Not just bowling pins. If you aren't shooting in very low light or against black targets I can't recommend sight black enough.

Since I'm an ole timer I remember(but didn't use) carbide lamps. They're the best as far as sight picture is concerned. Sights practically glow after using carbide. However carbide is the messiest stuff around and doesn't really like all the handling needed in practical shooting. There used to be two brands of the spray on sight black and I liked one of the over the other but ole timer's has made me forget which one I liked the best.

I have a Glock 34 with an RMR06 series 2 on it.

I'm about 2,200 rounds into learning how to run a red dot sight on a handgun.

Last weekend I shot an IDPA classifier match with that gun. Wasn't quite as accurate as usual and I could've gone faster on a few strings of fire, but over all I was happy with how it went.

About halfway through the match I realized that I was aiming center-of-mass on the targets and not high in the chest where the A zone is. I'm not sure why that was. I had lots of hits about 6 o'clock low in the center zone with a few rounds over the line.

This was not something I was doing in practice or in the four USPSA matches I have shot with this combination.
You can only learn from experience if you pay attention!
