I bought an AR with the intention of using a carry handle and a pinned A2 front sight.
I did this for the reasons FAAWRENCHBNDR stated above. Namely:
Iron sights do not need batteries.
Iron sights rarely, if ever, break or fail.
Iron sights are always there, not in a pack.
Then I decided to put my ACOG on it instead. Why?
ACOG's do not need batteries.
ACOG's rarely, if ever, break or fail.
ACOG's are always there, not in a pack. (assuming you keep them on the rifle.)
And ACOG's are far more versatile than iron sights. (Especially at distance with these tired, old, astigmatic eyes.)
Matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration; we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively. There is no such thing as death. Life is a dream, and we're the imagination of ourselves. And now...the weather! ---- Bill Hicks
