I have to agree. I had a set of 3-dot night sights on my Glock 17 and could just never a adjust to them. I actually seem to be one of the few people who LIKE the stock Glock sights (front dot rear outline) although I am slowly replacing them wit 2-dot Heine night sights for the better low light visibility.

Well, of you are talking BULLSEYE competition, I would agree. IMO for that king of shooting its hard to beat plain black partridge front/square notch rear sights for a precise sight picture. For action shooting, though, I like the 2-dot sights above.

I like the Bomar sights on my Series 70. White U rear and a ramp line front. They are fixed and have been on for forty years. During the competition days used some Sight Black, I do not care for dots, lasers, or glow in the dark.

I'm a big fan of the Hiene Straight 8 sights on pistols. But I"ll usually be pretty good with whatever comes on a pistol when I get it. If I don't like the sights I"ll usually not be too keen on a purchase. I do paint some of them up wit ha bright paint. I've used that Glo-On stuff and had good luck wit hit too. Most of my rifles are scoped but have some with open sights.

I prefer factory fixed sights. They are simple and no moving parts. Pay attention to the gun and it will teach you how to shoot it.
