In this installment of RECOILtv's Training Tune Ups, we join Dan Brokos of Lead Faucet Tactical, and guess what…we ain't shooting today! Today, we are going to discuss an ultra popular topic amongst shooters, the decision on whether you run a red dot system or the good ol trusty iron sights on your pistol. A point of contention for a lot of shooters on either side, we sit down with Brokos to discuss the pros and cons of each set up. Seen through years of experience in both the military and training avenues, Brokos gives us his opinion on best and worst case scenarios for each, and the most important aspect regardless of preference: training. No matter the platform, no matter the set up, whichever you choose for your handgun, training is the only thing that will keep your competency at its highest level. With things to remember like battery life, weather, ranges, and accuracy, there is a lot of information to think about and digest on this subject. So are you team red dot, or team iron sights? Check this video out to see which side of the fence Brokos chooses!
