    Thinking about the XS 24/7 system on my XDs...do I go big or standard front sight?

    Go for the larger front dot to help with quick target acquisition

    Those look nice, what sights are those, and how much will they set you back?

    Having a few guns with the XS big dots I no longer use them. Great for my old eyes but they often got hung up on holsters. The test you gun must pass and one often overlooked, is how well you can quickly draw the gun under pressure without having to think about angling it a certain way to clear the sight or anything else that may snag.

    With finely molded to fit holsters the XS sights do not work very well. The same goes for holsters that do not have a sight grove designed into them.

    Love xs big dots on my defense guns. I have found leather holsters the front sight can hang up but for kydex holsters its no problem.

    I have Big Dots on my XDs and Shield 9mm. Great for old man eyes! Would not trade them for any other sights.
