Here’s to a New Year! Happy Shooting!
“Black Friday” is the traditional kick off of the Christmas buying season. USA Today reported a unusual spike in sales of… handguns.. among the top-selling items on November 25th. According to the FBI 129,166 background checks of prospective buyers were processed on Black Friday, setting a single day record!
Larry Keane, VP of the National Shooting Sports Foundation, reports ” Many gun dealers that enroll firearm novices in safety and training course report that their courses are often full, or wait listed, another indication of growth in the number of new gun owners”. The increase in retail sales of handgun over the past year is an indication of the subtle shift of acceptance of gun ownership for personal and home protection.
After spending three days shooting with the girls at Babes with Bullets Camp, I would really like to have Santa leave me my very own SW M&P 9mm – can I have the special pink grips too, please Santa? P.S. I prefer red HiViz sights on the rear and green HiViz on the front. Thanks Santa! Love, Betsy

Front and Rear Handgun Sights
Many people ask “Why do I need a fiber optic sight?” or “What are the advantages over the factory sights?” At HIVIZ we use an injection molded resin to form our LitePipes. They are in the fiber optic family, but not an extruded fiber optic rod like some other manufacturers use. Ours are custom molded to fit perfectly and tightly to each individual sight design. The LitePipe collects light along the rod and transmits it to the viewing end of the sight.
To me, shooting handguns, it was very apparent why they are a huge improvement over the factory blades. I just either couldn’t make out the sight alignment with front and rears being all black or depending upon my target, couldn’t see the sights against the target at all!
Well, let’s face it, when you hit what you’re aiming at and experience that success, you’re going to have fun and enjoy it more. You are more likely to continue in the sport. I know this is especially true for beginning shooters.
Shotguns are a little different versus the handgun sight concept. With handguns you are focusing on your front sight, with shotguns you are focusing on the target itself. That fiber optic front sight is like the white line on the side of the road. You aren’t staring at that either; it’s in your peripheral vision to help you judge your alignment on the road. Same goes for our shotgun sights. It’s in your peripheral vision allowing you to acquire that proper muzzle/target relationship while in motion.
With shotgun, there are three common techniques for achieving lead on a moving target. Sustained lead, pull-away, and swing or pull through. Which ever one you choose is a matter of personal choice. Some target presentations may be more effectively shot with a different technique than another. regardless of the method you choose, follow-through is one of the most critical elements of a successful shot. And while having a HIVIZ fiber optic sight may not be necessary for your shooting, I truly believe it is an advantage when picking up your target and lead management!
