Should Night Sights Be Standard On Concealed Carry Firearms?


Our friend Robert Farago over at TTAG recently posted on the topic of night sights and concealed carry pistols and it got me thinking; Why don’t all concealed carry pistols have a stock night sight option right from the manufacturer?

For example, I have a Glock 26 that I routinely carry, which came from Glock with night sights. I love them. I really love them. But while Glock has this option, many manufacturers don’t, and the user needs to rely on aftermarket sights to get the job done if they want them to glow in the darkness.

Aftermarket night sights are often very expensive, and that turns off the option for a lot of people.

Stock aside, what’s your take on the luxury of night sights for a firearm that you carry? Surly you are sometimes out and about when the sun goes down, and it sure would be nice to have the added benefit of having a clear picture if you ever have to bring your firearm up to eye level.
