    Having a holster that doesn't leave any chance of external material making its way inside of a trigger guard is one of those safe practices.
    So you carry a WW2 Tanker holster then?

    Only when I ride my T-34. For all other occasions CCC or JMCK offerings molded without any gaps or holes between holster and trigger guard keep me at a state of relative calmness. But only relative, for you never know when an inquisitive and deep question is going to come my way on the m4c.

    I personally treat backup sights as just that, backups. If you use a reliable optic and take care of it, you should never need your secondary sighting system. I personally never want to compromise my primary sight picture or over clutter it for backup purposes.

    A number of people have expressed this sentiment in this thread, but I am puzzled by it. The only time I am seeing the BUIS is if I canít find the dot ó either because the dot failed or something about my index has failed. (Moving quickly, it can be bard to know whether the problem was a dot failure or a ďyouĒ failure, and with some dot failures the dot can go on and off making it harder to know what exactly is happening.) Otherwise I donít see BUIS, regardless of whether they are black, tritium or colored. If you are routinely seeing BUIS, I would tactfully suggest you are not shooting the dot correctly. While I donít see the BUIS in routine shooting, if the dot isnít there, I want easily visible BUIS, especially with the small, tinted RMR display that makes BUIS harder to see.

    This discussion has less to do with RDS and more with the usefulness of tritium sights.

    In reality, it does not matter and is entirely a preference.

    I've had optic sights break, I've had them rendered useless by rain and mud, and I've had dot wash out or get fractionated by the incoming sun, regardless how well I took care of my optics. Correctly set up backup irons, black or tritium, do not clutter the field.

    I cannot stand the clutter of a fixed rear sight and fixed front sight with a true co-witness red dot on an AR-15.

    I have never been bothered by the iron sights on a pistol with RDS, including pistols with red dots sunk down as deep as possible and with, AFAIK, the highest available suppressor-height sights.

The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire. The former are idealists acting from highest motives for the greatest good of the greatest number. The latter are surly curmudgeons, suspicious and lacking in altruism. But they are more comfortable neighbors than the other sort. "

    I can say that I honestly don't even notice the FSB on my Colt while using my red dot. 1/3 lower cowitness mounted Aimpoint T2 and I just don't notice it while concentrating on shooting.

    I meant absolute cowitness in my post.

    Iím not bothered by iron sights regardless of position when I run an RDS in a lower one-third cowitness.

    Absolute? Yes, I see your point. I find lower 1/3 co-witness is the bees-knees.

    Is it just me, or has this thread kind of drifted into the Twilight zone? I don't know, I'm new here, but ... it's been interesting.
