Tomorrow I’m going to try to get to the range to sight in my Venon. The weekend have been very busy lately.I have Vortex Venoms (3 MOA dot) on my S&W 686 and a Ruger MkII. They've been very solid, have nice crisp dots and clear glass. You can't beat the Vortex warranty, either. I also have a Holosun 507K with the ACSS green reticle on my HK P2000SK. The Holosun is significantly smaller and definitely more "feature packed". I like the green better than red and the ACSS reticle basically eliminates searching for the dot upon presentation.....but it was also almost $80 more expensive than the Vortex. Shake awake is more of a relevant feature for use on a nightstand gun than on an EDC because when carrying the gun it will almost always be in motion and hence, on. Not much different than turning the sight on when you holster it and turning it off when you take it off at night.
I'm going to try one of my Venoms on my Custom TLEII with a Burris Fastfire dovetail mount to see how I like a dot on that pistol.
I’m a fan of shake awake feature but for the gun I’m using the red dot on, it’s not really going to make a difference for me.
The Holosun was what I really thought I was going to buy. I even have the mounting plate for one. At some point the Venom might go on something else and I buy a Holosun.
Thanks for your input.
