    Being old, eyesight deteriorating, I’ve changed pistol platforms. Pushed away are the revolvers, boxed up the 1911’s. Upgraded the sights on my Glocks (Ameriglo and Warren Tactical ) . That’s what I’ll use from now on. Everything’s good again.

    If your primary purpose is SD then sights and poor eye sight are secondary to point and shoot skills needed in the great majority civilian SD encounters. Range use is however a different story.

    As I've undergone age-related eyesight changes, I've gotten away entirely from auto-pistols for home defense. I find my 3-inch Ruger SP101 loaded with five rounds of 357MAG or 38SPL+P to be a better-suited handgun that is easier to point naturally (helped by its muzzle heaviness). I don't miss a weapon-mounted light or night sights for home defense service, and high capacity statistically is nonsense for such service. My Glocks stay stowed away.

    It took a little sanding on the base to get it to fit. I didn’t have to use the supplied set screw. I didn’t like the fiber front sight so, Ameriglo tritium was used.

    Interesting and revealing thread. I see posters final admission of range toy operation of their firearms and another no longer using a Glock.

    The ability to change with ones physical conditions and admit their lack of dexterity and ability to safely operate a firearm is paramount to humanity as a whole.

    May your changes still allow you safe handling for the future.

    Those things are terrible. I had an opportunity along with a group of other teammates all from various SOF backgrounds. Everyone universally hated this idea on a pistol.
    I am sure somebody likes them though.

    :rolleyes:

    Well, sorry that you and your young commandos with good eyes didn't like them. But for me and my 60 year old eyes and bifocals, they have allowed me to shoot much better now. I have them on my 17 and 26.

    I never have shot a Ghost Ring sight. As far as that goes, never had a pistol in my hand with one on it.
    I can't see spending the money for something to just try out.
    Some like them and some don't.
    As my eyesight gets worse, I'll do what I can.
    I do a lot of point shooting too.
