Duty Pistol Optics?

from: http://www.thetacticalwire.com/features/226670

Advantage of single point of focus, disadvantage everything else? Perhaps it's time to re-examine pistol optics for duty.

Shooters got to try the RMR on pistols by SIG and Glock.

"Now, how well do they work in adverse light environments; Indoors or when you're running a weaponlight for target ID? I have no idea. Does the reticle shine back enough to prevent target ID in that last moment? Not sure. No one said we're jumping ship today, but it's time more of us got a look. Dave Spaulding tried a mini-red dot on a pistol. I notice his current gun has metal sights.

That said, it's far easier driving the dot to the target and controlling the trigger than learning to use metal sights. It's the wave of the future - whatever problems we can identify in the simulators.

We can climb aboard now or get dragged aboard later."
