Here's a topic related question for you guys:
Are any of you using blacked out/non-tritium/no glowing element suppressor height sights on your RDS equipped pistols? Any thoughts on that for CCW pistols? I have WMLs, but wonder just how much traditional 'night sights' are still seen as needed as they were before widespread use of WMLs.
I run blacked out Ameriglos with my ACRO. I’ve never gotten the institutional LE boner for tritium, especially the three dot variety. I got into a discussion just yesterday about the validity of duty use fiber optic fronts (without a MRDS). I posited that we’re in the industry of identifying a threat (via white light or ambient) prior to sending rounds down range. When doing so, FO will light up - and if it doesn’t, just do what people did in the days before we *had* to line up three dots. Three glowing dots do nothing to help me discern whether a shot needs to be placed, or not.
Couldn't agree more. Spot on.
