XS Sights SR9

I'm looking into these sights for my SR9. I'm on the fence as to whether to go with the Big Dot or the standard.

I would like to be pretty accurate for a ways out, I understand that I can't be as accurate as I can with a 3 dot system. I'm concerned about windage and elevation and will take to a gun smith.

The ammo I'm loading (as I've read this makes a difference) is the Federal Premium 147gr HST.

I'm open to alternatives that are Tritium if anyone knows of any better ones out there.

Ive got tru glo TFO sights on my glock 19 and I absolutely love them. They are the best all around sight i have found to this date. They are fiber-optic sights, but at night the tritium lights the fibers. I am not sure if they make these for the SR9s, but they would be worth looking in to.

I like TFO's. Had them on my G-21. But from what I see on their site they do not make them yet for the Ruger SR's. I have a SR40 and I would love a set but it looks like I will have to go with the XS's. I will go with the big dot. Dave

I just ordered XS Sights with the big dot for my Shield 9. once I get them installed I'll be sure to post videos. Until then, the reason I chose them is after watching the reviews and thinking about what I'm asking the gun to do for me. My primary need is fast aquisition of the target an accuracy up to 10 or 15 yards at the most.

While it makes sense, I may end up hating them and take them off. But I may love them. I'll run some timed trials with the factory sights and the XS sights. Just gotta wait for them to arrive so I can install them.

How did they work for you?
Thanks in advance.
