Red Dot: For the Aging, for the Long-Term, for the Win

Another idea I had to overcome was the idea that students MUST learn to shoot with iron sights first.  But I’ve changed that viewpoint.  I feel it is important to understand how both sighting systems work but if a student wishes to shoot a dot for whatever reason that is their decision.  It is not mine.  Many of my clients are at the point in their life where readers are required and just like me cannot see their front sights.  If a dot makes shooting easier and more enjoyable than I say go for it! As long as they understand that they must still employ proper shooting fundamentals.  For those thinking red dots are a fad; I can say they are here to stay!
