On my GP100, I have rifle sights, "v" notch rear and a brass bead for the front sight, a lot easier for me to see. After my cataract surgery, my long distance vision is great, but up close not so much, I get on well with the set up on my GP100, I have the same set up on my Redhawk .45Colt.

on my 629 44 mag I snagged some of my wifeys really bright
yellow nail polish and put a dab on the front sight, I left
the back sight black and it made all the difference in the
world... especially in those poorly lit indoor ranges ;)

I found some orange fluorescent paint and applied it to the front sight of all of my handguns that did not have easily replaceable sights. This stuff is really visible in low light, in the evening just before dark when there is more UV than visible light.

There are some luminescent paints, that you can "charge" with a flashlight, kind of a "poor mans" night sight. Some of those paints have a presistance of several hours.
