So I just ran across these- I think their new? Has anyone seen them in person or used them yet?

I saw these a few days ago. In addition to having tried them, would appreciate info from anybody who could explain how they work. The box makes the tracers look like little buttons--do they go under the bullet? If so, are they cut to fit? Guess I'm a sucker for these types of novelties, although my carry mags contain 3 rounds of Elite Ammunition Trident T6, 1 round of IlluminaTOR, 3 rounds of Elite Ammunition Trident T6, etc. Primarily in case of a nighttime situation...

Wow the 5.7 at night? Have you seen the fireball from the end of one at night? Its blinding like shooting a 357 or 10mm.

I've done a LOT of night shooting with systems much bigger than a Five Seven, the muzzle flash is nowhere near as big an issue as people make it out to be, with regards to blinding yourself at night.

Some people say they get blinded by it. I shot the model C 9mm glock for a night qualification course and shoot the FsN at night matches.

It must be different for different people.
Never attribute to malice that which can be explained by stupidity.
The shooter will always matter more than the gear ever will.
Stop relying on others to do the work for you.
Shoot more, worry less.
