Oh there is a lot of training in and outside the classroom regarding the use of RDS's. They go over the MOA of the dot and how it relates to a man sized target over distance, hold off on a moving target, etc. They in no way is a substitute for training. They can actually be considered a force multiplier. Both eyes open. You can't get much better than being able to see the entire battlefield while simultaneously engaging targets much faster than possible w/ irons. No lining up front and rear, just place the dot and squeeze. With roughly 5 years of constant on battery life and proven battlefield reliability how are irons better?
What kind of training do you have w/ red dots? Where did you get your info about them being a substitute for training?
Not trying to argue but I've sat here trying to figure out ways that irons are better.
