I thought I would post pictures of my LCP with the NiteSiter kit that has a large dot and a strip. I used a razor blade to notch the strip to follow the contour of the rear site.

NiteSiters is a misnomer for this product I think.......In order for them to be true night sites, you have to be awakened by the BG, scramble for your flashlight to activate these sites and by then, you may be a goner! Okay to aid in sighting in the daytime I guess but otherwise, I will stick to Meprolights on my GLOCK for true nighttime protection............Again, different strokes for different folks though and to each his own!!

Some further information on this issue.

Nitesiters are super photo luminescent, and not self luminescent, like Tritium. That means they need exposure to light before using them. The good news is, 10 minutes of sunlight, 20 minutes of close lamp light, or 5 minutes of Ultraviolet light is all it takes to provide many hours of luminosity. Charge Nitesiters before going out for the night, and they’ll stay charged until morning.. If you have a bedside firearm for home defense, we recommend that you keep a UV penlight or bright LED flashlight with your firearm so you can quickly charge it if necessary.[/size]

I understand what you are saying and to some degree you are correct, however, I highly doubt your HD gun will be the LCP.

I ordered some of the nitesighter dots to add to the little Ruger. I see where some have concern over their use in pitch black when awakened at night by the BG. We really don't have time to spend charging them up but I do think they wll help overall in getting a faster sight picture under all lighting conditions, except pitch black. I already have the CT lasergrips which are awesome on this pistol. The dots will only help even more I think.

Ditto!

Between the laser and a little extra glow to help pick up the regular sights if it comes to that, it's a pretty good set up IMO.

And I really like the idea of outlining the rear sight as well as having a big dot up front.

By the way, I have a trijicon front sight on my 340 and it stands out fairly well in the dark. But it's only on the front of the gun. It would get me in the "ball park" of center mass late at night. But it would help to have a little something on the rear of the gun other than a simple cut out to bracket the trijicon front sight.

Lots of options out there, including the other one mentioned. But most cost more money than these and don't leave a lot of money in the pocket to experiment with different ideas.

I'm probably going with the NiteSiters with the LCP and I can mess with the 340 rear sights with the same stuff.

Thanks for the pictures - awesome.

Brand new to the LCP and this site. Any long term reports on these stickers? How do they hold up after a few months of unholstering and reholstering?

Herky, first off welcome to the forum. After many "solvent baths" my nitesiters are holding up fine. I do recommend you affix with a drop of superglue as explained.

thanks for the reply. My first trip to the range shooting at a dimly lit black target proved interesting with zero contrast. I have the CT coming, and I know this is not a plinker, but I would like to be able to make a well placed shot if I need to. I'll have to pick up some of these. Thanks again.

Which set are ya'll getting? The dots or the strip and dot? My dad was wanting to get some too, he said he didn't care which ones. I want the strip and dot, but what other guns could you use them for. Does any body have a picture with just the dots?
