Are Night Sights Really Necessary?

I fear this article may stir up some controversy.  This is not, however, my intention.  Rather, I intend to outline a portion of my own journey in the area of pistol sights, share my own conclusions, and invite you to do your own testing.  Be warned:  the choice of pistol sights—just like the choice of […]

What Playing Tennis With My Brother Taught Me About Handgun Sights

  To date, I have written only one article on handgun sights, reviewing the Ameriglo I Dot Pros that are currently worn by all of my Glock handguns.  John, on the other hand, has written reviews of several different sights (see here, here, here, and here!…more to come?) as he continues on his personal sight […]
