Truglo tfo's are awesome sights! I have a set on my glock 22. They really glow in any amount of light. Where do you have to hold your sights to hit center target? Do cover the target with your front sight post or do you hold at 6 o'clock with the tfo?

On my P239, I cover the center with the front sight and get good results. The P-6 sights hold at 6:00 . Either works just fine at 25 feet, SD distance. Just being able to "instantly " pick up a sight picture is a JOY ! The Sig sight offerings seem to be either #6 and #8 sights, or #8 and #8 sights ( front and rear). The 6/8 set will give a lower point of impact than and 8/8 set. My P-6 tended to shoot low with combat sights ( 7/8 set) so when I ordered TruGlo sights for it, I bought the 8/8 set to raise the Point of Impact. I'm more than happy with them.

Thanks bbertram! That's good info! I'd like all of my firearms to hold at 6 o'clock if I can help it. As I stated previously, I am more of a instinctual shooter, relying more on muscle memory then the sights, but I do use my sights heavily for the first several shots to ensure my muscle memory is collaborated correctly (if that makes any sense?). If I can get my Sigs to a 6 o'clock hold, that would adjust my Sigs to how I'm normally used to holding. Then I can focus on instincts as opposed to relearning point of aim and point of impact. I own sights from several different manufactures but the TFOs are some of my favorites. I'll definitely be looking into those.

When I had a Glock 36, it was equipped with the XS Big Dot sights, and that BIG DOT on the bullseye was all I needed. A very accurate gun , and easy to shoot instinctively . At SD distances , I don't worry too much about Point of Impact. A two inch difference proabably won't save a BG, but at 25 yards and better, THEN a consistent sight picture, pistol to pistol, would be a blessing .

I try to train at all distances. I do believe in "aim small, miss small" . Even when I'm instinctively shooting, I'm "aiming" for an exact spot, just without using my sights. I definitely understand (and do not disagree with) your philosophy on SD distances and POI, but I always worry about POI. I'm always striving for accuracy.

I like to sometimes shoot from the hip , and my dream would be blasting 8 ping pong balls with a full mag from my Sig P-6 . Haven't gotten there yet.

Stock Sig sights on my P226 & P239. No issues, fast target acquisition and great accuracy, even weak hand.


But, that's my grip & my eyes. YMMV

Whatever gets you on target best is what is best for YOU.

My P229r came with SIGLite night sights. Very bright and easy to acquire.

My P238 came with night sights on it already. I wouldn't recommend anything other than those night sights.
