Speed Sights are the ultimate pistol “Flash Sight picture” and end the debate between
“point shooting” or “aimed fire” for hand guns.
There has been endless debate about whether “point shooting” or “aimed fire”
is the best method for extreme rapid fire with a pistol during actual shoot outs.
“Point shooting” advocates say that during real gun fights, there is no time to
properly acquire a correct sight picture and that the defensive shooter should
learn to draw and fire accurately without slowing down enough to properly align

“Flash sight picture” for handguns.

Speed Sights ends the debate by providing the largest, sharpest, brightest, high contrast, intuitive
sight picture available for hand guns.
Speed Sights are so bright, sharp and visible that a “Flash Sight Picture” with Speed Sights is ALL

In other words, a “flash sight picture” with Speed Sights can be just as accurate or more accurate, as a more slow, deliberate aim with ordinary conventional sights.
The combat effectiveness of a Speed Sights “flash sight picture” has been proven by reports from Speed Sights users who were in actual gun fights.
Several of these actual incident reports can be read at this link, for our “Combat Reports” section:
So the debate is over. Speed Sights are the ultimate sight picture for both slowly aimed or rapid fire “flash” sight pictures.
