I've only used the factory sights till this time. I'm looking for a different set that gives me a better sight plane. I don't have a dominate eye so I'm not sure what would work better than another.

I was wondering what everyone else prefers? I am partial to the express sights and will get some when I can afford it.


It's pretty hard to beat the factory's Novak style sights.

I would bet you do, in fact, have a dominant eye. I've never heard of anyone that was truly, completely non-dominant. This site has several different tests to determine dominance; they all work. http://askville.amazon.com/find-eye-domina...questId=5005004



What do you mean by "better sight plane"? I'm not sure what to suggest because I'm unsure what it is you're asking about.

I've worn glasses almost my entire life. I am naturally left-handed and I shoot left-handed but I do a lot of things right-handed because as most of us know the world is basically right-handed. I was forced to do a lot of things right-handed because that's what teachers did while I was growing up. I migrated away from shooting with only one eye to both eyes open a long time ago.



I've taken most of the tests for eye dominace and it always comes out with the same results (non-dominant).



As we age our eye lenses lose their flexibility so our ability to gain quick focus on an item, near or far, is hampered. The right sights, or maybe I should say, better sights can give us a quicker acquisition on the intended target. This also comes with practice, practice, practice. Practice, not just at the range, but also in as near to real-world situations as we can get.

I agree with what you are saying. I would note that even though a lot of people prefer to have both front and rear tritium sights I find that just having the front works best for my eyes. I wear glasses as well and left handed. I have found that I am right eye dominant, yet it does not work well with being left handed. so, my optometrist has helped me with making my glass prescription work so that I am left eye dominant. It has worked well for me and helps me alot. Thanks for the input.

Currently have XS Big Dots on my 9c, about to switch to Warrent Tacticals.... possibly.

Not a huge fan of Meps or Trijicons.

Since my M&P 9FS is only for competition, I went with the Warren Tact Sevigny competition sights. Wide rear notch with narrow fiber optic front.

It really depends on what the gun is used for, I think. The sights I use for USPSA/IDPA are all black, serrated with a narrow front blade (Bowie Tactical Concepts). I haven't selected those for the carry gun, though, where I've kept the factory sights.
