Anyone use optic sights on their home defense Glock? Pics?
I don't know why an optic wouldn't be useful on a home defence gun. I've been considering getting another Glock (got a G23 in .40) and putting an optical sight on it. The gun would be mostly for plinking, but I would consider it for home defence also.
A home defence gun doesn't have to be small, so an optic doesn't seem like it would be a hinderance. I would get a Carver Hunter mount so a set of night sights would still be visible.
Optics appear to be the way to go on rifles for close quarter combat, so why not on a pistol? With an optic you would have the advantage of greater accuracy, faster target aquisition, greater field of view, and much greater visibility of the sight in the dark.
The downside would be turning the thing on and the chance of it going out. That is why I would require a backup sight and practice the transition between the two. This goes against the KISS principle, but that doesn't seem to stop the widespread use of optics for combat rifles.
My G24C does double duty.
If anyone wants this same C-More sight and carver mount,
I have one for sale. Sold my G24. In perfect condition.
I will sell it for $400 plus shipping, or FTF in DFW.
