TruGlo TFX Glock Night Sights

A common complaint about night sights is they are less-than-useful during daylight hours (or in brightly lit rooms). Low-light conditions allow tritium sights to shine (pun intended), but those green glowing sights don't show up in bright light like they do in the dark.

TruGlo's TFX Night Sights address this concern by housing the tritium capsule inside a fiber-optic pipe, then wrapping everything up in a machined housing. The front sight contains what TruGlo deems a "Focus Lock" dot: a white ring encircles the tritium-filled fiber optic post to better draw the eye to the front sight.

Fully protected TFO (Tritium/Fiber Optic) technology is encapsulated in a rugged housing the company claims is impervious to oils, chemicals, cleaning solvents and ultra-sonic cleaning processes. The sights use Swiss tritium for maximum brightness, and no outside power is required. The housing ensures neither the fiber optic nor the tritium is observed by the intended target.

MSRP: $172. Available for a wide variety of handguns, including high and low configurations.

What is the Greatest Defensive Skill?

You can say what you want to about your favorite defensive school or those advanced-fighting techniques you learned, but the greatest defensive skill that a person can develop is simply awareness. I will freely admit that developing effective awareness is anything but simple, but being able to spot trouble before it is close enough to get in your face will certainly save you from a lot of trouble and possibly even some pain and grief.
