Ok just wondering with all the fiber optics out there what do you prefer for color on your firearms and how come ?
Let me know what you think

I like green. I find it easier to see in lower light than the red.

I heard that red supse to be more attracting to your eyes, that's one of the reasons why stop lights are red ,
Has anyone else ever hear this ?

I had fiber optics on my G19. I liked having the red front and the green rear. It was a quick to acquire the sights for me with that setup. Much easier then green front and rear.

Carry gun, trid night sights.
For most handgun competitions; red with the sides of the tube blackened with a sharpie. I find that shooting in bright sunlight with either a red or green FO washes out the sharp outline of my front sight reducing my accuracy.
For 3-gun; plain black as the shots are tighter (4" plates out to 25 yards is not uncommon) and precision is needed. I need all the precision/front sight sharpness I can get.
On a shotgun for an action shotgun match; a big blazing red FO.
