View Full Version : opnions on the "new" red dot fad
It seems there are a lot of people building and pushing red dot sighted pistols using the new micro sights that have become more recently available. What are your thoughts on them and the potential for legal complications or advantages arising from their use in a deadly force encounter?
Thank you for your time,
There are some trainers who think they're the next big thing, and they certainly have potential.
On the liability side, the history is that unscrupulous opposing counsel will take advantage of long-standing political/media "assault weapons hysteria" to try to make anyone with an exotic or high-tech gun look like Rambo. Our side has been able to defeat that in court when it has been applied to laser sights, and I expect the same will happen with these. It's not something I'd personally worry about.
Make sure you keep iron sights on for backup, though. Some of us just don't entirely trust anything that's battery dependent...but that's from the tactical/practical side, not the liability side.
