  5. Really depends on what you are doing with the gun and if you have other guns you want it to be consistent with and have set up the same way. If it is a recreation or gun games pistol then don't worry about it. When the dot fails, and it will eventually, due to breakage, battery, or user error, then no big issue. If it is a defensive gun then things start to get more complicated. If all you plan to do is protect you and yours, then generally speaking distances will be very close and the use of the dot or irons may not even occur. For most it will be straight up index shooting. I don't advocate that but it is just a reality. In that case it really does not matter. But for someone who may take the fight to an evil doer, courageous citizen or police, then engagement distances may be longer. The dot is very beneficial as distance increases but when the dot fails, and once again at some point it will, due to breakage, battery, or user error, no type of alternative sighting method is going to be as good as properly co-witnessed irons in the optics window. So for the courageous citizen or police, co-witnessed irons are not an option, they are necessity. As to what type of irons, that is very much personal preference. In my early dot days I did not want anything that distracted me form the dot. I was afraid I would mistake a bright front sight with the dot. That was ignorance and inexperience on my part. I actual prefer irons that are clearly visible in the event of dot failure, which will occur eventually. The only concern is the use of tritium sights if you are using night vision with the dot. In that case tritium can be an issue. Not as much so with dual tube night vision but this does not apply to most. As far as irons filling the window too much, this again is a personal preference thing. I like my irons lower to give a more open window. Same reason I prefer lower 1/3 on rifle optics. That being said, if you are keeping both eyes open and are truly target focused, as you should be to fully exploit the benefits of the dot, then absolute or lower 1/3 is not that much of an issue. This is how I define dot failure, which will happen: Dot breakage (external or internal), Battery failure (bad battery or was not change at appropriate intervals), user error (dot not set to the appropriate intensity for the environment so not visible, through poor manipulation dot has been turned down and is not visible, dot was not on)
  6. I should. I am pretty sure I still have it.
  7. How many you need per gun depends on how much you shoot and the manner/type of shooting and what you see the future availability of mags being. If you talk about shooting more than you do it you don't need many mags. You will never wear them out and the chance of damage is low if you take empty mags out to put on a bench/table and then reload. If, however, you are putting a high round count down range and dropping mags on the ground (dirt, mud, concrete, and varied surfaces) during mag changes you will eventually wear mag components out or damage them and will need to replace them. To many people treat magazines like a pet and can not bring themselves to put them down. I see this most with military guys who want to continue to run mags they deployed with. There is nothing wrong with that if they work but once they start compromising reliability they have to go. Some guys have a hard time with that. If you see future availability as an issue buy more than you think you need. Mags are cheap. Buy plenty and replace as needed.
  8. The ranges were shown in the video and they are nice. One large one and I can't remember if it was 2 or 3 smaller ones suited for private instruction. The design allows for some dynamic use.
  9. Fort Knox Defender 6031 Gun Safe. Safe has some wear and tear to the finish but is fully functional. Comes with interior pictured along with several shelves for converting one side to shelves. Door system will support over 10 handguns or other items. Fire rated for 50 minutes at 1450 degrees. Available for pick-up in west Nashville. $1200
  10. I ordered the Jagerworks B.R.O.S. a couple months ago before it was actually available. I finally received it a couple weeks ago and I like it. It truly allows you to ruggedize the SRO.
  11. You will most likely need a cantilever mount that allows you to keep the mount on the upper receiver while pushing the scope far enough forward for proper eye relief. I can't advise exactly what length though. Look at the offerings form Large, ADM, Bobro, and Midwest Industries. You will most likely not be able to use standard rings and properly mount the scope on an AR.
