What site do you like better for competition?

Pistol being a Les Baer:

Do you pick

1. Night Sites?
2. Adjustable Les Baer Sites?

Thanks,
Joe

Guess ya got me. When I saw the header I thought you were implying "what web site" for competition, not gun sights.

Oh, to answer your question, since I've only shot Bullseye, I gotta say Red Dot

This ex-Bullseye shooter still prefers BO-MAR sights above all else, even with 68 year old eyes.

Good shooting and be safe.

I would call this the most ideal sight setup for a Les Baer - if you have the TRS or Custom Carry or (insert your favorite Les Baer with fixed sight here ___________ ), then I would use a Dawson Precision .105 width front sight fiber optic - it's about as thin as they make for the Baer front sight cut.

Actually, that's a really good point. Les Baer certainly doesn't just slap those sights on - they're made to produce precision - a minimum guarantee of 3" groups out to 50 yards on a bench rest. Yikes...



edit - correction... .090 is the thinnest fiber optic front sight width that DP produces for the Les Baer.

If its a USPSA/IPSC game gun, BoMar or Heinie.

Big no to night sights. For fast daytime shooting they clutter up your sight picture.

I like the Bomar or STI rear with a .100 front fiber optic optional.

I like a Heinie rear and .010" Dawson front. The Heinie notch is deeper than others I've tried, and I prefer that.

Well if thats the case, definately a fiber optic front sight. I'm running a STI Bomar clone for a rear sight widened to .120" (and depth increased per RickB's comments) and a .090" Dawson red fiber optic up front. This combination gives nice light bars around the front sight and allows me to see the entire front sight (not just the top of it).
