Thanks Rick. I was surprised to read that a thin front site is preferred. That is actually the problem I had with my 1911, the front site was to thin. I had a real hard time finding that thin little sight. Part of the problem I had may have came from the small thin cut in the rear sight making it hard to see the front sight through. I thought a wider, taller front sight, as well as a wider rear sight may have ben the answer.
I was also surprised that dots, squares, colors etc are the worst. I would have thought that a few well placed hi vision dots would have helped. That just goes to show how much I have to learn.
