Everybody has been talking about the next big thing within the firearm industry. With each man to his own view, folks within the industry have engaged in baseless arguments which serve no purpose to either party. Listening to these arguments amuses me at times. Most of these arguments are made by folks who are completely invested in a gun, that they lose their objective. This is very common among folks who have taken a quantum leap into the world of pistol mounted optics.
Before losing your cool, please not that I am not about to discuss the benefits pistol optics. There are thousands of online materials that have done this, and of course they are very helpful. Google can be of help here. Alternatively, you can seek the opinion of a firearms trainer. I understand that not every shooter will shoot at the same set up at a time. There are some environments which are ideal for optic, while there are some that don’t. The best thing you can do for yourself is to find the option that best fits you.
To make things straight, I erected a well-built set up which comes with an incredible optic. It took me a long while to get it tested in real time, because I had to do lots of comparison and contraction. I am a good shooter, but it was a pity that I operated a handgun that has no optics.
I was so determined to know of this option is right for me, I had to reach out to lots of other people who had the same interest as me. I learned a lot from my discussion with them. I discovered that a lot of persons were not going through the same experience with me. They knew what they wanted before placing an order for the gun.
You can’t get a perfect system. Each system has a positive as well as a negative side. Only after carefully considering each side, can you conveniently arrive at a decision. As I asked more people their opinion regarding the cost of handgun with optic installed on it, it became clear to me that objectivity was their primary concern.
I know a good number of shooter who have gone out of their way in conducting evaluations of their pistol arrangement. Many arrived at their decision through trial and error. Some chose to go in an entirely different direction, basing their decision on justification. Pride or high ego you may call it. People have just boxed themselves into a corner. Being wrong isn’t what they can afford to do. These pistols aren’t toys to be joked around with, considering the fact that it costs between $1500 and $2000 to purchase them. If it turns out that this pistol arrangement is okay for you, have a blast. But if after spending huge amount of money on it and it turns out it didn’t improve your shooting skill, don’t bother justifying your investment, just get rid of it. You are the master of your life
Being a great tool, a pistol isn’t any different from a hammer or shovel. It is the duty of a craftsman to know a tool improves or does otherwise to his work. You are a craftsman, so act like one. When choosing the tool that will help defend you, you are better off going for the best, considering all your options while maintaining your objectivity.
