It's not a huge difference between the two but there is a difference to me. Ill keep playing with it and decide from there
I dunno, seems a little counter intuitive to me. The further away a sight it, the harder it SHOULD be to find.
A little training/practice for getting a consistent check weld, like just going from low ready to ready, should alleviate any issues you have in finding the dot. This drill can be done in the comfort of you home, just don't freak out the wife and kids. Also remember when training to practice with both eyes open, focusing on the target. A lot of shooters have a hard time getting use to that, even some newer shooters. With a little practice you can find the dot in your peripheral vision and complete your sight picture in split seconds.
Thanks for the headsup on the insight, 200 lumens is just right imo. Where did you get it? I'm gonna have to pick one up for myself!!!!
egads, momentary only on the light....doesn't that kind of bother you?
Does it get really hot? I'm wondering why they chose to make it momentary only......
