Glock and Smith and Wesson are both making RMR-compatible guns now.I have seen the red dots advertised for pistols lately but I thought that you had to fasten them to a rail? Do you get the pistol drilled for a rail? I can acquire the target faster with a red dot than I can with a laser and I can shoot the carbine that I have the red dot mounted on a lot steadier than I can the pocket pistol. Problem is that I can't carry the carbine concealed.
A laser will not give away your position unless there is smoke or dust in the air. Of course, if the threat is looking right at you, they will see the laser diode light up on your weapon...but if they are looking right at you, chances are they already see you. It's not like the movies - you don't see the beam going from the laser to the target.I would prefer to have a red dot and a light/laser combo myself. You can see the red dot before and during light activation. A light/laser will give away your position once on.
Old eyes so hard to see the irons these days. Would love to hear views of which direction you would go.
