    that... seems like it would get in the way alot. Anything can be used with practice I guess, but I don't think I'd like that thing on there. Nice gun tho... I have a USP in 9mm.

    So, can someone explain those shallow depth pistol and rifle optics? The flat holographical type ones?

    Is that what you're going to install?

    No I'm wanting a red dot scope like this

    The others have a laser / dot that reflects of the front optic and you can only see it if you are on target.

    I thought about one of these types but the other looks cooler :cool:

    I have the same setup with a cheaper red dot. Its great at the range, but I haven't been able to find a holster to hold it. I also have a UTL - same problem with a holster - that I keep on it at home. Sights are Trijicon. Great setup at night.

    yeah, almost any combat shooting situation I would be in would be at night, in low light, cramped quarters etc. I want to just look over my gun with normal night sights and light the other guy up. Im sure a bling scope set up works great for comps and junk, but when the chips are down and all thats between my wife and a psycho rapist is my USP, i just want normal night sights.

    Red dot's off at the house - tends to snag things. Just the UTL (Light) mounted on the rail so I can see what I am aiming at if I need to and the trijicons so I can see the sights and aim.

    Thus the three guns! :deal:

    Compact 40 to carry daily :cool:
    Fullsize 9 for comps :cool1:
    Fullsize 45 for fun and probley comps later in the year (steel matches, I'll still use the 9mm for IDPA/IPSC/USPSA) :grin:
