Which do you choose and why!!!
Im looking for a set of night sight for my carry guns. My main edc is a glock 23, i also carry my 17 every now and then. I have the stock sights on both now, and the only other time i shot with night sight was when i was shooting in my qual class for my ccw permit and i shot extreamly well with them they were on a glock 17, hence the reason my 17 was my first purchase, im getting of topic sorry abour that guys. Anyways i've been hearing good things about the XS big dots on a carry weapon. Ie, faster target acquisition due to picking up the front sight with ease, more basically a point and shoot platform.

I guess i would like to kno should i just stick with a more traditional 3 dot system, or should i give the big dots a shot. Any1 with exsperiance's with both plzzzzz chime in, i could use your help... The good the bad the ugly let me kno. THANKS in advance.

Forgot to mention i shot trijicans love em, so basically it's kinda a XS big dot vs trijican's kind of thing.

Forgot to mention the night sights i shot before were Trijicans, shot very well with them. But i must admit im kinda intriged with the XS big dots.

Basically its a big dot vs trijican kinda thing.

I use Truglo TFO sights with yellow rear and green front. Best sights out there IMO. I use them on my duty weapon which is a G17.

Also, thing I like the most about the TFO sights is that you get the same sight picture in day and color change or anything.

Thanks usmc-03, ive seen those on a glock that one of the guys that works at a local gun range own. They were really bright and he swears by them. I just dnt think i could be able to charge the slide with 1 arm if need be. But they do look great!!!. And i could see why plenty people love em.

I have the trijicon night sights on my Glock 22 and I love them! They are very bright and I shoot well with then day or night

I have not had a problem charging with one hand. They won't catch on pants or other clothing like some will when charging with one hand...but I use my duty belt or the back of my boot and it works great. I've also used my holster for one hand charging.

I have XS Big Dot sites on my carry piece. That big dot front sight is like an eye magnet.
