The Trijicons are nice, but the HDs are a mixed bag. I have heard instructors mention that the HD sights are good for rapid target acquisition, but cause the shooters to shoot high at intermediate and longer ranges. Apparently, the bright dot is forcing people to use the dot as the aiming point instead of the top of the front sight blade. Food for thought.
Yea, at that point I might just drop it off at a gun smith so it can be perfect...especially for an EDC gun.

Good info on the HDs, I'll do some searching before I pull the trigger.
