    Three dots are too many. I prefer a narrow, well-supported blade with tritium donut up front and a wide, deep rear notch with a single tritium dot. Line 'em up and let 'em fly.

    Back in the dark ages we used muzzle flash to outline the sights for followup rounds.

    I did the same with a black sharpie. We noticed it too, fortunately it was in a training environment and was fixed immediately. If it's bright to the naked eye, it's really going to show with NODs

    I will add to Gabe's comment. Brent, Gabe, and I did a bunch of work with different night sight setups both with and without NODs, in the dark out at Casa de Suarez where there is little to no light pollution before Gabe went forward with how he set up the SI night sights. we found that a dimmer, single front and single rear, without the big white insert that a lot of companies use was best, especially in conjunction with the RMR as it reduces light splash, visual clutter, target indication of the user, and flare with NODs. That's why the SI sights are designed the way they are.

    The bright, outlined night sights were a (bad) stark contrast to the dim SI sights through the NODs. That was an immediately obvious take-away.

    And as I recall, the dual illum model looked great through them.

    One of the reasons (among others) that I switched to Heinie Straight 8s on my VP9, from XS Express Sights—I liked the ease of picking up the front sight (the ring helped), but eventually I figured out that my shooting was inconsistent because the sights kinda suck for anything but close range, where (shocker to anyone who reads on here regularly) one doesn't need sights.

    Predictably, switching made a lot of things much smoother.

    I know when taking Greg's CQB class, once my eyes adjusted to darkness and/or nods, I lit up like a Christmas tree with various night sights I had on me. SO Glock PDW, primary, secondary, all with various SI NS tend to do that.
