Now go to a more practical timed run and gun application the Red Dot wins because its accurate enough but its also very quick and somewhat forgiving at 50 yards and under.

I use my red dot for 50 yrds and under and in low light shooting. Other than that I use my iron sights for distance and percision shots.
