    Last week was another pistol optic class. By now you know the deal... two days, around 1,000-1,200 rounds. We had students from three California local law enforcement agencies in attendance.

    Been a little behind in updating stuff.

    A couple weeks ago we did a 1911 certification class (includes 2011 pistols). This is also a 16hr (two day) course with the first half of the first day...

    I have two Wheeler FAT wrenches and a Vortex. I think Iíll order one of the Borka wrenches as well. I think that in most cases a Wheeler is plenty good, but with the number of optics Iím mounting I...

    In my experience it holds zero more often than not, but one must confirm it. I noticed when changing the battery on my G19 in late December that the after re-mounting the dot was slightly higher...

    This is the way.

    You can do most of the learning on a dot in dry-fire. Itís a learning curve when youíre used to iron sights, but itís doable and I think itís a better way.

    I have a 507C X2 and I really like it. Like GJM said, you need to decide what your needs are and whether an enclosed emitter is for you. For shooting in competition, or even concealed carry, Iíd...

    The SRO body is not polymer. Itís 7075 aluminum. I have an SRO sitting on my desk at work with a shattered window but with a working and visible dot that remained zeroed after three drops. The...

    The brightness in sunlight is fine. My gripe is primarily with the top three settings. I like to set the brightness to a single setting for both day and night/low light. Going from full brightness...

    The SRO is a good optic for duty, CCW, home defense, or fun. It has advantages (big clear window, top load battery) and disadvantages (lower battery life, not as durable as an RMR, higher profile,...

    This is as close as Iíve seen to my childhood flying dreams coming true. I respect the tactical applicability but I respect even more the idea that a person can fly. Too cool.

    Well... That was a tough 20 min to get through.

    I have used SROs and ACROs in Safariland ALS holsters and have guys 10-8 with them now. They didnít need ďcuttingĒ and while some gun/optic combos...

    Or Leupold... I suppose based on my experience heís right. That ďnon-duty worthyĒ SRO did better on our drops than the DeltaPoint Pro did with that steel shroud.

    Totally agree. I havenít played much with the circle, as Iíd prefer a smaller one (I really want to try the Holosun 407CO!), but I think the concept certainly has value.
