Making combat effective shots inside of 10 yards requires zero sights. Period. You could remove sights from the slide and still make effective hits at 10 yards and in.

Depending on skill-level, of course... :-)

I have some students that struggle at 3 with sights.

Start practicing with a Squirt gun and shoot from the hip!

It's funny how another big name in the industry, and major proponent of RDS on a handgun (not saying names, but just so happened to have been beefing with Aaron Cowan on fb a few days ago)  will damn near straight up tell you irons forward are junk and waste of money and is the wrong way no matter what .

I can probably guess who that was, but still would train with Aaron over that person any day of the week. That being said I prefer my sights behind the RDS

I have always used imgur. :)

BTW, I clarified this with them... their TOS reads pretty vague and it was bugging me ;-)

They absolutely do allow posting images you’ve uploaded there on social media and forums. What they DON’T allow is using images you upload there as content on your website.

So sleep easy - the Imgur police aren’t coming after you ;-)

Raining brass and his people did a fantastic job, and my holster mod  turned out better than I expected.

Looks good. How hard is it to pick up the red dot when aiming?

Well I think at this point muscle memory kicks in. If you're able to draw from a holster and the gun comes right up in front of your eyes where it belongs right on target, then finding the red dot Isn't going to be a problem ,I found that to be the case.. for me I just look at the Target draw the pistol and the dot Is right there. I think I'm just lucky that it happens that way I hear of people that have a hard time finding it, like I said I think it's just muscle memory from practice.

It has a lot to do with a proper presentation.
