I talked my friend into buying a .22 rifle and he finally did by purchasing a (typical) ruger 10/22. He also bought a $50 red dot site from walmart. It seemed to be ok. A scope you look through with a red dot that apears inside of it. But this got me wondering. What seperates a $50 red dot site from an $800 eotech red dot? If all it is is different "dots" and colors than i dont really see that justifying a site that costs more than most hunting rifles. Could someone please enlighten me? And dear god i hope its not just for the "my red dot costs more than your entire gun" factor. Cause if that is it then alot of people are retarded.
