@Deleted User my work rifle recently
Message permalink: 705530752493813881
Get a decent red dot then, and later on if you want add a flip magnifier. Helps make you feel like you're not spending as much while still having a reliable opic

Holy shit, you're running an A2 grip, hahaha. Figured you'd have upgraded that.

Message permalink: 705531643942928454
1) irons require 3, but optics require 2, unless you don't have a specific target you're shooting at. And focal planes are not the only or even primary determining factor for speed 2) true of red dots, not optics in general. Even 1x prisms cause some inattentive people to get lost in the tube. Anything over 1x is absolutely more likely to compromise awareness of surroundings than irons. 3)size of the aiming point is not the only factor in precision. If you're using the whole front sight post to hit a man sized target at 500m, someone did you dirty in training. 4)fair-ish. Irons are still very usable in low light, but no light, absolutely correct. 5)in theory many optics work with NV. In practice, you have to have trained and specifically set up the whole rifle and NVG to work like that, and even then most will still prefer to run a peq. And all of that only applies to irons vs red dots. Throw in LPVOs and other magnified glass and it's a whole different speed vs precision ballgame. I'm not saying irons are better. I'm saying they have a place, especially in training.

@American_AF anyone who owns a rifle needs to be able to hit out to at least 200m.

If you have a service rifle you should be able to take supported, on demand head shots out to 300.

Shooting should be the easy part tbh, that shit should be automatic until you start doing like long range movers with high wind
Message permalink: 705533210486112266
Yep, hence why I practice reflexive. Say all you want, but getting on target and getting that muscle memory is important to me.

Message permalink: 705533790688378980
Shot process is shot process. There’s no fucking “reflex fire” bullshit, the world has learned since then. Mount the gun, acquire an acceptable sight solution and maintain it while pressing the trigger. Follow though with recoil control and sight tracking.
Message permalink: 705534036554285126
Reflex fire is literally what they tell people they’re not taking the time to give real training to, sorry man.

Message permalink: 705536890555727992
Oh, yeah @Sparrow I will concede your point about the total sight post MOA not mattering. But RDS only use 1 focal plane if you’re doing it right
Message permalink: 705537096911421461
Yeah, I used to lolipop my red dots. Now I don't give a shit. I only use the dot, good enough.
Message permalink: 705537388415549461
Now let's talk budget optics... Because I'm very curious on this. I have a mix of decent and shit optics. But are there any exceptions to the rule, that a say, $80 RDS can actually be good? Obviously, it might not be as durable as an Aimpoint or similar companies. But say the Bushnell TRS-25, for the guys who can't afford 300-600, does it work?

If any of you have personal experience with that sort of thing, of course.
