    On my 45jhp pistol I've found that the three dot is much more accurate .The benefit of the ghostring is if u need to fire quickly than you basically just need to see the front sight through it and you'll probably hit your target.personally i like the three dot better.

    On a pistol, I like 3 dot. On a rifle I prefer ghost ring.

    I have an old 7mm mauser with the flip up sights its so accurate i can't find it in my heart to change it its my deer rifle so id like a scope
     
  4. I like the three dot for pistols also. I only have one pistol with ghost ring sights and that is because I have been too lazy to change them, it is a range only pistol.

    But to be honest I don't use the sights when I'm doing self defense drills with my pistols. What I mean is at ranges of 2-5 yards the sights aren't needed to hit a man size target in the chest. One of my instructors in a hand gun class had filed off his sights on his 1911 and when we asked he joked that if he had to use it lining up the sights was a waste of time muscle memory was enough to get the firearm pointed to the right spot.

    Since I can't actually see through the ghost ring in any situation, it's got no benefit at all, to me.:p

    Me too. Actually, the three-dot sights on the Hi Points are very good. I like the color difference, makes it easy to see the front sight.
