On the flip side of that same statement. Using a laser will identify to the BG exactly where you are and he should aim. At that point it comes down to your ooda loop and how quickly you assess, identify, make a decision, then act.
I personally like my night sites. Easy target acquisition-day or night. Not to mention no "tell" of location.
It really does come down to training and level of understanding, comfort in use of firearm, and personal mindset.
In the end "to each their own". Good luck!!
