    I've never had adjustable sights on a Glock and don't recommend them on a combat gun.

    An adjustable rear sight can be of benefit if you're shooting a variety of loads in a given caliber, or are planning to convert the gun to fire different caliber(s), particularly at distance in an outdoor setting.

    Picks for adjustable night sights are few, but you can pair an adjustable matte-black rear sight with a tritium front night sight of your choosing.

    For a carry gun, I would not go that route, as adjustable rears, and even the fronts sold as sets, tend to be sharp-edged and tall, and may snag on clothing.

    TFO's on all my carry guns. Couldn't be happier with them.

    The only time I've used adjustable rear is on my .22 conversion. Other than that, Trij HD's on all my pistols.

    They do. I have never had an issue with them, and I have several sets that have been on for years.

    Same here! I love them, and in daylight they almost jump out at me.

    Hard to beat them, day or night, sun or shade ;)

    Yes sir, TruGlo TFO's. Not for everyone, but definitely for me :)

    For a carry gun I do not see the need for adjustable sights. And honestly I haven't even put night sights on the last few handguns I bought. The night sights on my 1996ish P239 are barely visible and I have no plans on replacing them.

    I only prefer adjustables on a .22 handgun, just due to the wide range of ammo available for them and the small size of a squirrel or rabbit's head.

    I honestly don't like adjustables on any handgun. For me it's easier to just have a good zero and learn holds
