So, I recently took the plunge and got my CZ milled to accept a Trijicon RMR2 (3.5 MOA dot).
After a few months of research and namely watching a lot of Sage Dynamics videos and reading their white paper (http://docs.wixstatic.com/ugd/7dc128_50a7c57f2d284e53bca8584a7f7925b1.pdf) I decided that the red dot was right for me, and the goals I have for training.
One of the main pros for me is that there is really only one focal plane when using a red dot sight. You just look at the target with both eyes open and the dot finds what you are looking at. This plays into thousands of years of human evolution. As mentioned in the sage dynamics white paper we have been fighting with rocks for a very long time, longer than guns. We are predisposed to look at the threat before throwing the rock, not look at the rock while you throw. A MRDS plays into that evolution by allowing you to look at your target instinctively rather than focus on your firearm.
Another huge plus for me is that by staring at my target, I find the dot without much effort. I am getting better hits and doing it more consistently. My eyes are not getting better.
One huge drawback is it was not cheap, and you need to get a quality red dot. It also takes a lot of rounds to get proficient. I put 500 through it in the last week, and it is learning how to shoot all over again.
One other great/ ego smashing thing is that a MRDS will teach you exactly what you are doing wrong by exaggerating your mistakes.
Has anyone else thought about getting their slide milled for a MRDS? Has anyone ever shot with a MRDS, if so what did you think, and why?
