That's what I used in Afghanistan. These other guys all wanted the high-speed, low-drag, chicks-dig-it crap hung all over their M4s. No thank you!

Cheers,

Are they still using open iron sights? Always was and still are my favorite type of shooting. Drop the rifle on the optics or fall on it and they are useless, iron sights are just about indestructible.
Just got a letter. Her base for basic training is requiring all the recruits to qualify with both iron sights and a red dot. She already did iron sights and was going to do the red dot qualification today. She said she had already zeroed with the red dot and was really banging the shots. Said she "absolutely loved" the red dot.

I just started using a red dot and it is ok, great for fast acquisition but it covers a lot of the target for precision as far as I am concerned. I think they are good for center of mass shots but if you are shooting competition you need more sight picture.

I'm thinking about getting a PEQ2 designator for me, and some nods for my cat. :lol:
