Discussions on combat sights, combat shooting, and handguns are often hi-jacked by those with an embarrassing lack of experience. All they know is what they have read and much of that isn’t accurate. A shooter should study. That is true, but they should also gain practical experience and meet the instructor half way with this experience.

Because of its small size, I recently installed and fired the sight on a Rock River Operator to see how the First Strike worked on close-in targets, possibly to run in tandem with a scope for 3-Gun rifle events. One nice aspect of the First Strike is that there’s no set eye relief, so I could move the sight and the riser to get the head position I wanted. I eventually decided (for now) to use the First Strike as my primary optic on the RRA.
Given the rush at the gun counter, it is no surprise that optics is a hot category as well. Going through my notes, I have selected four more optics from the 2013 SHOT Show that you really need to consider before making your next purchase.
Given the rate products are flying off the shelves at Cheaper Than Dirt! and elsewhere around the country, it’s not worth being too picky in deciding which products deserve flavor of the week treatment, so I am not going to even try.
