    I was going to put this in the sights and optics forum.

    But I really had to show all you guys. I just put some new Ameriglo I-Dot Pro's on my G21.

    These sights are AWESOME. The tritium is SOOO much brighter than the factory night sights and the Orange circle around the front is so easy to pickup in daylight.

    I HIGHLY reccomend these to anyone looking for a great all around day and night sight system for ANY Pistol.

    Also, the comparable Trijicon HD's cost about $150.00...I picked these up for $70.00...and as you can see they say Trijicon all over them. I installed them myself, really simple and took about 10 minutes with punch, hammer and front sight tool.

    I would paint a white outline on the rear and on the front as it is on the glock's stock to perform a long range shooting. The white outlines helps a lot in a long range shooting (+50yards).

    I'd get a rifle for such long shots.

    :cool:

    I dont get the point of this at all.

    Are you suggesting that 2 white outlines around the tritium inserts will somehow translate to me shooting better at 50+ yards instead of the bright orange?

    Because...no offense...but that sounds pretty retarded.

    50+ yards are no place for .45 ACP pistol shots, that's why I have an AR15. And on top of that, the white outlines physically do nothing for you as far as aiming goes...so ya I don't get it.

    Agreed. And top of all of this, what is the threat when the targets are over 50 yards away?

    Guys,

    I would do the rifle in a long range shooting. However, I have my own pleasure to shoot my .45 ACP in a 50 yards range. I spent most of my shooting practice at 0 - 35 yards with my G30. I do practice few times with +50 yards to just be familiar with it. I just thought I would share with you all with my recommendation to make it even better. I like the white outline so I could adjust POI (point of impact) to send .45 into the target.

    SCmaster, you'll never know when a threat is shooting at you from a +50 yards so you might want to be prepared for that. It is better to be over-prepared than to be under-prepared. Just like what Kaperenick did to the Packers from last Saturday game. :)

    Now if someone is shooting at me from 50 yards, he had better hit me, for I am going to hit him - several times.

    Not around the dots. Just paint on the edge of lines in the rear sight system and whole thing in the front without touching the tirijicon dot.

    I hope my attachment could be viewed in this thread. Please let me know.

    Long range handgun shooting makes you a better shot at close range. If you don't have the basics correct at long range, you won't hit anything at long range. Makes short range shooting a snap. I still practice some at 50 to 100 yards with my Kahr mouse guns.

    I used to practice 50 yard handgun shooting at moving targets when I lived near a range set up for that. I won first place in a championship one year shooting moving targets at 50 yards with an iron sighted handgun. I still have the trophy.
