At SHOT (Shooting, Hunting, Outdoor Trade) Show 15 years ago I was ushered into a shooting house with a lot of other writers to watch two professional shooters rapidly shoot dozens of balloons strung down the pistol course. Seconds later they stood with a lot of spent brass around their feet and all the balloons popped and one of them said, “A red-dot makes shot acquisition fast.” Since then red-dot sights have become a fixed part of the market. Many turkey hunters swear by them. An MSR geared for feral hogs begs for a red-dot. And, depending on a person’s needs and firearm choice, they can be great on a handgun.
