Okay, If you are looking at the dots you are not looking at the front sight and your shots will go high!
This is because in a "proper" sight picture you should have your front sight in sharp focus with the top
of the sight where you want your bullets to hit the target.
The dots are below
the top of the front sigh so if you place the front sight dot
on the target you are aiming high
For defence shooting the dots will be "minute of offender" and not make any real difference, but for target shooting they are awful. A very good competition shooter I met last year told me he "uses the dots for rapid sight engagement then looks at the front sight only
. It saves a fraction of a second per target in competition".
I do not like dots on my sights. The only gun I open with them I have blacked out the dots.
As for my duty pistol, I just ignore the bloody things.
