Your logic has no place on The Hide. Get out of here!!!!A lot of these arguments are kinda entertaining..... my contribution to the thread is: buy what you like running whether is be irons, rds, or lpvo and practice with it. Get professional training with it that will put you in stressed shooting situations like under time, shooting and moving, shooting from inside/around vehicles and from cover/concealment. If its a home defense gun only, take low light or nighttime shooting classes and training geared towards single man room/house clearing and then practice in your house. You may get weird looks from the wife but thats going to happen anyway. Don’t over complicate it and turn it into something it doesn’t have to be. Its your gun/optic and no one can tell you whats best for you. Good luck and know that you will probably have to experiment and spend some money before you find what works for you.
