  1. Red Dots… are they total bs on a compact?

    I could see this having an impact if you did it to a gun you already were comfortable shooting with irons. The additional height over bore would change presentation a bit, so it would take muscle memory some reps to adjust.
  2. Red Dots… are they total bs on a compact?

    That's something I didn't consider, so good point. I suppose that's because I don't like the thought of a plate and have tried to avoid those systems. But if I could afford a Staccato, I think I'd still give it a go. But for flush mount optics, it seems really weird to me to not find the dot...
  3. Red Dots… are they total bs on a compact?

    I'm not sure I understand what people mean when they say this. For a properly zero'd pistol, the hold needs to be way off to not even see the dot upon presentation. That is, unless the dot is broken like my old Romeo Zero POS that was like 100 MOA off to the top right the last range trip before...
  4. Interesting observations when shooting with or without prescription glasses

    The curvature of your prescription lens is most likely altering your perception of the refracted light on the red dot. And I would only assume the stronger the prescription, the worse the effect. I've been reading up on this topic because I was considering getting astigmatism correction...
  5. You Could Say I Am a Sniper Now ...

    The number of "Google: Show me some gay sh*t. No, like really gay sh*t." searches that were required to meme this thread up must have been staggering. Let's just hope your wives and girlfriends don't know how to "about:cache", or y'all have some explaining to do.
  6. New MA AG/Sen. Moore proposing silencer ban update

    Completely unrelated to this topic, but talking about pandering.... did anyone catch the Ticketmaster Senate hearing? Now Ticketmaster is indeed a terrible company and deserves some major penalty and shake up, but it was hysterical seeing the senators pander to constituents over it. They all...
  7. New MA AG/Sen. Moore proposing silencer ban update

    Tinfoil hat time--Do you think the state is resistant because many cities spent stupid money on shot spotters, and even though they full on know a "silencer" won't make a gun silent, that it could impact the already wonky results they are getting from those things?
  8. New MA AG/Sen. Moore proposing silencer ban update

    So stop dangerous individuals from buying illegal firearms and illegal accessories by strengthening already ridiculous laws. Would they not just continue to purchase illegal firearms and illegal accessories? This is punishing law abiding citizens for the crimes of criminals who are going to just...
  9. Glock Pre Ban Mag$

    In that wildly far flung scenario I posted, the Chinaman would be incentivized by crazy profit margin and low overhead. But I think we've possibly put too much thought into it now, as it would never happen in the first place and was more of a "what if" day dream. I'm in the latter group of just...
  10. Glock Pre Ban Mag$

    I'm so focused on the sh*t MA laws that this obvious approach escaped me. lol. I'm betting a Chinese clone factory could easily replicate 1:1. Glock mags are simple if you have the injection molding and stamping equipment already. Little investment in new molds, but at a ridiculous profit...
  11. RMR, optic, Red Dot for a Glock?

    I don't doubt that, but we were talking about the stance of boycotting China's legal trade goods. I was just pointing out China's #1 legal export to the US is pharmaceuticals, not consumer electronics. And even in the category of consumer electronics, gun optics is such a small piece of the pie...
  12. Glock Pre Ban Mag$

    Not sure about 2 part polymers. I believe Glock's material is a glass filled polymer. So not exactly off the shelf and requires specific injection molding specifications that might be tricky to replicate. There was a rumor it was Dupoint Zytel, but who really knows. That said, people in free...
  13. Glock Pre Ban Mag$

    To be clear, I kind of meant I was surprised that some gray market level operation, possibly triad backed that doesn't really care about things like it being completely illegal to do, wasn't already doing it. If they are already doing illegal things, then I can't see them balking at a 1,625%...
  14. RMR, optic, Red Dot for a Glock?

    I get why people don't want to support China via Holosun, but in the grand scheme of things, that's a pittance compared to things like Chinese exports of pharmaceuticals to USA. But no one talks about that because the alternative is to never buy generic drugs. Ideally, we would buy neither, but...
  15. If given the choice, Glock made in USA or Austria?

    I think if this were a high precision device or machine, like a mechanical watch or fancy car, I'd want the assurance of original tooling and craftsmanship from the OG factory. But given Glock's design is praised for its simplicity, and this simplicity is probably part of its reliability, I...
  16. Glock Pre Ban Mag$

    I'm surprised some factory in China hasn't figured out how to perfectly knock off Glock U notch magazines, turning about $4 in parts and labor into like $65/per.
  17. Quality Red Dot Sight for AR Platform

    They make it in 1.43 - 1.93", so I think one is a co-witness.
  18. Quality Red Dot Sight for AR Platform

    For me, this set up is like the optimum reference model for AR red dots. What all other companies are chasing. Just pricey though, so I haven't gotten a set yet. I currently use a Vortex Sparc Solar. Comes with a decent mount. Upshot is up to a 150k hour battery life. Downside is that this...
  19. 1970's Colt AR-15 Upgrade Advice

    So after this law take effect, you could, say, buy a red dot or sling for your rifle while in WA? What if you wanted to shoulder carry a broom and make sure you were deadly accurate with it?
