..Lasers vs RDS..
« on: October 22, 2018, 07:25:55 AM »
.
I have each on various firearms and have an opinion as to which I believe is mo-betta but I'm curious to see if anyone else has a preference (not including night vision equipment or scopes or the various other sights that are available - just Lasers and RDS')

opinions ?

Lasers are fun, and a cool movie effect.
Open sights or red sights (for me) are better.
Now if the laser was 1KW chest hole burner...

RDS on auto pistols. Laser's on my 9 mm. and 5.56 carbines.
Tango: What do you have, if anything, on your FN 5.7? I installed a under barrel light on the factory rail on mine but I thought it threw the balance off so I removed it. Have been thinking about buying an aftermarket top mount for a Burris Fastfire red dot but still on the fence. Have a Burris on my PMR 30 and it really improves my accuracy.

I've got an IProtec Q series Laser under the barrel, rail-mounted on my (nightstand duty) 5.7

also have a Laser on my Wife's G19 and one on my AR15 (along with a Scope)

RDS' on 2 of our Glocks and 1 on a "fun gun" (a modified Ruger Charger - Tactical Innovations Rebel) .22 (only there 'cause I had an "extra" RDS, a Vortec Sparc II - would rather have a scope if anyone is of a mind to trade)

I'm of the opinion, from personal range experiences comparing the 2, that for target shooting RDS' "work" better than do Lasers  -  but for a nightstand pistol that might be called upon in an emergency situation the Laser would be a better option (no personal experience there, thank god)
