Funny you posted that..I had a bushnell trs mounted, put in a padded case and took it to the range. Open up the case and the bolt used to attach to the rail had snapped right in half.

When your whiz bang dot fails, so will you.

It’s a pistol for gods sake.

I only have 3 red and 1 green. Red is better than green. I still prefer irons though.

Incorrect.

I shot and trained with irons for years before going the red dot route. My eyes are shit these days, but that ain't the dots fault.

In on one!

But yea they’re awesome. Faster and help with accuracy at further ranges.

Clearly a short lived fad….just like red dots on rifles

BUIS are things which exist. They’re not mythical or anything.

Fad or not. Get both. Or whatever you prefer.

Here to stay. Your CCW is the most likely gun to save your life. I don't want anymore pistols that can't mount a red dot.

Add about 3 seconds (too long) to clean the glass in between.

Throw on a set of TruGlo night sights, or preach front sight focus, and no one bats an eye.

Suggest a single dot on a single plane, and everyone loses their minds.

Fad, until another helpful aid comes along for the iron sight challenged.

Iron sights require no backup.


And I like less shit to break on something I trust my life with on the daily.


But that's just me.

The future is here to stay, I get fist sized groups with practice ammo at 15 yards and all pie plate hits at 25 yards.

Just took a class with the G19 and I was faster and more accurate then everyone without a red dot in the class.
