Went to the range with Top and JAG today, mostly doing pistol drills. Man, my gun handling skills with the G-Lock 19 are not very good. There's entirely too much time passing before going back to the range again.
I got about 80 rounds into my 100 round Value Pack before I got dialed in a little bit. In the end, I ended up thinking "Man, maybe I really do need the M&P..." It was worthwhile, but I really need to shoot more often.
I shot a mag through Schwaggie to check out the Po Boy Special, and found out a couple of things. First, the Po Boy is definitely worth it if you want to magnify an optical sight, but ya gotta get the tip off mount. Second, an M68/Comp M2 has a very large dot at fiddy yard. I dialed the intensity down as much as I could, but the dot still subtended the entirety of the "X" and "10" rings of the bullseye type target I was using. My windage was not squared away, but since we were getting ready to leave, I gave holding off a try. Basically, since the dot of my sight and the center of my target were about the same diameter, I just held 'em side by side, and dropped four of the six into the "X". Since there were a couple of other guys shooting, I just shot about half a mag and left them to their more- serious-than-mine blasting.
Bottom line: its impossible to beat the Po Boy if you wanna run a magnifier. I like the Aimpoint somewhat better because of its larger objective lens, but its a lot more money. If you can afford the Aimpoint, by all means, grab one. If its a little out of the price range right now, the Po Boy is the way to go.
