    Glow sights / paint

    Not even sure if this is what you call them, what have people used to improve shooting in low light/dark shadows with open sights

    This is for my 30-30, bail gun, bush gun

    Cheers

    Oh right. Nah makes sense when I re-read it. Try either bright paint like fluro yellow.or yeah the glow paint. I dont think white or red are that great but could be alright. I know he red front sight on the slug gun is crap. The truglo ones. But the rear sight is a bright green and stans out might be ok as well.

    the true glow ones if they are similar to the shotguns ones may not be suitable for bush use as they are abit week
    twink is easy, you could just tie a white handkerchief round the barrels like the vietcongs did for night ambushes

    Shops that sell plastic model aircraft etc usually sell dayglow type enamel paints , so do shops that sell fly tying equipment , also dayglow nail polish is available , but some only works in uv light so check it out first
    Get as close as you can then six feet closer
