I guess one most often tries to fit his/her AR into one category or another - close range or long range (i.e. hunting, etc).
But for the sake of discussion I'm trying to come up with a setup whereby one can acquire quickly a target at close range should it be required (i.e. home defense). And YET have the setup allow one to avoid fully engaging a target from say 100 to 150 yards, possibly more. As a hunter growing up we often utilized scope mounts with see-thru rings or offset mounts, but one, that is real ugly on an AR and well...'nough said - it's fugly! And I'm sure today's options are more plentiful.
What's out there that serves as a site AND a "scope" of sorts? And what supply outlet has the best pricing?
Thanks for the insight.
Just for the record, I don't use my AR for HD...have other means for that
