    OK I am looking at sneeking a ruger charger into the safe with some of my tax money. I am looking at getting the Red and black stock model. Now I need to figure out what optics to go with. Burris speed dot 135 or Burris 3-12x36mm pistol scope.

    If you're wanting absolute precision, you'll be dissatisfied with red dot sites-go with the conventional scope and turn it down until you get used to it or are shooting from rest.

    I have shot the 3-12 burris a few times. A buddy of mine has a herd of remmy xp-100's all with 3-12 burries scopes on them.

    I am still up in the air I have a red dot on my Neos and it is a blast. But yes accuracy is not the worlds greatest. But they are so much funnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAa

    I wouldn't choose either, I'd get a Green Laser...when properly set up they're more accurate than the Red Dot & faster target aquisition than a scope.

    Not to mention WAY LIGHTER!!! :D

    I don't care about weight. Your talking to a guy that takes a 17# rifle deer hunting.

    You must get money like we get snow.
    Those are quite expensive, no matter who you are.
    I chose red dot. 1. for price 2. quicker aiming.

    My $.02
    Dont spend it all in 1 place, please. ;)

    S.S.

    go watch "PUSH" at the theatre for a nice example of how well green light lasers work :)

    It's nice to be able to put a dot on something quickly and pop it.

    But to be honest, unless you are shooting it from a supported position where you can use the bipod, accuracy ain't going to be particularly great.
