  1. I wish I'd known that you wanted a Staccato P. I am teetering on the edge of selling mine and just focusing on the C2 that I have. You're going to love the way the dot rides on the slide, though!
  2. I wanted to come back to this comment albeit not entirely from the perspective of finding the dot reticle in the dark but just in general regarding the size of the window glass. In terms of days/months/years, I have spent a longer period of time behind a Trijicon RMR RM07 Type 2. This is the one with the 6.5MOA dot. I really do like that larger dot for handguns. That said, I have also had a gen-1 Holosun HE508T for about two years now and recently added both the new gen-2 Holosun HE508T-X2 and a 507K-X2 to my pile of optics. The 507K is their new smaller optic. It's smaller than
  3. YEP!!! The big league competitive shooters definitely do it. Shooting with a dot for a while makes you a better and iron sight shooter, especially in "social distances". I am pretty sure that greats like Brian Enos and Rob Leatham figured it out a long time ago before dot optics were much of a thing. They'd focus on the sights when they had to, but when they really needed to push the gas pedal down they were more than capable of making A-zone hits without them in order to go faster. It really wasn't until I started shooting with a red dot and learning to trust my motor skills to s
  4. I haven't found that to be the case but I've done literally thousands and thousands of draw and presentations with the dot on the various platforms that I own. Proprioception plays a huge role in being a fast and accurate shooter with any gun, but especially a handgun and double especially (is that a thing?) a handgun with a dot optic. Here's the thing about iron sights that people often fail to recognize when they make statements about them being faster to acquire than a red dot: Iron sights mask problems with presentation. Most people use them to "steer" the gun on tar
  5. I almost included the Masada in my diatribe up there but don't have any personal experience with them. I know that the polymer adapter plate for the optic weirded-out some initial reviewers but I frankly don't see the problem so long as the plate is just an adapter and the screws go INTO the metal of the slide. I think that is how the Masada works? Polymer shouldn't scare us in that application. We aren't scared that the gun's frame is polymer, after all. That Leupold is an interesting design. I really need to get behind one of them before I form an opinion, but God alm
  6. I 100% guarantee you that your slowness is due to inefficient presentation of the gun with the optic and that with some coaching you'll not only be better with the dot than you are with iron sights, but you'll be a better iron sights shooter too.
  7. I've written about red dot optics on handguns many, many times here on TGO. They are the way forward. Period. I probably have more money invested in dot optics and having slides milled for them than most folks have in handguns. I own more than a few and I have spent countless hours getting pretty good with them and good at teaching people to use them effectively. They aren't a fad and they aren't a niche anymore. They've become mainstream because they work and they are a vast improvement over iron sights. And as long as you stay with proven brands like Trijicon and Holosun, they
  8. Just an old, politically acceptable, muzzle-loading cap and ball rifle that can't even fire a shot anymore. I mostly use it as a glorified telescope now thanks to that Vortex Razor.
  9. While I completely agree with you that there are people at the top of these movements or funding them from hidden boardrooms, those are the people manipulating the situation and the average citizen. Fighting them requires different tactics. Exposing them has marginal benefit, but choking off their supply of fuel (i.e. voters) has tangible results. To do that, it is often helpful to look at what is motivating the average voter to cast their ballot one way or the other. Typically we don't have to look much farther than a stop at Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs and start by looking at the bot
  10. We do our absolute best on TGO to put the best face forward, welcome all manner of diversity in our members, preach that the 2A is for everyone, bequeath the love of responsible firearms use and ownership to the next generation and motivate folks to do their individual yet massively impactful "small part" by voting for Pro-2A legislation and legislators. For years the number of us who are willing to do what @TripleGGG described and write and call and email and petition the lawmakers to preserve the Second Amendment has been an abysmally low percentage compared to the overall tally of peop
  11. All actions taken by the government in the week before the inauguration, the quick pivot of the Biden / Harris administration from duplicitous cries for "unity" toward the narrative that the window of opportunity for the GOP to "work with us" was closing, and the continued presence of miles of barbed wire-topped fences and armed troops manning them in Washington DC has told me all I needed to know about where this was headed. Biden and Harris and the Democrats entrenched in places of power want us disarmed. Period. NOW. Conservatives are now all racist, White Supremacist, radical F

  13. The revised Adamas series of knives from Benchmade are due to launch in March and the new 275GY-1 is probably the one knife on my radar that I can genuinely say I am excited about. The new Adamas series is going to use the absolutely stellar CruWear steel for their blades which will address the rusting issue some folks had with the D2 tool steel used previously.
