Ok... we have all of these sight options now. But do we know how to use them? Judging by what I've been seeing and reading... no. no we do not.
So lets fix that shall we?
These sights are not scopes folks. And they aren't even red dot sights. As odd is it seems... they are actually more akin in use to laser sights than they are to scopes.
If you've ever used one... you know that the retical dances around in the sight with disturbing regularity. Depending on the position of your head... the retical may be may be anywhere in that box. So where does the bullet go?
Well the bullet goes where ever the retical is.... regardless of where the retical is in the sight picture. I know.... you're thinking "bullshit." Its the truth. I'll even tell ya how to test it.
Get a boresight laser... you know the ones.. laser... goes in the chamber of your rifle. The the rifle in a vise and put that laser on some stationary object... like a door knob or something. Then sight your reflex sight on to that laser. Now turn the laser off... and turn the reflex sight on. with the weapon in the vise on in the same position... you should note that the retical is on the door knob.
Now look through the sight and move your head around. You'll see the retical moves all over the place inside the sight... but it stays right on the door knob.
So... this is how you use a reflex sight. Both eyes open... focus on your target. Bring your weapon up to the shooting position... still focusing on your target with both eyes open. A retical will appear in your vision. When its over your target... pull the trigger.
Its that simple.
