Oh, and by the way we did buy a new pistol and I think TS would be so proud. A HK VP 9....sweet...now I need to have some time to shoot that bad boy..... Maybe I will take it to my training May 5th to get some usage out of it.
I prefer night sights.

My favorite are the Trijicons, but take a look at several brands and pick the ones you prefer.

Stick with the green dots, the sights will remain visible longer.

Alternate is the combo tritium and fiber optic, like the Tru-Glo.

They are easily found on line.

Unless you have installed a set before, I recommend that you have a gunsmith put them on. The front one takes an odd wrench and the back some hammering, or a sight removal tool.

The factory Glock sights suck. Good upgrade.

TR: Thanks, I will do some research on some others and narrow it down. I do have to say I like the green sights. The HK VP9 that I just bought has them, and they are sweet. I do intend on having them installed by a gunsmith, I would never try that on my own. LOL....
