    I actually prefer a good 1x oriented LPVO to a red dot for 0-50 (assuming passive NVG use is not necessary). I can see more through the optic in more lighting conditions than I can with a red dot,...

    While it can be satisfying, for me, it was also very enlightening on the limitations of a red dot or irons. Our local 2 gun club is at a large range that can put together complicated "natural...

    I've been running 1.93 mounts with LPVOs since shortly after Larue released the first one (I think it's been a little over a decade at this point), and none of those reasons apply to me. I get a very...

    For an optic that will primarily be shot on 1x in more upright positions, I prefer 1.93-2.04. The taller mounts allow the stock to stay in your shoulder without requiring you to tilt your head a lot...

    That's why I like the US Optics TS-12. It's light and compact, so it doesn't completely change the handling of a relatively light weight carbine.

    That's a great deal on the 3-15. I was going to suggest that in addition to the Athlon, but I don't have any experience with the 3-15 (just the 1-6 and 5-25).

    The PST gen 2 is certainly the better value. The Razor is a little bit "flatter" on 1x with better FOV and a little clearer. The Razor also has a longer track record from a durability standpoint, but...

    The Athlon Midas Tac 4-16x44 fits most of your criteria, but it isn't illuminated. If you want an illuminated scope, then there are definitely some cost/weight penalties in that magnification range.

    I'm using a SiCo Specter 2 and an EA NYX Mod 2. The video shows a TB and SiCo Sparrow (I think). We have a Sparrow and Gemtech monocore at work, so I might test with those to see if monocore makes a...

    I've found that I prefer LPVOs that prioritize 1x effectiveness like you PST II. The small objective on LPVOs is limiting if you spend a lot of time on higher magnification. The 1-6 Razor is still my...

    It depends on state law, but under federal law, a transfer of non-NFA firearms under a will is generally exempt from the interstate transfer limitations. See 18 U.S.C.A. 922(a)(3), (a)(5).

    It could be, but it depends on how the state law is structured. Federal law generally exempts from some transfer rules what ATF considers "transfers by operation of law." Usually these are intestate...

    Precision Rimfire Matches Near NoVA

    Since we've had a fair bit of discussion by members in and around NoVA about precision rimfire (especially given that match .22 is one of the few types of ammo that can still be purchased), I thought...

    Yes, the states always argue that AR-15s are not as popular as the handguns at issue in Heller. They also argue that ARs are "dangerous and unusual" arms, so they don't get any constitutional...

    It's still faster (especially over a whole match) to just shoot at a speed where you can shoot 90-95ish percent of the available points. This makes it a slightly slower pace than USPSA minor (around...
