Default Competition Sights

Hi all.

Just picked up my XD-45 Tactical. I will be shooting it in IDPA and was wondering if anyone had any experience with comptetition sights on this model and could make some suggestions/recommendations. I have seen a pic of the Dawson fixed with a wide-notch rear and it is close to what I am looking for. (Narrow front, wide rear/fiber optic)

So long as they are IDPA legal, it's all good! I use the stock 3 dot. Sometimes I black out the rear dots. Any sight that lets you clearly see the front site will serve you well. Certainly a bright fiber should work well.

That being said, have you tried to shoot a match, or a dot drill, with the standard sites. You may not really need a new set. After all, the beauty of IDPA is its aversion to equipment upgrades. However, pimping one's pistol to make it unique is certainly an admirable thing.
