so I wanted to share them here (LOW LIGHT, RED SIGHTS, AND TOM GIVENS’ GLOCK 35).
I read it with an open mind, considered their point of view but I still hold with my own observations and testing. The extra $40 for a front sight that glows in the dark won’t significantly impact my training or practice efforts and won’t break my budget. The potential advantage in certain, very limited, situations makes this a worthwhile option. Your choices for self-defense tools are your and yours alone and what is “right” for one person may not be right for another. Read the good doctor’s article and make your own decisions.
