    Merry Christmas to me...

    My wife gave me the green light to go buy a new gun for Christmas so I decided on the 590A1, 9 shot 20" heavy barrel with the speed feed stock and ghost ring sights.

    Here are a couple of pics rounding out my black gun self defense trio, (rifle, shotgun, pistol). Shown with my Stag Arms mod 2 and a choice few of my handguns, Glock 22 RTF2, Kimber TLE, and Springfield XD .45 Compact.

    Zombies come and get some!!!

    Ace587, it's the Vortex Strikefire red dot. Here's their website.

    It's always nice to see a family photo.

    Nice looking setup there orangevol, 3 gun matches in your future?



    How many people see the problem with this setup from the Vortex site?

    Well... That bi-pod would totally interfere with fixing a bayonet.

    I've never used a Strikefire. Let's see... It doesn't look like it's mounted backwards...

    I'm gonna take a stab at it and guess that it needs a riser-mount to see over the front sight post.

    Oui ou non?

    I don't see it. I mean, besides the fact that it's a Vortex sight... ;)It appears to have an absolute cowitness instead of a 1/3rd. I'd probably remove the lens covers or at least flip the front one down. I just don't see it yet.
    Proven combat techniques may not be flashy and may require a bit more physical effort on the part of the shooter. Further, they may not win competition matches, but they will help ensure your survival in a shooting or gunfight on the street. ~Paul Howe
