    I was on the fence about getting one. I had my rifle zero’d pretty well and felt really comfortable about using my iron sights. But I saw a Vortex Crossfire for under $100 so I went ahead and picked it up. So easy to use and dead nuts on target! Only issue I have is, I’ve seen so many different opinions on what yardage to zero at. I zero’d in at 25, which puts me higher than I want at 50, but it’s a home defense rifle so it really shouldn’t be a problem. This is the target I used after I got it sighted in. Put at lest 3 magazines through it waiting for a cease fire so I could go out and move it. 692a17bc168f8e189a8717f6d752f9f0.jpg

    Nice. They really do improve target acquisition and make accurate shots on multiple targets much easier.

    Give it a try. Remember, a home invasion will rarely be just one bad guy.

    I didn't really like red dots until recently. I saw what they bring to the table but just didn't have any interest.

    That has changed and they are growing on me more and more.

    The abundance of quality optics at lower prices has helped push this. They are hard to resist now.
