Thread: Red dot vs iron sight gun

  1. #291
    This one was for the interwebs bragging rights. The distance about 22 yards. There are holes from a previous doubles drill in there, I was negative-taping.

    Didn't happen, one out. No bragging rights.

    “Well," said Pooh, "what I like best," and then he had to stop and think. Because although Eating Honey was a very good thing to do, there was a moment just before you began to eat it which was better than when you were, but he didn't know what it was called.

    Working back at pistol

    Started training pistol again after 6 months off.

    Wrist injury I think is pretty healed up now.

    Getting back in the saddle. It took about two weeks of training back to get to this point.

    Currently I’m still within the acceptable dickhead parameter of PF 2017+.

    All the Cool Guys have Binocular Vision

    Took an intermediate pistol class a week ago, my first outing with and RDS-quipped handgun, my Staccato C2 with PA Holosun/ACSS. We did the tape over objective to demonstrate the brain's ability to fuse left and right eye imagery and thus the value of shooting with both eyes open. I explained to the instructor that I didn't have binocular vision, but he couldn't get the picture. He asked me what I saw when on target; I answered: the red dot in my right visual field, the target in my left visual field. We did some shooting drills at close range and I would hit the target by simply matching the outline of the RDS with that of the target. He finally gave up and let me remove the tape. When I graduated from University in 1967 I considered enlisting in the Air Force but only if I could at least pass the basic physical for pilot training; no go as I was unable to pass the binocular vision test.

    I have experienced an issue, fortunately not often, where my brain switches to my left eye and I loose the sights completely; this can occur because my shooting glasses are set up with 2 meter focus for the right (dominant) eye and distance focus left eye. Distance targets tend to be clearer in the left eye as a result and my brain can select the wrong eye when it gets off task. This is post cataract surgery where, obviously, I can't change focus. The 2 meters (1/2 diopter add) works well for both irons and RDS.

    Back up to speed

    I love red dots.
