You were the one who was talking about the "smaller field of view" (your words) of the PRO as if it was a hindrance, so you're obviously using improper technique or else you'd know that isn't really a practical "thing" with a red dot. This appeal to authority by saying that you've been shooting for XX years doesn't impress me, nor should it impress anybody else (well, not in a positive way). You obviously don't want to learn, so I don't know what else to tell you except...

Talking loudly, but materially wrong is kind of the hallmark to most of his posts.

I put a $450.00 E-Otec on my Colt LE 6920 and a $49.95 Tru-Glo on my Ruger 9MM PC. They both work perfectly. A moral there somewhere

I'd be more cynical, but my apathy prevents it.

I can dig it. I've owned a Aimpoint PRO, a Aimpoint Micro T-1, and a (Chinese-made) Sig Romeo 5. All have done the job for me, but the Sig does it at about 1/4 the price of Aimpoint. That said, I'm less confident in Chinese manufacturing (soldering that breaks seems to be the cause of most troubles). And having said that, I'd still take the Chinese Sig over anything EOTech (electrical and gas seal problems have been ongoing problems, although the newer ones are supposed to be better; we'll see).

No sheet !! I only have 45 years hunting with a 2moa tube type red dot on a DW revolver with a buehler no drill mount too . 2moa ultra dot today along with a 6moa on a M&P core . Field of view along with clarity is a big thing as lighting decreases also as yardage increases .
I have an Ultradot on a .22 pistol, wonderful red dot. Wonder why you don’t hear much about them. I’ve never seen one on an AR

Ultra dot was always more of a bullseye handgun shooter and magnum handgun hunter dot optic and 1" tubes . They have ion more recent years come up with 30mm tube and now the UD6 may show up on some 3 gun AR's but UD has always been harder on battery life and still don't advertise any as some "mil spec "optic !! Not like I care much for dots optics on shoulder fired weapons for more than fun but the UD 2moa dot I have on my old dan wesson revolver works well for hunting .

The purpose is too defend myself and my family from whatever may come. I haven't had to qualify professionally since I retired 6 years ago and it has been far longer since I've had to do a stress fire course. Ammo is scarce so my shooting will be somewhat limited for the foreseeable future. I have a bit of 22lr to practice with and about 2000 rounds of 556/223 to get me through this shortage but this will not be a safe queen.
You did JUST fine. The Pro will last forever and it's a step above most things out there.

I built this gun about 8 years ago. It's not all top shelf, but I did put a decent barrel, BCG, and handguard on it. Overall I think I have about a thousand or slightly more invested. I was running a Leupold VX-ii 2-7 x 32 with the Burris PEPR mount. I just decided the other day to put a red dot on it so I ordered an Aimpoint PRO. I hope that putting a cheap optic on this gun doesn't bite me.

Meh......

Stupid question here; nevermind the optic...what is the $1,000 rifle that you've failed to post images of here in the Black Rifle forum of GT? Let us know so we can abuse you ;)

When in bright sun, when I have to turn my PRO up to see the dot, it distorts the dot to about 3x the normal size.

So yes, cheap optic.

The barrel and muzzle brake are from AR Performance. The barrel is an 18" 1:8 twist melonite treated with a Wylde chamber. The front sight is YHM steel, folding. The handguard is from Midwest. Trigger is from JP Enterprises. Rear back up sight is Magpul. Safariland rail light. BCM bolt carrier group. Magpul pistol grip and stock. DPMS receivers. Of course, the Aimpoint PRO. And the bayonet is there just as a conversation piece. It was my dad's from Viet Nam.

I have to admit, I kinda was trolling you guys. I have a weird sense of humor. At least my wife says so. I was really just trying to share my excitement about getting what is hailed as one of the best optics available. I can't wait until it arrives!
Aimpoint. Meh....

Trijicon is more my cup of tea

Cheap is relative.

A $1,000 a night Escort is “cheap” when compared to a $5,000 a night Call girl.

I've got access to all of the red dots out there.

I keep coming back to my Aimpoint Comp M3 as my favorite. You won't be sorry with a Pro.

I REALLY like the optic so far. I need one more optic for a close range rifle so I will probably pick up the Trijicon MRO for the other one. I actually thought that a red do on an SPR was kind of contrary to the purpose of that rifle so I decided to build a 10.5" pistol for the Aimpoint. Now the PRO is on the new pistol and I put the Leupold 2-7x back on the SPR. When I eventually get the MRO, I will probably put it on the pistol to keep it as light and compact as possible and I'll move the PRO to my AR9 PCC. The 10.5" pistol will be the primary defense gun. Although I did handle a 7.5" gun at a friend's house today and I like the size and handling even better than the 10.5" gun. Maybe I need another.

They all do that.

If it's that bright out, just flip up your BUIS.

IME, they work better in bright conditions anyway. My Eotech sucks in bright light, but Eo's work very well with the BUIS flipped up. Some optics aren't so hot when you need to use your BUIS.
