They look great! Do they interfere with any of your holsters?

Ohhhh... I love ghost ring sights! Very cool and I'm looking for some night sights for my Glock. Guess I'll give them a try.

I've never used anything like that. Please explain the benefit of the sight.

That's pretty neat!

I plan on getting Trijicon HDs when they're available for mine.

they advertise they are easier to acquire sight picture and also the eye has a natural tendency to center items in view

im going to shoot it today but i have already been dry firing and getting the sight picture is almost instant no looking for proper alignment

I've seen them on rifles before. Never thought about them on pistoles. I see what your saying about how they would draw your eye into the sight. I've seen where people with arthritis have put knobs on the slide to hook a finger on sincere they can't grasp. This may help two things at the same time

the youtube vid i first saw them on showed you can charge your firearm by friction between the sight and blue jeans you wear

It looks nice, I'm not sure I could get used to them.

I'm sure acquisition would be quicker, but you've got a lot going on in the sight picture. Accuracy would likely suffer also as distance increases. Ghost ring sights work best when the ring is close to your eye, way out there on a pistol I'm not sure if the advantage would be as high.

I think they would work better than the 3-dot sights that came with my 1911r1...once it gets to low light the 3-dot disappear. I had fiber optics on my bow years ago and you may be surprised at how dark it can be and still be able to see your sights. :bthumb:

I held Oliver's Glock and the sights are awesome. I Spent three hours searching for Ghost Rings for my Ruger Sr9c and 40 with no luck. If anyone knows where I can get them please let me know.
