Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Thumbs up Anyone use a Reflex sight and have a suggestion as to what to buy. Thanks in advance.

Geez I never even looked through one but see a lot of using them so they must be good I guess?
Anyone have one they like I am looking to purchase and have no 0 idea on which to get.
Thanks for any help.

I've barely been getting into red dots for my Sport Utility Rifles. For me, the jury is still out, but I do seem to get on target faster. You just have to make sure to not chase the dot, instead of keeping it on target. So far, my red dots are made by Vortex and my first one on a Ruger MkII 22/45 is an older Tasco version, made in Japan.

Maybe this video can be of help. When Jerry Miculek speaks, I listen.

Those two are a trip together. Probably some of the best instruction you'll ever get are from them, also.

I have 7-8 firearms with reflex/red dot sights on them. I like them.

Below are three of them.

I really like my Holosun HS510C. It has a solar panel to extend battery life and auto-brightness, with a 2 MOA dot and 65 MOA circle that you can choose both or one or the other. Battery life is up to 50,000 hours and the dot is nice and clean.

Good tips thank you guys.

Yes Stoned_Oli that was one I was checking out. Never tried a Reflex but they appear to give you a wide field of view letting you see things off to the sides while still maintaining target acquisition.
Think I will grab one and see how she goes.

The Vortex Crossfire II I recently put on the Ruger PC carbine says it has a battery life of 50k hours, too. So, I pulled out the calculator and did the math - it is right around 5 years, if you forget to shut it off.

I haven't replaced the batteries in my old Tasco, since I got it, and that's been well over 10 years ago. I pulled it out the other day and turned it on, and was surprised it was still strong.

That is something that we never know...

Of course if you involve yourself in risky

behaviors like partying with your neighbors

or dancing with that bear...there could be

adverse results
