Same here, and it was very easy to change out.

Smokey Joe will become famous soon enough
First I put a coat of testors silver model paint on my sights and let it dry for 24 hrs. That is followed by a coat of the chartreuse sight paint in the small bottles from my LGS. When done the sights almost glow in low light situations and they are easy to pick up on white, black, or orange targets. I did this to my gins 2 years ago and haven't had to redo one yet.

Thanks for all the replies guys, i have not changed the color of my sights but i took it first time in the range this saturday night. I just used 38 specials the 357 hornadies jist for show , the target is actually upside down. This was my firsttime shooting a handgun ever. People at Target Masters west in Milpitas CA was really friendly.

I just used my daughters Anna and Elsa Nail polish. Went to the range again today, and my shot placement went worst , I keep flinching everytime I here a shot fired on the lane next to me.

Not bad for your first time shooting a handgun ever! Great job!

Best I can think of for flinching is to shoot more. Both in groups and by yourself. Get some cheaper ammo than the Hornady and shoot a few hundred rounds with it. Try shooting alone first and slowly add more people. I like Federal ammo or American Eagle is their cheaper line. In time, the flinching will be better. You could also try better hearing protection. Those little foam ear plugs do a good job if they are put in well. Pair that with a set of shooting muffs and you probably won't hear much. You could also look at electronic muffs which make hearing seem normal except when shots are being fired. I've never used them but I've heard good things. Good luck.

Oh, one other thought. Is it possible to just spend some time hanging out at the range? Exposure to the sound and environment could help too.

Thanks Sixty, i just use 38 specials during practice i bought the 100 round per box Winchester at Bassproshops it was $40.00. I also notice my trigger finger tiring out too quickly almost to the point of hurting, is this normal for a newbie?

Plato Dip has florescent colors now. Great thing with Plasti Dip is it is durable but can be taken off and re done.

Yea, tired trigger finger is normal. It's like any other muscle/tendon system. At first, it will feel more fatigued, but repetition will raise your trigger finger stamina (is there a phrase for this? I feel like there should be). And while you're resting your trigger finger, you can watch Jerry Miculek shoot way faster than I can even imagine and wonder if he gets trigger fatigue. https://youtu.be/WzHG-ibZaKM

I also used the white appliance paint on front ramp sights & it works very well.
Eventually changed to Williams Fire Sights...MUCH BETTER!!!!

Dry fire practice will help with flinching. Focus on each shot, squeeze and repeat when you hit the range.

As to the front sight I use base coat white nail polish, second coat orange floro paint and final coat clear top coat nail polish. Lasts a long time and the fluorescent orange gets picked up by my eyes easily. With my GP I changed out the front sight with a fiber optic sight also in orange.
