At the European Handgun Championships (EHC2019) in Serbia a few months ago Shield Sights (U.K.) stole the show with some clever marketing.
The shooting team from the United Kingdom had Shield-sponsored Jerseys in a strange Hawaii pattern with colorful Shield sights hidden among the flowers, which was accompanied by large posters around the shooting bays.
As the owner of several Shield Sights (I use them for Shotgun and Handgun) the addition of a glass lens is welcome. Not that I have a problem with mine, but I prefer glass over plastic when it comes to lenses.
In shotguns, I like the “full star” pattern red “dot”, which tells me where my pellets will hit (at a certain distance) with a certain choke. In handgun, I appreciate how low the optic sits over the barrel.
The possibility to chose the color of your sight is another cool feature and follows the trend to allow the buyer (shooter) to customize his or her appearance. Who wouldn’t like to have a sight in British Racing Green? Personally, I’d love the blue color on my competition gun.
