    Like the typical watch with lume it dies out if it remains in the dark. The glow can only be recharged after expeosure to light for some time. So kapag nasa sight ng baril mo, pagtagal wala na rin yung glow making it useless for night use.

    Bosing Paul,
    It's true that modern phosphorescent powders (ZnSO2, etc.) are
    charged with UV exposure, and then luminesce for only a brief
    period after the UV source is withdrawn, but at least they are safe.

    If that is the material RTMonforte is talking about, it might be
    easier to buy glow-in-the-dark cord, and then cut (round) sections
    from it to paste in the sight-dot recesses.


    I was worried about the slim chance that the powder being sold at
    Nepumoceno was radium. No way it could be tritium (too expensive).
    Radium and tritum luminesce from radioactive decay, and that glow
    just keeps on going.... for a number of years (more for radium than
    tritium).

    Perhaps I overreacted. ;e

    ;f ;f ;f

    Why not enriched U-235 bullets to make the ENEMY glow in the dark?
    Although, considering the thick shielding necessary for the
    shooter's protection, depleted uranium (non-radioactive) bullets
    na la'ang...heheh ---hanep sa bigat at inertia yung mga yun!

    Safe?

    UV-phosphorescent powder nga, except it glows for only about an
    hour and a half, usually much, much less, before needing a UV-
    exposure recharge.

    Tritium is low-radiation, safe, and just keeps on glowing
    on its own radioactive decay ---good for 4-6 yers, they say.

    Radium glows brighter and even longer, but if any of it
    --even its dust-- gets trapped in your lungs (or anywhere
    else where it can't easily be flushed out), baka maging foci pa
    for the big C.


    It would help to know exactly what is being sold at that
    watch supply store: maybe RTMonforte can tell us if it glows
    briefly after a UV charge, or just keeps on glowing indefinitely.
