A little food for thought . . .

You may never have contemplated the situation before, but let’s think about it now:

If it is too dark to see what is in your opponent’s hands, then you really can’t identify a threat and you should not shoot, even if you can see your night sights?

If it is light enough to identify your opponent as a threat, then is it also light enough to see your sights so you don’t really need night sights.

Most people are unaware that night sights by themselves are only useful for about 20 minutes during a normal 24-hour period.

It is in that short window of time, when the sun is going down (or coming up) and there is still enough light to identify your target as a threat, but not enough light to clearly see your sights, that night sights really shine as an important addition to your weapon.
