    I bought my first Glock the other day a Glock 22. Now I am considering my optics options and what I'm looking for. I'm leaning towards the Lasermax and Trijicon nightsights. What do you guys think and what is your experience with these 2 .:) :)

    Trijicons are fine.

    The Lasermax is unneeded unless you're carrying it, and even then, it's a training issue, I'd prefer basic nightsights.

    A pocketgun can profit from a laser (I've been shot with a laser-equipped .38 just clearing a pocket from concealment using a Simunition type round, and he couldn't have hit me that way without a laser). But a G22? Nah.

    As usual - Murph gives excellent advise.


    I'd only add to get a hard sided "kydex" type holster and you're ready for anything.

    I don't like either dots or night sights because the dots confuse my aging eyes and disrupt my focus on the front sight, but lots of people swear by them. As for lasers, they are excellent target designators for the bad guy -- they point straight back to you. If it were me, I'd save my money and spend it on training ammunition. If you have to have aftermarket sights, go for the Heinie slant pro. www.heinie.com

    I use XS Sight Systems (Used to be Ashley Outdoors) Express Big Dot tritium (front only) sights.

    Only one dot, a big one. Can't miss it. No other dots to confuse yourself. For shooting on the move, hitting moving targets, etc, they're hard to beat. Not combat sights (no 1" groups) but you will get effective COM hits.

    Similar issue; defensive guns get an Aro-Tek or Heinie target rear and a single tritium on the front, usually an Ameriglo - only dot on the gun. Heinie's front on my G21 will eventually get replaced with same but in the 318 (tritium) version. Not sure if CGR sells fronts only but I suppose I can get it from Heinie direct. ;j
