I feel the same. I am a master with all my rifle red dots but can't swing the pistol red dot thing, believe me I've tried. It's all good I'm right at home on my handguns with iron sights.
Yes but in five-ish years of using a dot on my primary, I haven’t needed to use the irons. So I want what works best for my primary method of sighting.Wouldn't you have the same preference if you had to use the iron sights on your dot gun?
And you can still shoot the same way with a red dot mounted on top of your slide.If you train enough you can eventually get to the place that you can just point and shoot. It took me a while and a whole bunch of ammo but I eventually got there. Both eyes open too by the way. Once you get it down it's amazing how fast you can get rounds on target. But you really have to spend the time at it. Heck, I've had pistols that I didn't even need sights.
I've often thought about a 1911 Commander naked slide, blacked out with no sights. The voids filled in and dehorned all over and with a DLC coating.
Correct, I can shoot with both eyes open with a red dot and that's why I have one on one of my 300BO pistols. I was doing that with my M&P but just slower.And you can still shoot the same way with a red dot mounted on top of your slide.
But some people want to complain about how slow they are with the dot or how shaky they are. The dot doesn’t change how you shoot. It just shows you exactly where the bullet is going to hit when the shot goes off though. The dot is not some mythical or magical thing. It just shows what the gun is doing way better then any one can perceive with iron sights. Do you need that level of accuracy or re assurance with every shot? Probably not. But it’s nice to have when you need it.
They’re fully usable, guy. I shot this gun during a match at an active duty SF Group, ran by their SFAUC committee, over the summer. But thank you for allowing me to operate.Except the ability to use them. Go ahead and operate, though.
Almost sounds like a typical bureaucratic budget move, as in - if they don't spend the money, they won't get it budgeted next year. Been through that scenario way too many times.Just FYI, FBI just announced they are moving to Red Dots for all agents. They are collecting and destroying all the Glock 19M’s and buying a version of the 19MOS. The new pistol will incorporate some of the features the FBI required on the 19M (the marksmanship barrel, ambidextrous slide stop, etc), not sure if it will be a whole new model number or just a new version of the 19M. I know the FBI approved two particular red dot models, but sorry can’t remember which ones…
