Default Just one sight?

Anyone blackout the factory rear sight and just use the front sight? I'm thinking about trying it with either a fiber optic or night sight up front. If someone else does this, how did you black out the rear sight?

May not work well in a range visit but you could always first put on some small pcs of electrical tape on the rear dots to see how your acquisition is on the front. If that seems ok then you can try nail polish, sharpee, etc for a longer term blacked out solution

Yes. My competition pistols use a plain black rear and a green fiber optic front. I think I have mild ADD and having the single green dot helps keep me focused on the front sight.

When I was young and poor I would take a sharpie and black out the rear sight dots and use some fluorescent green paint to color the front dot.
