    For carry purposes I prefer fixed. Much less chance of the sights shifting during carry.
    You don't necessarily need any special tools but a soft tipped or brass punch and a glock front sight tool are very helpful.
    I would suggest a drop of threadlock on the front sight post as well.

    I have Ameriglo sights on my duty/CCW G-20C. Nice and bright at night and a phosphorescent ring around the Tritium front so it REALLY jumps out in daylight

    Swat team leader told me he does not allow glowing sights on his handguns because it could give away their positions. Something to think about. My last two Glocks did not have them, my new G20 does.

    Was this 20 years ago? Dinosaurs used to say crap lke that when tritium sights were first available. So if the bad guy is BEHIND YOU, he will know where you are? Just stupid.

    Now a days, it is practically mandatory on a LE duty gun. In fact, starting in 2014 it IS mandatory on all duty guns with my agency.

    Moderator with the words stupid from your keyboard. Really?

    Just reporting on what I was told.

    Just who is stupid? Me for recalling history, or for the lieutenant of a major city, not using night sites on side arms twenty years ago?

    I somehow managed to get along Fifty plus years without night sights on anything, guess that makes me half a century stupid. Lol

    My new Glock has NS, so can I now get a pass to go from stupid to just slow?

    I've got the Glock tritium's on mine...no issues so far, but get a green laser...once you go laser, you never go back!!

    Mind you, I shot SASS for many years, did my time with just irons...the laser is a VERY handy tool on a CCW pistol!!

    Check out Crimson Trace's free video...it'll make your day!!
