Whats your opinion? My question is intended for discussion on standard glass optics of variable and fixed power, not any of the halographic styles such as the EOtech. I have 2. One is mounted on my Colt Competition HBAR, and the other is on a Contender barrel in .45-70 Govt. Both are hunting guns. I`ve never really found any advantage in having the feature, except maybe in early evening low light conditions. But even then I find that the lighted reticle can obscure the target, even when the brightness is adjustable. I`ve found no advantage in them for daylight shooting. Whats your expierence?
