Pardon my ignorance Kraigster, but can you define exactly what you are referring to with a "red dot reflex" I have an Eotech 512 on an AR15 and an Aimpoint red dot on a 22 rifle but it is a big round thing that mounts on the gun where a scope would be. Both work great but would not fit on a medium size pistol. By the way I am eagerly awaiting your review on the small rail mounted lasermax. I am going to put one on a Kel-Tec PF9 if you give it a thumbs up.
I guess I fall into the baby boomer aging eyes category. I used to be able to shoot a lot better when I could see. Now I just aim in the general direction of the target and hope for the best.
