“Focus on the front sight.” If you have ever been to training or had a decent shooter help you, I bet you have heard that before.
According to every instructor for the last 60 years, the front sight is where you must focus in order to hit your target. It seems “reasonable” to focus there. You keep your rear sight and target in alignment and with the front sight you can more accurately hit your target, where you are aiming. The problem I have is how are you aiming at a point on the target when you are focusing on the front sight? Continue reading red dot / reflex sight vs traditional sights on a pistol→

“What? It’s a fake? I will get them off my shelf right away!” he said. That’s how this article was given birth.
I have kept this article under wraps for almost 2 years, partially to give the business time to do what he said, and partially because, well I don’t have a good reason. I also was looking for some more information I had.
Let’s start with a little background, until 2014 I did not care about small reflex sites and did not keep up with their technology or cost. It was a result of this incident that I began my research and study of the small reflex sites. I have used “holo” sites on rifles for decades, I just had not investigated or bought the small ones.

On December 26th 2014, I received a box from XS Sights. I was awarded the Good Guy package for a question I posted and was read on StudentoftheGunRadio.com (Jarrad, Paul, if you know the episode, feel free to post it in the comments below, I forgot).
