Red dot sites

Trijicon red dot pistol sites what do you think of them for competition shooting?

I've got a Trijicon on my Glock 34. It's the fiber optic/tritium version.

I've found that it allows me to shoot faster than I could with iron sights while still maintaining acceptable accuracy. I've never had any difficulty in spotting the dot when I bring it up to the target. I also don't use co-witness sights with it.

I love em. Anything that helps with accurate sighting is welcome, especially at my age. Big dots, scope or red dot. I think about everyone is in agreement that red dots are faster and more accurate than iron sights. That doesn't translate to use of a tiny moa dot for speed shooting. I recommend a larger red dot for that...8 moa or similar. P22 with a 13 gram red dot installed....glued on, there aren't many other options. 1917

Agree with dat ^^^^^. I've currently got 4 pistols set up with Shield RMS 'red dots'. With open sights I always had a hard time trying to find the right 'glasses' combo....I'd be able to see the sights clearly and a fuzzy target or fuzzy sights and a 'in focus' target.

With my distance glasses the 4 MOA 'red dot' and the target are both in focus. Without my glasses the target is in focus and the dot is just a little bit fuzzy...STILL able to hit 'minute of man' with that fuzzy dot.....it's probably an 8 MOA fuzz dot.

Yeah me too. With iron sights I have to lean my head way, way back so that I can see through the bottom of the tri-focals. And, I have to align my eye with the rear sight and line up the front sight with both. On a red dot all I have to do is put the dot on whatever...and that is where the impact is....uh, if I do my part. In other words, it isn't necessary to precisely align your eye.....see the dot, put in on the target, pull the trigger.....repeat. Now at self defense distances I don't need anything but a reliable firearm. A loaded one. 1917
