Red Dot query.
I'm looking to install a reflex style red dot sight on my S&W 627. I was wanting to buy a decent quality item without breaking the bank.
I don't need the one that the SEAL teams use. I'm not tactical, it doesn't need to be either. EOTechs are pretty snazzy, but a bit rich for my blood. I just want something that's going to hold up to a .357 magnum that is unlikely to be submerged.
I was looking at a Burris FastFire II. It appears to be a decent compromise. Opinions? Alternatives? I'd like to stay in the $225ish and under range, if realistic.
Note: I have found a Weigand base. Any opinions? I presume that as long as it fits properly, it should be fine. If I'm wrong please let me know.
My only Red Dot experience up to this point is a BSA I picked for $45 on clearance, it's doing well on my MK3. For the S&W I think a bit more investment is appropriate.

Liberals are constantly telling us about the poor and oppressed in this country. With that in mind, why do they feel the need to keep importing poor people from other countries?
