Pistol-mounted red-dot optics are becoming more and more of a hot topic these days. Red-dot optics allow for fast, easy target acquisition, even in low light and for eyes that are aging or have other vision problems, so it's simple to understand how a pistol/optic system of this kind could contribute to your personal safety plan. However, since this is a relatively new addition to the world of self-defense, you may have some questions. Do you need to get a special gun? Do you need to learn anything new or different? Are there any downsides? American Rifleman's Joe Kurtenbach takes two pistol-and-red-dot combos to the range to walk you through all the ins, outs and how-tos of pistol-mounted red-dot optics in this video.
