I scoffed at my friend for getting one, and then he traded it off....to me. Needless to say, I have adapted to it. But I still remain skilled with open sights.

My first was my friend's G19 MOS with an RMR, and extra things that are not essential but are on it: stippling, milled slide, Ghost Triggers Ultimate, Overwatch Precision Trigger/bar.

For every optic I outfit them with backup Suppressor Height Tritium sights. I prefer Tritium powered reflex sights over battery since it's always "On".

Having visual acuity changes in my "middle age" I find the fewer focal planes to be an advantage. However, there is a learning curve for a new user. The sights have to be brought up to eye level. Next, the sights don't play a factor at less than 15 yards.

I do find transitions to be faster from target to target, and there is no significant added bulk when carrying.





Anyone else? I have an FN FNP 45 that I wish had the optics plate, and I'm waiting on a mounting plate for my FN 5.7.

Never tried them. I try to keep my EDC as minimal as possible but for home or competition that would be good.

How about this in 22 mag with folding grip with laser and bayonet .
Does it have radar too?.....That bayonet looks a bit sharp for pocket carry......:-D

HA! Ditto! Way too funny!:D

I don't care for bulky carry guns. However that doesn't mean I don't carry larger framed guns, just not with stuff hanging off all over them. The odds of using such rmrs during a self defense situation will be slim to none. I prefer a smooth snag-free draw for potential self defense situations.

As for range guns, let it rain optics and what ever else floats your boat.

But each to their own.

Well I play both ends of the spectrum. I was tired of the revolver vs semiauto, capacity vs ballistic arguments. So I carry a Kimber K6S with 158 gr JHPs and a Glock 19 MOS with an RMR and red dot sights. One is for quick draw and the other is for sheer firepower.

My hunting guns are my favorite, as I get a rush from shooting them. That Smith 500 with 350 grains has a loud bark and moderate recoil, relatively speaking to my 500 gr 500 magnum load...quite a fierce round for a heavy bullet.

I agree, plus one, ditto. You don't need much help at 15-20 feet. My SP is bigger than I'd like, but nothing else floats my boat....:-D

What's an rmrs?.....:confused:....Oh, got it, Ruggedized Miniature Reflex (sights).

At that distance I just point shoot. I don't even need Sights to hit center of mass.
