Some further information on this issue.picketeer said: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![/img]
http://www.nitesiters.com/ said: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.picketeer said: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!!
Ditto!45longcolt said: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.
