I have a glock 23c and was thinking about adding night sites. What do you guys think. This will be a carry weapon and home defense. I just keep thinking that because of the porting and the probability that most bad things happen after dark that any night vision I had will be gone after the first shot.

Thanks

Night sights are one of those MUST HAVES on all pistols, get em

I agree that night sights are important for any defensive pistol. Have you tried your pistol in low light shooting to see the effect of the porting? This should answer you question.

Do it! It's well worth the money.
In my opinion Heinie makes the best night sites.

I have a 21C and I have fired it in low-light and complete darkness...if your looking for your target through the front site the flame approx 8ninches dosent night blind you its too quick....but if your looking right at the ports you get a second white over...that is not good...just train to look past them and youll be fine....

I'll repeat that, IMHO (of course!), night sights are a must. I generally go with Meprolight tritiums green sights, but just out of habit, and I've been quite happy with them. No complaints and no regrets.

Look at it like this,it's dark an average of around 12Hr per day. Go with the glow!!!

Get the night sights, but get them on a 23. GET RID of the compensated piece. Compensators have NO PLACE on a defensive pistol. Too many problems associated with flash (as you have mentioned), and getting blasted with gasses and powder when shooting from behind certain types of cover or disadvantaged positions.

The 23 is a kitten to shoot anyway. Even my wife shoots it great, and she's a wimp! Why do you need a compensator?
