Have any of you out there used Glow-On Phosphorescent paint on your flied sight blade? Going to try it on my 10-10 and 15-4 S$W 38 special's.

Like most luminous paints it's rather disappointing.
It only glows after being "charged" with light, like from a flashlight, then only glows with a usable light for a short time.
It may glow for several hours but most of that time it's too dim to really be useful.
If you carry the gun in a holster or leave it in a drawer light can't get to the sights to charge them so you get no glow.
Pulling the gun out and shining a light on them will charge the paint, but it also destroys your night vision and if you have a flashlight you don't need luminous sights, there are techniques for using the flashlight that work better.
In other words, if you're expecting anything at all like Tritium night sights you'll be disappointed.
