One of the most practical aiming solutions available, reflex sights are a fast target acquisition, and mounting options make these a great little enhancement to multiple shooting platforms. Commonly referred to as a micro red dot, reflex sights are big on performance and can mount on virtually any type of gun, including shotguns, handguns, ARs, and more. The reflex sight works by where the shooter looks through a piece of partially reflecting glass. On the glass is a projected aiming point. The most common reflex sights use a simple red dot; rightfully calling it the micro-red dot. Today, we at Shooting Range Industries would like to expound on the reflex sights.
Minute of Angle (MOA) Calculator
The dot of a scope measured in MOA and stands for minute of angle. One MOA is just slightly over a 1 inch at 100 yards. A 3-inch circle at 100 yards is covered by three MOA dots. At 100 yards, eight MOA would completely cover an 8-inch pie plate. The more precise a shooter can be by the smaller the MOA the finer the aiming. Particularly if your eyesight is poor, going smaller may not necessarily be the best option.
Ideal Red Dot Scope for Hunting
A micro-red dot is ideal for hunting. A reflex sight is right up your alley in the event you like shooting things that rarely sit still at relatively close range; 150 yards or closer for example. Predator hunters especially come to mind. When they are coming to the call, coyotes are usually always on the move. Making a fast target acquisition makes a reflex sight quick and precise and most shots happen fast. Reflex sights are very complimentary to growing popularity of ARs for hunting. Because you don’t have to line up a front and rear sight, the main reason why people can shoot a handgun much more accurately. People with fading eyesight no longer have to worry about seeing blurry fixed sights on their weapon. For those people who were disappointed in their shooting due to eye problems, the reflex sight can bring the excitement back.
Shotgun Sights for Wingshooting
For people who have a hard time wingshooting with a shotgun, a wide field of view reflex sight can work wonders. Because of the forgiveness that the reflex sight provides, even shotgunners who have poor form can still shoot fairly well. As long as they can still see the dot, people who have a tendency to lift their head from the stock can still break clays and make kills. Mounted reflex sights on their favorite hand cannon, the handgun hunter, with these little sights, can add much-needed yardage to your effective range. These sights can make you much more accurate.
Glock Red Dot Slide
A popular favorite hunting gun is a Glock 29, as it is a compact gun that doesn’t usually bode well for long-range accuracy due to its short sight plane. However, with the reflex sight and solid rest, you won’t have to over think shooting a deer out to 90 yards. Without the sight, most can, at best, hit a target at half the distance. With this effective unit, most avid shooters can double their range.
