Personally I think they are great for refining your shooting skills on a handgun. Most take a little getting used to to actually find the dot fast but once you get that skill then they are dern accurate. The only issue I have is I would never trust my life to one... As I've said more than once, I was taught in a class on coastal navigation given by the U.S. Power Squadron that you never solely trust your life to electronics.... so, I forget what the term is for the red dots that you can also use the iron sights too is... found it... "Co-witness" is the term... maybe my brain will be able to retain that now. I'd only have a pistol with a red dot that I could potentially use for self defense if it also had the co-witness iron sights.
