I'm looking to get one or the other installed on my xd, but don't know which one. I can find the night sights online for ~$85, plus $75 installation (Gander Mountain) = ~$160. CT grips can be found for around ~$250. So, figure $90 difference between the two. Not to blow my own horn, but I'm a pretty darn good shot with my xd right now. Would throwing a laser on it make me too reliant on the red dot and make me lose my edge when shooting with the sights? Just a thought that came to mind.
