However, my only experience of Tritium is on the Try folding battle sights for the rifle which are, to be honest, utterly useless. I shut my self in my furnace room in total darkness—couldn't find the sights! Eventually, by locating them with my fingers so I knew exactly where to look, I could just barely make out the rear circle.



I think you just needed to turn the rifle around so that you were looking at the back of the sights. :lol2:

No one should make decisions for us when it comes to guns and gun carry. If we do things we're not comfortable with because someone told us it's 'right' it becomes a distraction in an event where clarity and simplicity is needed.

This could explain why the laser is so painful!

Got the Speed Sights installed on my wife's M&P 9mm full-size yesterday and dialed them at the range today. She opted for the tritium's as well so as to maintain identical configurations. I love these sights. The point-of-aim (POA) and point-of-impact (POI) on both the M&P .40 S&W and her M&P 9mm are spot-on. This wasn't so with our old TruGlo TFO's.

With our TruGlo's the POA always had to be a smidgen (technical term) high in order to hit the desired POI. Thinking maybe it was just me, I validated this observation using a bench rest. So, I just got used to allowing for this at the range and during training, especially at longer distances. Well, with the Speed Sights that's not the case... aim for the bully's-eye, hit the bully's-eye. Sweet! :thumbsup:

Curse D-FIN and Snurd, though, for suggesting these sights as now I want to fork out more funds to put the non-tritiums on both our Shields. :crying:
