I'm replacing the scope on my Ruger charger with a Red dot. I haven't fired it with the red dot yet so I guess there is a chance I will go back to the scope but probably not. I'm wondering what do you use a scope on a handgun for? I find it to be to slow for aiming to be of any use in a defensive situation, and I can't imagine engaging something at a distance where magnification is required. Maybe I'm uninformed, this is the first handgun scope I have used and its a decent one, I paid like $200 for it, Nikon 2-7X scope but I just don't find it useful and I'm hoping someone can tell me what they use theirs for.
