Like mm13 eluded to a magnified optic isn't ideal for shooting w/i your normal defensive distances.
Though not an Aimpoint the Primary Arms micro RDS is nice and under $200 w/ mount.
The Aimpoint is very popular for a reason. It works very well. Battery life alone is reason enough to like it. 5 years of constant on at the medium setting.

I would recommend the eotech. It's good all around and used by the cops. It's fine for close quarters and out to 100 yds is acceptable.
Don't look at what LEOs use as a measuring stick. They rarely use them and they are usually purchased by suits.
