The sound of one hand fapping
- Apr 5, 2013
No idea if you’ve taken action yet but late last year I got some Trijicon tritium sights on closeout from Midway for about $110 for my HK VP9. HK installed them for $55 shipped.I have a Ruger P95, 9mm. Getting serious about upgrading the sights to tritium. Any thoughts or suggestions. Why upgrade, guys, I'm 77, Id like to at least hit the tree nearby.
I’m going to go ahead and disagree with some very knowledgeable people here and present a case for a home defense weapon being equipped with a tactical light and night sights. A laser may be helpful for some but it is no substitute.
Two critical aspects of home defense are target identification and sight alignment. The light is for telling burglars from your granddaughter. It’s slightly counter intuitive but there are many scenarios other than absolute darkness where your sights are in shadow or obscured. Tritium sights eliminate this concern via positive illumination and sight alignment at all times.
Something to consider, see below:
