    To me there is nothing more comforting then the soft glow of the night sights on my night stand. I have a fiber optic on my Mossy 12ga. and that would be my "Room clearing" weapon and it has a flash light mounted on the pump arm and that combo works great. As far as giving my position away... eh with the lay out of my house if he is behind me he is hunkered down behind my bed so I almost want him to see me coming.

    Since the question was what sight we 'prefer,' On a custom gov't 1911, the sight picture I'd prefer

    Bo-Mar Combat BMCS rear sight with tritium bar, slide cut in rear slide set forward
    Truglo TFO front sight, glock style front sight slide cut
    30 LPI serrations on top of slide
    30 LPI checkering on back of slide

    Brand new tritium vials please

    Night Sights

    I have standard adjustable on my G19, white front dot. For real night shooting get a laser site. You can click it on when you want it, otherwise be unseen. Have not yet bought the laser but plan to get a Lasermax which replaces the guide rod and does not change the form of the pistol. Daytime use the white dot is fine even with old eyes, Remember, front site, front site, front site!

    Night sights work better in low light than they do in total darkness. For total darkness give me a good flashlight. Regards, Richard

    all of my pistols have Trijicon (green F/yellow R).

    i black out the white circles on the rear sights for daylight shooting(its irrelevant in lowlight).

    ...thats my favorite set-up.

    a NS on the front is a must,but i would prefer a non-illuminated sight on the rear over 3 green dots...green/yellow is the best imo though.

    i also have SF X300 on all of my pistols with rails(which includes my carry gun,M&P) and often carry a G2L(handheld).

    the only way i can see NS giving away your position is if the threat is between 4-8 o'clock(in other words,behind you!),in which case i probably have the pistol tucked in the ready anyway...ntm he already has the drop on you and you're probably sol.

    also i find it isnt just about being able to manage to see your sights in low-light,but how quickly you can pick them up.i can acquire a sight picture much faster in low-light with my NS set-up.

    i got the truglo TFO for my XD......... my only recomendation is to get the 2 color set.... the yellow rear and green front make it MUCH easier to pick up @ night than all 3 being green....

    I prefer the adjustable white dot sights. I aim with the white dot. I have never been in a situation where I want or need night sights, because I mostly shoot during the day, or at decently-lit or short-range targets at night.

    Sights

    My vote is for Truglo TFO sights. Tritium & Fiber Optic. They light up bright when sunlight hits them & glow bright all night. I keep my in my dresser drawer where I can see the 2 dots in case I have to grab it in the dark. Unfortunately, they don't make a set for my H&K USP Compact.

    I am in the "it depends on the gun " camp too. I like night sights a lot....especially with my aging eyes. I have a buddy with a crimson trace grip sight and once it was dialed in it is hard to beat that. It flares in the face of tradition but like he says, if he needsit for real he is sure the BG isn't gonna give him a Time out to find his glasses and put them on ok now time in again..........

    I have night sights on all my guns that I use for home defense.

    Mostly home defense comes into play at night ... hense the night sites.

    My duty gun as a policeman had night sights on it nad they came in very handy more than once.

    I love my stock sights, which are white dot sites, and night sites. Only a short moment of exposure to any kind of light, a lamp will do, will give me 30 minutes of illuminated sights. But I agree with some of the posts I have read on here. It is most often the case in self defense that you will not use the sights.
