Since you seem to have missed it:
Virtually every single time I pick up my shotgun or one of my pistols to dry-run in my house at night, I can very easily identify targets/target areas yet only see the sites due to the tritium.
I have also shot outside at night where I could identify the target but would not be able to easily see sites that were not their own light source.
Sure, there are times it's too dark to ID a target without a light source. Sure, there are times it's kinda dark and you could see a fiber optic site.
But there are tons of times you can ID the target and the tritium lets you see your sites (or lets you pick them up more quickly)
