    While shooting poorly at Couer D'Alene I noticed that Dale Rhea's wife was shooting with an orange colored front sight. Does anyone know what type of sight that was??? I would like a legal front sight that was more easily picked up. Any suggestions?

    It might have been a Heinie, they require added paint here in the south!

    It is a Heinie front and rear sight. The front sight is cut down from .125 to .090 and has a dot of orange paint on it. They are the same as my sights.

    Dale,
    Looked like you were using a scope or something? Great shooting by the way!!!

    The width is cut from .125 to .090? What model Heinie do you use? I sometimes have trouble picking up the stock sights so I might be changing sights soon also (though usually my poor shooting is caused by lack of MENTAL focus, not eye focus!).

    CustomGlockRacing's latest tip also mentioned changing sights, and recommended either BoMar or Heinie. Anybody have any comments on which is better?

    Thanks

    I like the Bomars. I cut the front to .115, about as thin as you can go without special machining. It provides for fast pickup on targets, especially the second shot. I like the fact I can adjust them for point of impact with my reloads. I don't think you'll go wrong with either. Some folks have had trouble with the Heinies rusting though.

    Thanks Hapuna,

    I was using a scope, or something, on my UL pistol. It is a model G17 with a C-More scope. My Stockmiester pistol, that I shot before I shot my Unlimited, is also a G17 with Heinie 320 Glock sights on it.
