    Why train red dot pistol?

    Red dot sights give the shooter a more natural way to aim a pistol

    RDS are faster on target than iron sights

    RDS help improve law enforcement qualification/re-qual scores significantly, some reported as much as 25%

    RDS give LEO's who don't have a carbine immediately in reach a viable option on an active shooter

    RDS are superior to iron sights at night

    RDS are superior to irons on moving targets

    RDS can assist those with less than perfect vision.

    SOCOM has quietly been using them.

    RDS have taken the market by storm.
