Law Enforcement research has shown that almost no one remembers seeing their sights during a real gun fight. They work fine at the range or during a qualification test but in “Condition Black” extreme stress and rapid fire, ordinary sights “disappear”.
For decades, law enforcement research, like that done by 36 year police veteran Dave Spaulding, has shown that in actual gun fights, no one actually remembered seeing or using their ordinary notch and post sights. Police researchers like optometrist Dr. Edward Godnig (Vision and Shooting, Police Policy Studies Council, 2004) explained that during the life or death stress of actual shoot outs, surges of adrenaline actually change the shape of the eye’s lens and make it impossible to focus on small, close details…like ordinary gun sights. He explained in his article, “Vision and Shooting” that for gun sights to actually work they must be so bright and clear that they “interrupt the field of vision” and essentially force the eyes to see them and process the visual information. That’s exactly what Speed Sight users report when they were forced to use their Speed Sights equipped weapons in actual shooting incidents.
Question: “Did you remember seeing your Speed Sights during the incident?”
Answer: “Yes, the sights were awesome! They are right in your face, right where you need them, you can’t help but see them.”
Special Forces Group Testimonials
In 2015, a Special Forces group that was deploying to an active war zone asked if it was possible to equip their whole team with Speed Sights. One of their group commented, “I’ve tried all the other sights. These are the best.” Thirteen sets of Speed Sights were sent. When they inquired about payment, we replied, “You have already paid”. In appreciation, the team later sent a plaque that included an American flag that had flown over their base in the war zone.
Dytac Defense, a training group founded and staffed by U.S Special Forces members, use the Speed Sights on their duty weapons. Here are some of their comments. (They did not want their names published and did not include them)
“I have used speed sights for several years. They are the best pistol sights I have ever used and would recommend them to anybody in the military/law enforcement/security industry. The contrast in the front and rear sights allow for quick sight acquisition. They have dramatically improved speed and accuracy of all the operators I have trained and worked with. They have held up to several combat deployments in the middle east. Training and operating with any other sights leaves the operator at a disadvantage.”

“I prefer these sights far above any others. They are not large and obscure the target like some I have seen. Because of the design I have a consistent sight picture and am more accurate on both close and far shots. I have improved my time and accuracy from the draw. I would use it operationally and for home defense.”

“They really stand out during that transitional time when it’s too dark to see your sights clearly but it’s too light to really see the tritium, or when going suddenly from a bright environment into a much darker one when the eyes must adjust. These sights…might very well be the future of combative handgun sights”
