Phil Bourjaily over at the Gun Nuts blog did a post yesterday on the two sight solution that a number of 3-gun competitors are using. The solution is to mount a red dot sight at a slight angle from the scope. A shooter can use their scope for long range precision shots while allowing a quick close range shot with the red dot by slightly canting the rifle. Dick Metcalf showed a similar setup on an episode of Modern Rifle Adventures.
While I can see the merits of the ‘two sight solution’ in competition, I think it would be a little confusing on a hunting or tactical rifle setup. Although it does make more sense to me than mounting a red dot on top of the scope like in the photo below. What do you think?
