For defensive pistol use, having a bright front sight that is quick to acquire and easy to put on target is essential. American Rifleman’s Joe Kurtenbach certainly has a penchant for sighting arrangements that feature a bold front sight for daylight use and a fairly plain rear sight that will not distract the eyes. Low light capability, in the form of tritium inserts, is also important, as many personal-defense scenarios take place at night or in poorly lit locales.
This week, Lock, Stock & Barrel surveys several day/night sight options that meet those requirements. Learn more in this week's NRA Gun Gear of the Week video.
