Meprolight Sights to Upgrade Your Handgun

Most likely if you’re reading this, you may be one of the millions who purchased a new handgun in the past year or so. “According to the National Shooting Sports Foundation, nearly 14 million Americans bought a firearm for the first time in the past two years — 8.4 million in 2020 and another 5.4 million in 2021.” (Mark Chestnut, Shooting Sports Retailer 10.18.22) You could also be an experienced shooter looking to increase your defensive capabilities. Ask yourself, should you upgrade your sights? After all, the handgun you purchased came with sights. A better question might be, do you want to increase the odds in your favor? Sharing insights from valid experts may help overcome your reluctance. Tiger McKee, Director, Shootrite Firearms Academy penned the following, “The majority of pistols offered today come with ‘good’ sights. However, to cut costs some factory sights are insufficient for defensive work. You can expect to install upgraded sights.“ McKee also shared, “Shooting accurately is all about sight alignment and a smooth press or stroke on the trigger. In self-defense applications, this has to be done under any and all conditions….The sights on your weapon have to be up to the task and may be one of the first modifications you need to consider.” (The Shooting Wire.com, 4/19/21)
