  1. Oh. Their website says that the Venom is available in 6 MOA so that wasn't obvious.
  2. It looks like the Vortex is the most appealing option so far among the ones listed. I played with an RMR and the window was too small and too tinted for me to like it. I am looking at the Venom and the Viper but it's hard to tell what the difference is between them in terms of function. I can't tell which has the larger window. They both weigh the same and are available witha 6 MOA dot which is appealing. The only obvious difference that is standing out to me is that the Viper takes a CR 2032 Battery at the base meaning you'd have to remount the optic to change the battery and the Venom takes a CR 1632 Battery in a compartment at the top allowing you to leave the dot mounted to change the battery. What else am I missing?
  3. I totally agree with that point. I find co-witnessing a little distracting on rifles and on a pistol it just seems even more cluttered.
  4. You really like the triangle that much? I tried one on a rifle a while ago and I found it very unintuitive.
  5. I was considering this gun until I noticed that it is only cut to take their dot and that it was only a 3 MOA dot. I found that annoying and that's why I decided might as well go back to Glock. Thank you for telling me what you liked about the Vortex options. Thank you.
  6. Why did you end up going with that one?
  7. How much does the size of the window matter vs the size of the dot for finding it though? I know there are options with larger windows but I though a 9 moa dot would make it easy to find.
  8. I'm getting ready to pull the trigger on a Glock 19 MOS so I can shoot the USPSA Carry Optics division. I'm leaning very heavily towards one of the Trijicon Dual Illumn models with the 9 MOA green dot because I think it looks cool and I like the idea of never having to fiddle with it once it's zeroed. I know the limitations for the Dual Illumn models but I played with the green version in the store and it was much brighter than any version of the amber colored options I've ever seen in a dual ilumn RMR. What are you all putting on your pistols? Are there other good options out there?
  9. Well ok then. That just reminds me why I'm not super fond of IDPA anymore. Guess I"ll just put the large safety on and call it done.
  10. I have a SP01 I got in a trade that has the ambi safety levers. My hand is not large enough to reach it though so I want to put the largest extended safety on it I can while still being legal for IDPA's ESP and USPSA's Limited. I don't know that I'll ever actually shoot it in either I just want to know that I can if I want to. First question what safety is that? Second question how hard is it to install? Will there be any "fitting" required?
  11. Since when do we need to rationalize purchasing toys? When there are other toys I also want to buy. Haha.
  12. What's the difference between Gen 1 and Gen 2 mags? They are very non specific about what exactly has changed between the two mags only that it would be more reliable to use Gen 1 Mags with a Gen 1 gun and Gen 2 mags with a Gen 2 gun. Curious. At least there is an easy way to ID the two though. An easy way to ID the two Gen guns too with the handguards. I am trying to convince myself the $1800 price tag for the carbine is worth it because I really want the lighter recoil of a gas gun.
  13. What's the difference between Gen 1 and Gen 2 mags?
  14. I have no experience with it, I don't know anyone that does so I don't want to in any way make this sound like I am endorsing it but I have been looking at the Meprolight RDS which is very interesting to me and cheap at $350. Might be worth a look.
  15. 30 round MPX mags are less than $5 more than factory 33 round Glock mags if you know where to look and they seem to be plentiful atm. So you can get MPX mags for $40-45? I'd love to know where. The expensive ass mags are a big deterent to me thinking about a Sig.
