I have several guns with target sights and I have found that once they are adjusted I never change them
. From the news articles about the today's police shootouts, where the police shoot 30 to 40 rounds and the bad guy is hit once ( plus at least one officer who is hit by friendly fire ), apparently the police don't have much use for sights either. Gutter sights may be just the thing for a close in personal weapon where the longest shot will be no more than 10 feet. I think that if I was in the market for a new gun I would consider them.If the truth be known, 99and 9/10 percent of the people who carry a hand gun will never use it for it's intended purpose, and when used, 99and 9/10 percent of those who do use it for self defence will never see the sights, they will point and shoot.
Maybe. But if you are going to use the gun to practice with and target shoot with, why not have sights? Just my preference.....
I own a bunch of scary guns. You want em? Come and take em.....
