    I'm sure this has been discussed a million times but just curious on what sights people are using and why! Going on my G19. Going to use for some target and some carry! Like Big Dots! Anyone using them if you could post a pic that would be great. Thanks

    Depends what the use is. A competitive shooter might want and all black notch-and-post. 3-dot night sights would be better for a carry or HD gun.

    I'm just the opposite. I use what works best for me and dont really care what anybody else uses.Out of 18 different Glocks that I own, I use Meprolight night sights on my HD & CCW guns and factory Plastic Glock adjustables on everything else. They work great for me and in my world, I'm the only one that matters...:cool:

    I like Trijicons sight picture for carry/target use. I shoot a **** of a lot better with them vs. "stock" GNS aren't bad either. I guess the three dot sight picture just works for me.

    I just put a set of Dawson Precision plain black front and rear sights on my G19 and I really like the set up. I use the same sight design on my Hi-Power and 1911's so they all look the same and sight the same. I never cared much for a white dot front sight. I get better sight alignment with the plain black sights.

    I used to use Trijicons. They are OK sights, but the white outlines and tritium posts are exposed to the elements. They get dirty and the white has a tendency to chip out with hard use.

    I switched to Meprolights and have been much happier. They have a clear epoxy of some sort over the outlines/tubes that protects them quite well. Don't forget that they are also cheaper!

    I bought Heine SlantPro 3-D Night Sights for my Glock 23. Big improvement over the factory sights for my old eyes.

    I have Hilon Yam's 10-8 sights. NS front post and plain black serrated rear. Great for target shooting.

    For carry/hd I prefer the I-dot style. Heine amongst others make them.

    For a defensive gun, I like Trijicon. They are simple, and they work.

    Meprolight TruDot gets my vote every time. I put them on everything, except my G39 which already had Trijicons on it - I like those too, just not as much.

    I will say that I like the way Meprolight makes the white outline bigger on their sights than what Trijicon does. I do pick up the Mepro's better in the daylight than the Trijicons.
