    Does this mean I can only have the stock sights for the competition?

    You can have night sights, Heine sights, fiber optics, just about anything except red dots or ghost rings. Check with gssfonline.com for all the rules. You don't need Glock sights out of the box to be in amatuer division or master stock.-

    The best way to describe Ghost Ring Sights is:

    Useless on a pistol.:)

    Useless because GSSF is a game of accuracy at speed, with shots out to 25 yards. The Ghost Ring sights on a pistol provide fast, close up shots, but they lack accuracy beyond 10 yards, making 15, 20 and 25 yard shots difficult.

    "Ghost Ring", or aperture sights work VERY well on LONG Guns (especially rifles, but also slug-shooting shotguns) due to the optical properties of the eye as they relate to the sights on the gun. I put them on every one of my long guns that I can.

    However, it is necessary for the eye to be positioned within a few inches of the rear sight for these optical properties to be effective. This can be accomplished when you can lay your cheek along the buttstock of a long gun.

    Handguns, on the other hand, are used AT ARMS LENGTH.

    You CANNOT get your eye close enough to the rear sight of a handgun where an aperture sight would be effective without banging your eye and face with the slide, or the entire gun, when it recoils.

    Aperture sights on handguns are a complete misapplication. They are made simply to be sold to the gullible who do not understand the principles involved.

    They do NOT work better than the standard "patridge" sight pictured sights that come from the factory on most handguns and are a complete waste of time and money.

    Very good explanation, thanks!

    What do you think about these sights? I like the idea of being able to see more target with these.
