What red dot are you getting?Myself, I like red dots on pistol caliber carbines. Seems purposely made for snap shots at shorter ranges. I just ordered one for my .44 carbine.

black rifle has a Aimpoint on it and the other one has the Holosum HS503G, in that picture you can see i have the sight mounted all the way to the rear , i was just playing around with different spots to see which I like better , it ended up being moved all the way forward on the rail
... I prefer the speed and lightweight of the red dot on a CQB gun.
This makes me ask again... Are you using a PC9 or a PCC? Since the PC9 is a different firearm than the current PCC, I just wonder how folks are mounting their red dots to a PC9 without a rail. The options of a ring-mounted red dot are somewhat limited.I have a Ruger PC9 and absolutely love it. I use in in our men's league for the PCC class. I went with a Romeo 5 red dot knowing the 9 is limited. I used the higher mounts to co-witness with the iron sites which works well. It is very accurate, eats any bullet I pour or load for it from 124 -153.
I am 69, wear bifocals so red dots are a friendly companion. My optometrist measured me for shooting glasses and asked me if I wanted to see the target, front site, or rear site - choose one because our respective cannot focus on all three. Thus the beauty of red dots.
To further complicate things, I am right handed and left eye dominant. I shoot scopes and open sights with my right eye. A pistol with a red dot uses my left eye. I have to think about it when I am.shooting in league. The dot is perfectly round with my left eye and a squiggly line with my right. I live with it.
Check out the entry level Holsons on Amazon. They have long battery life and shake awake features for $154. I believe the modules are 403R but don't quote me.
I went with the Burris Fastfire 3. It does what it’s supposed to do, small, lightweight, not expensive and not made in china. I like it.What red dot are you getting?
