    Does anyone have these I am thinking about getting them for my g22. But for $120.00 bucks I was hoping to get some feed back first so I'm not throwing money away.

    Yes. I have them on a 19. They are not target shooting type sights but combat sights. Fast to acquire and fire. I like them

    They came(LE trade in) on my Glock 23 2nd gen when I got it. I liked them...fast acquisition combat type sight not a bulls eye accuracy type...I liked them till the loctite+screw on the front sight loosened enough and the sight flew off one day at the range...never did find it and I was not gonna pay for another set so I went with Warren Tacticals..another great sight.

    I personally love the Big Dots... so long as you know what they are designed for, you will be hard pressed to find a better sight in that price range. They are very very fast on target, and easily line up.

    I've had them on my CCW pistol for ages and have lots of time with them (the pair I have, were actually bought when they were still called "Ashley Outdoor Big Dots")... this has been my observation. This is just me, you may well have a different experience with them.

    0-10yds -- I keep very very small groups. I can take a fairly fast 5 shot string, and easily keep them just below the width of two fingers. Double taps are also very very tight.

    11-15yds -- Still acceptable accuracy, but my shots begin to open up. Double taps open up a bit, but still acceptable.

    16-18yds -- Accuracy is rapidly decreasing. Double taps are becoming more difficult to actually call a "group".

    18+yds -- I can reuse my targets next time I go shooting. ;)

    Just my personal experience.. there's a video on Youtube of a guy shooting targets at 50 and 75yds with Big Dots. I have no doubt it can be done, but I just can't do it (traditional 3 Dots, are fine for this).

    IMO, Big Dots are meant for use as a close quarters, combat sight. When used for this, they are AWESOME.
