    Do any of yall just use the front sight as night sight and rear sight the stock sight? Im thinking of getting NS and was wondering if this worked well. Also if you do which sight do you like?

    To answer your first question, yes, some people do that. I never have though so I don't know how well it works.

    To answer your second question, I've tried Trijicon, Meprolight and AmeriGlo in various forms and color combinations and have ultimately decided that my favorite is the XS Sight Systems Big Dot night sights. I can get on target faster with the Big Dots than any other sight system that I have tried. I have the Big Dots on my G19 and am expecting shipment of three more sets for my G17, G23 and G36 later this week.

    Some people seem to prefer having only a front night sight. However, my preference is for having front and back night sights, and I really like the AmeriGlo sights I have.

    I had the front only night sight setup for years, but now that I have the full night sight setup, I realize how lacking that really was.

    I would not use only a front night sight again.

    I like both Glock OEM, Trijicon and Meprolights, Meps I think are a bit nicer and they are cheaper, too.

    I'm thinking about just devoting the night sight money to a laser my next go round. Maybe Lasermax...

    Well I went with Trijicon night sights. They seem to look pretty good. I'm going to try them in a low light setting and test my accuracy with them. I haven't shot with them on yet but I think I'm gonna enjoy them.
