With a redot or HWS I can just rip the rifle to the should an alignment or not sqeeze off the hitting shot.
What about the ACOG?
you still have to get behind the sight.
plus your not going to just rip off shots and hit without proper marksmanship. that only happens in bad tv
the truth is that optics are no substitute for proper technique. speed and accurcy come with training. once you reach that ability you soon realize how limiting red dots are.
i train by doing cowboy action shooting some folks do other types of competition. shooting is shooting regardless of platform.
up to 25ish yards i dont need to use sights or optics much at all. targets past that are far enough away that the acog reticle really comes into its own. 100+ the magnification really helps.
im prolly describing it poorly
