What are you using?

I am leaning towards the adjustable Novac Hi-Vis.

Thanks for the help, Karl

I'm looking to do some IDPA if I can, and I'm going to approach it with the mindset that I'm going to use my carry/home defense pistol and holster even though I could "play the game" with something faster/easier to shoot.

So in my mind whatever sights you have on or in mind for your carry or defensive gun are what you should use for IDPA.

Anything you're comfortable with. There's no "best" answer.

I use Dawson fiber optics for all my competition guns. I find that for outdoor matches, the fiber optic really helps pick up the sight much faster. For indoor meets, it's not as big a deal. I tend to prefer fixed rears as they tend to be more "foolproof" and often more snag-free.
