RED DOT COMBAT PISTOLS II
Excerpt from the Introduction
"I mentioned then, and hold to the view now, that technology will drive the state of the art of combat shooting forward, and that skills will adapt to keep up with and take advantage of technology. There will always be those archaic personnel that insist all they need will be a good set of iron sights on old slab-sides and that those new-fangled pistol optics will slow them down (not that they were so fast to begin with).
But the reality is that these "new fangled pistol optics" now sit in the holsters of police officers, military operators and skilled private citizens, and have been there for a nearly half decade thus far.
Rather than slow anyone down, or cause the proverbial dogs and cats to move in together, their presence has allowed skills to advance and surpass what was possible with older methods and older equipment to meet the new threats of today.
It isn't 1975 any longer and the threats are in fact quite different. While the "mugger in the parking lot" is still as much a threat as he was in 1975, there is just as real and just as prolific a threat in the guise of the active shooter or jihadist. Our skills and gear should not be limited by tradition, nor by fear of modernity.
I still see some get it wrong in the industry. And while that makes the instructor/evangelist in me frustrated, it makes the capitalist businessman in me leap for joy.
It has been three years since I wrote the original Red Dot Combat Pistols book, and a great deal of water has passed under the bridge. So much so that I now set forth to write an update to that. This will include my views on the current state of the industry, a review of new products, and some things we have learned along the way."
