Night Sights: 3-Dot or Straight-Eight 'œLollypop' Style?
February 16, 2012
Scholars of self-defense guns all agree: Your chosen pistol should have night sights. Where they differ is whether there should three dots -- to be lined up horizontally for the shot -- or two dots, which are stacked one atop the other for a figure eight, or "lollypop" appearance. Proponents of the latter claim that they are less distracting to the eye and make for finer shooting, but the 3-dot style is liked by many for it's easy-to-grasp principal -- just line 'em up on the bad guy and go to defending.
