I had been feeling a bit better after throwing my back out so I went shooting today. I had put a nice red dot sight on one of my ARs and was shooting it at the 100 yard range. I believe that red dots greatly reduce the capabilities of a good rifle as I was having problems getting a good point of aim on the target. I think RDSs have thier places on shotguns and short range (about 50 yards) on pistols. I know they are popular but comparing that RDS to my Buris Mtac 1-4 was no comparison. Up close and quick a RDS is hard to beat but greatly limits the rifles distances. What are others thoughts on this - maybe my expectations are wrong.
