Sure, makes sense... Update for you guys...I'm sorry but I'm not convinced. Do you "charge" them nightly or hope to light them up when the BGs arrive and you need them quickly!? I'd be careful about saving money on SD night time sights, lights or lasers. My .02.
Which sight did you use? You have a write up?I also would very much like to know how these work. Looking at the website, these Nightsighters require exposure to light to "charge up" and glow in the dark. I'd really like to know how much light exposure they need and how long they glow in the dark. I installed a tritium Glock front sight on my 709, and if these provide glow for a long enough time, they would be a nice inexpensive option for the real sights.
That's actually a pretty slick solution! I went from a Crimson Trace to a 190 lumen rail light. If I had to walk around or clear the house I'd have a flashlight with me anyway - the CT will not help in that regard SO I would have 1 hand on my Glock with 40 S&W loaded hot. This means shooting one handed (less accurate) AND less control of your weapon in a 'contact' situation. It took me a while to come too what I was most comfortable with having NO home invasions to practice in (works for me). Any night sight will be dependent on having SOME ambient light to at least have a silhouette of a BG, right? Staying in cover with 1 door to watch might work out well but I still believe that walking around will require a flashlight. Your plan?!?!I have a security box on my nightstand, I think I could rig it with a 5watt nightlight bulb that shuts off when it is opened.
