It’s October, and you know what that means: Time to save the ta-tas!
If there is anything more frightening than seeing a red laser dot appear on your chest, it would probably be hearing that it’s breast cancer holding the gun…but maybe it’s breast cancer that should be terrified. That’s because this month XS Sights is offering an exclusive Pink version of its DXT2 Big Dot Tritium Night Sight as part of their “Aim for Hope” initiative. Whether you or someone you love has struggled with breast cancer, or whether you simply approve of saving the ta-tas, now’s a great time to take aim at cancer. XS Sights is committed through this campaign to donating a minimum of $3,000 to the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) and the programs they provide.
This limited-edition pink color is more than a statement of support. The pink color actually offers a very nice high-contrast sight picture when shooting in bright light conditions and maintains its visibility well in decreasing light levels. In low light, the Pink Big Dot glows white to provide contrast against the green tritium. The photoluminescent properties absorb all ambient light, even from the tritium, intensifying the charge of the glow properties of the dot. This combination meansthe front sight will glow brighter than the rear, to increase focus towards the front sight and the threat.
Another advantage of the XS Big Dot design is the dot-the “i” sight picture, with a tritium dot in the front sight and a tritium bar in the rear. This helps prevent confusing the front and rear sight in high-stress situations. In most gunfights, the victim and attacker are both moving, and the wide field of view offered by the shallow V rear of the Big Dot increases the visibility of the front sight and the threat downrange.
“As a majority women-owned business, we are blessed to have the opportunity to support NBCF in helping women facing the cancer fight. Our family has first-hand experience with the impact of the cancer journey…and most importantly the benefit of a supportive network and the hope it provides. We are grateful to have this opportunity to support NBCF in providing resources during this life-changing experience as so many have done for our loved ones,” said Kellie Brunn, Co-Owner of XS Sights.
XS also wants to help bring awareness to women about the importance of carrying a firearm for self-defense. Michelle Waldran, a Team Walther Shooter, handgun instructor, and XS Sights Ambassador, said, “Starting your journey as a female gun owner or just making the decision to carry a gun for self-defense can be overwhelming and scary. The key to safe gun ownership is knowledge. Prepare yourself by acquiring safe practices, elevated situational awareness, and training. It’s a lifestyle dedication.”
