For chest wounds, there's nothing like it, nothing imho unless you spring for a RMR setup.
For accuracy?...... Well, I flat out got discouraged using mine and they were quickly replaced for a set of TFO's.
I consider myself a better than average shooter having won IDPA SSP shoots against noteworthy competitors however with those sights, if someone had a knife to someone I care abouts throat, I wouldnt even ponder the idea of taking a shot, not for a moment. I had ZERO confidence in those sights.
(I don't recommend nor romanticize the idea of that scenario, just making a bold point)
I'm sure I'll get ripped for mentioning it but James Yeager can hit very accurately with em out to 50 yards and still can hit steel at 100 yards with em... ymmv, regardless your opinion of him he's an excellent shooter.
