    nah.. If my life ever depends on something I have a good gun to grab. I've done the combat soldier thing, and yea, it's nothing like what Im' doing when I go shooting now days and 99.483% sure it'll never be like that.

    We're good on our hundred dollar stuff. :)

    If that little over half a percent possibility does come true there's a Colt Aimpoint combo in my safe or a Colt Eotech combo. Either way I'm good.

    Is the H1/T1 Uncle Sam approved? If not then they're not combat capable.

    You are, what, 30 at most?

    Yep, same thing I said to the old timers when I was younger.

    Nope. My laughter is the amusement I see myself in you and how things truly come around.
    Wait till another twenty years.

    Once again, where do you go for these classes? Gunsite? Thunder Ranch? Front Sight? Any well known and well established training center?

    No, if you were to have gone to a well established facility then you would know that these facilities even have pre-basic marksmanship courses to make sure that the shooters even know which way the bullets fly.

    Show me in any of my post that I have said cheap optics are just as good as quality optics. Come on, I have 40K+ posts, surely you can find one post of me equating an NCStar to an Aimpoint?

    Pistol 250, 350, 499 with the last course was two years ago.

    Rifle 170, 270, AK, Battle Rifle. Last course was three years ago.

    I'll bet that plenty of people have listened to my sage advices on GlockTalk than your Mr. Combat advices.


    If that's makes you feel good and wise, then go for it, grasshoppa.

    I never claimed to be some sort of xpurt unlike you. You see, no matter how good or badass you think you are, or may be in real life you truly are as good and badass as you claim, some people simply don't give a damn. As soon as you can get that through your head, it'll save a lot of headache and blood pressure.

    FNFAL, your posts and claimed shooting background do not match. This means one of 2 things. Either you are lying or trolling.

    I just called up a gentalman that has trained quite a bit w/ Gunsite and is certified to instruct for them.

    I had a kid bragging about his time w/ Triple Canopy as we were walking onto the range. After about 5 min. I asked him who he recieved his training from. W/O giving him the chance to respond I asked, "Triple Canopy?" His responce was yes. What he didn't know was that my former boss, now instructor, was a trainer for Triple C.

    Like that kid something is not adding up here.

    And guess what? I don't really care if you think I'm lying or not.

    Maybe I lied. Maybe I didn't. You'd never know. And I don't care if you'd know or not knowing or prove I'm a liar or a troll.

    And I'm sure that others on GlockTalk don't care either.

    Trolling? Am I the one that comes into threads that talk about budget optics and budget guns then rag on others about how these things aren't fit for "serious use" and "combat".

    I said I wasn't posting in the thread again but...

    I've seen pics of Fal from his military days and more current pics, so he's not lying about his prior service.

    Other than that, just knock it off already. This is total BS and the constant arguing in multiple threads is ruining this forum and I wouldn't be surprised if the plug got pulled and he puts the black rifle forum out of its misery.

    Well I hope you did.

    Nobody is questioning his service. I don't think anyone here would do so. FNFAL has shared his military experience and it was discussed.

    I know it can be hard to follow w/ all the back and forth but that is the main cause of the argument here. People go on about things they think they know. Then when someone sets the record straight, boom, the circus begins.

    Trolling may be a bit harsh.......looking for an argument better?

    We've butted heads for a while now......I've always considered
    it in good fun. You have GREAT ideas, experiences, & I respect
    most of what you say.

    However, Mike is about the same, you to are very similar. Both
    of you are completely correct, but both of you are seeing the
    "other side of the coin"

    To the both of you,.......just because someone has a differing opinion,
    it does not mean they are arguing!

    OK, let's get this budget optic thread back on track...

    OP, my buddy has a Sightmark and he has not had good luck with it so far. No matter how much he adjusts the quick release, it does not stay tight on the rifle. Tighten it down, shoot a magazine, tighten it down again. It also seems to be canted when mounted on his rifle.

    To be fair though, his Sightmark was not new in box. It was a takeoff from a rifle sold to a pawnshop. Pawnshop owner didn't think that it added any value to the rifle, so he offered it to my friend for cheap.

    I like the Bushnell TRS25. I put one on my son's M&P 15-22. I think it is "as good as" my Millet Multidot-sp that rides on my rifle. Can I say that? :supergrin:

    I think an EOTech is in my future, but today I run a budget optic just to see if I even like red dots. The Millet was the first red dot I have used. Figured for less than $100 give it a try...if I didn't like it, it could go on a .22 for a fun, plinking gun. Kids like them, and don't know the difference.

    Don't know if the forum censors will let that fly. :whistling:

    This is my first foray into black rifles with optics so I'm kind of like you. If the situation or my desires go past something like the TRS25 then I will cross that bridge when I get there.

    I welcome differing opinion. Opinion and fact are two different things however.

    If you're not ready when you get to that bridge it'll be to late. Best case scenario you'll be stuck at the range w/ a non functioning optic.

    I completely understand & agree 100% Mike.
    Sometime be best learn from our failures & mistaken choices.
    Pay once, cry once........I bought my CompM2 when I was active,
    it has to have 10k+ rounds fired while mounted, never a hiccup!

    The way I see it, if I'm going to bet my life on a piece of equipment, I'll get quality stuff, even if it's expensive. If it's a toy, I'll set a budget and get the best I can within that constraint. For me, a $99 micro dot would be fine on my .22 plinker/pest control pistol, but I'd go with an RMR if I was setting up a pimped out Sig/FN/Glock for defense.

    I've never come into a thread that talks about combat training or high quality guns/optics combo and tell people that it's worthless or whatever.

    I only respond to postings in these types of threads against those combat commando types who think that everything is about "serious use" and "combat".

    What does my combat record or combat training have to do in a thread about budget optics and zombie rifles?

    What does YOUR combat record or training have to do with a thread about budget optics and zombie rifles? Unless you think that zombies are real...
