Handgun scope or red dot sight

I am planning to put some type of optics on my new ppq Q4. I have never used anything other than open sights on a handgun. I plan on using some of the removable rings so I can take the optical sight off when I want to use my regular sights. I need some input on which is the best type of red dot sight, regular handgun scope or red dot sight. Thanks for any guidance.

since no guru has answered you yet, I will just say this:

I have a Q5 LE and have changed the sights that came with it. However, all my shooting will be up to 25 yds, so no need for a scope. All my red dot equipped rifles have been a problem for me, as the dot has become a flare with my bad eyes, no matter what eyeglass I use

In short, try em and use whats best for your particular situation

BUT beware, I am NOT a guru on this

Good luck...sorry youve had no answers after all this time

For a 4" Q I personally wouldn't consider any optic other than an RMR. If you need the magnification of a scope I would use a different gun.
