I have been shooting iron sited pistols from the 80’s, shot IDPA, and USPSA in production class. I’m in my late 40’s, I have needed glasses in my mid 20’s for an astigmatism, then last year the eye doc said I needed bifocals. I have a set of glasses with line and the reading Rx on the bottom, and a set with no reading Rx. I tried the no line bifocals and could not stand it. Now I have to decided if I want the front site or target in focus. I have been picking the front site.
After reading about red dots on pistols, that the dot and target can be in the same focal plane. I’m thinking of giving Carry Optics a try. After doing some research it seem that most people are using RMR’s in competitions. But, I have also read that the Delta Points have a larger window which makes the dot easier to pick up, and that the window is not tinted as the RMR. I'm not planning to add back up iron sites, this is going to be a game gun. With the Delta Point having the ability to add the rear site to scope is nice, no need for a rear site milling, just need to add a tall front site. I’m getting really close to pulling the trigger on the Delta Point, and having my G34 Gen 3 milled for it. I have a couple questions. Is anybody on here using a Delta Point? How are they holding up in competition? If I want, after the slide is milled, can I take the optic off and shoot production?
