i didn't have any mechanical malfunction with the red dot sights
i tried. i did get tired of twisting the knob back and forth to change
the brightness as the daylight shifted from dawn to bright midday
back to dusky dark. the only way i know to have it right is to keep
mounting the red dot equipped gun to your shoulder periodically to
check for a proper sight picture. if you have to do that, you might
as well be waving your arms about, and jogging in place. not very
stealthy while hunting wary animals.
myself, i also went back to a plain scope. always "on" and no batteries
to worry with, no knobs to fiddle with. if it's too dark in the morning,
it's likely not light enough to be legal shooting hours, same for the
late evening. of course, being able to "see in the dark" is a big selling
point for optics manufacturers in their advertisements. really another
answer to one of those questions that don't exist.
The United States doesn't have a gun control problem.
We have a people control problem.
Honor the Texas flag;I pledge allegiance to thee, Texas,
