Many people like to run non-magnified dot optics on their carbines. There is also the trend to run them on pistols. Yet a good percentage of folks don’t know the difference between the different brands of dot optics on the market or how to best utilize the optics within their given applications. With Intro to Combat Optics, Freddie Blish covers all there is to know and then some.
Freddie is a retired Lieutenant Colonel from the United States Marine Corps, where he served 24 years. After his retirement from the Marine Corps, he served as the Director of Military Business Development for Aimpoint, Inc, where he developed an intensive training program on their use by the US Army Regional Training Center firearms instructors, US Army Mountain Warfare School, USAF Para-Rescue, and I Marine Expeditionary Force Advisory Training Teams.
In this video, Freddie reviews optics from Aimpoint, EOTech, Trijicon, Vortex, and JP Enterprises. He reviews durability, reliability, trouble shooting, optic mounts, the downed optic drill, the occluded optic drill, mechanical offset, parallax and asymmetric position, reticle tracking, optics for handguns and shotguns, and zeroing at 100, 200, and 300 meters. If you run a dot optic on your carbine/pistol or are considering it, this video is for you.
