Any issues with the Tacticon having wiggle room?
Great video and thanks for getting right into it.
I’m not convinced on the Tacticon, but I guess, like all things, everyone’s results may vary.
Would these work for airsoft
Dude, when you’re running your shots (multiple shots in a short time), you have terrible recoil control. Take a class or something.
Did you try any of the pinty models for $20-$35? What do you think of them?
Straight to the point!! Thanks for putting all the links to them in the description. 2A all the way. Thank you for the review.
This is the same site as the Feyachi 25
I happen to own a "Tacticon Armament Predator" style scope, under the brand name "Pinty" and with the exception of how the dot seems a little large, I am very happy with it; it’s accurate, consistent and VERY reliable 🙂
Amazing video, you earned a new sub.
GREAT job! Thanks for this.
Now I’ve gotta peek at your guitar vids. I’m a long-time player/collector. 🤠
What would you recommend for the AK style 12 guage semi automatic?
Hey Dan ! Your channel is QUICKLY becoming my favorite channel, and my homepage ! As a bass player and new gun enthusiast, this hits all the marks, and in key ! Pun intended !! – Mike
Bushnell TRS-25 will not survive a IWI TRS-25. 2 returns due to the front lense popping out.
Prices have been updated since this video.. not bad price though to be honest
For some reason, I got the Tacticon A1 and does not stay Zeroed in with my AR 15. Contacted Amazom and Tacticon and they’ll send me a new one. Hopefully the new one coming is better than what i have now.
Red dor or reflex sorry if i spell something wrong
what flip up sights are those? I need something solid but not as expensive as mbus
If you want to use the TruGlo with your AR without a riser and still co-witness with your iron sights, check out the A*B Arms Mod X hand guard. The underside of the hand guard is molded perfectly for your hand, and it has a full picatinny rail on top
I am not buying Chinese Communist goods.
Like I said. You made a very very well made video! Your a good speaker and are high pitched enough that enunciation is pretty good even as fast as you were talking. Very coherent. And Im not just hating on you. But I cant stand people getting so progressive tech-y and etc. That they are putting exhaust fans in homemade outhouses and tits on bulls.
If your merely demonstrating shock durability were you actually using 00Buckshot &/or Slugs? I know you werent with the pumpkin😉😂
Great review! Thank you buddy.
Great Dan the man with the plan!
Due to sight height, what distance would you recommend zeroing a red dot like the predator v1? Also what distance would you zero the TRUGLO due to its lower sight height?
The Bushnell is $150 now lol ffs
Gonna be getting my first rifle for Christmas. Informative and brief video. 👌🏿 Keep em coming
194k subscribers and nobody to help u throw skeet?!?!?! LOL
Do you know if there is a way to convert a .380 cobra pistol into shooting 9mm which the rounds are more readily available in this shortage and cheaper?
i just need to find a good airsoft sight
Why is God’s name are you firing .223 up into the sky over your berm????
I have questions. Like what sort of mounting options are there as in are they compatible with aimpoint mounts and risers? Are the adjustment turrets covered or able to be bumped out of zero being a non-covered turret? How long did you do testing for because many budget optics are good for an afternoon or couple of weeks then start showing signs of failures? What about brightness settings for each color of dot? Also what size of dot?
The Bushnell is 4oz and the Truglo is 7.2oz (0.45lbs), according to the links you provided, in contradiction to the info in the video. Can you clarify?
Bro this was a great video but that killer ass intro music made me subscribe!!! 👍🏾👍🏾👍🏾👍🏾
What shotgun is that??
WOW. The Bushnell is almost 2x as much now
Tasco much cheaper!
I’m looking at getting an S&W M&P AR 15 Sport 2, just curious, do You think that the Tactic Tacticon Predator V1 would work Good on it, with it having a fixed front sight..? Also, thinking about getting a magnifier, thoughts, opinions..!?
How many years of practice did it take you to shoot moving objects that you throw ? That’s AMAZING, and are you using the scopes you’re showing, or it’s too fast to use one ? Just like bass, I’m sure a lot is muscle memory. – Mike
Damn, looking at that Bushnell sight, it’s blasted upwards in price all the way above $100. Hoping it’ll drop back down, because it does look like a steal.
Dagger Defense DDHB. Can’t beat it.
A real budget video thanks lol
Dude are you from prescott? Is that out Contreras ranch rd?
TruGlo optics just always screams "turkey hunting" optics. They just haven’t got on the band wagon with a "Tacti-Cool" design.
Can any of these mount on a fixed AR carry handle??
Thanks Dan! I’ve been stewing on what to get for my KS-12. Didn’t want to spend a grip of cash, and something that won’t keep zero.
what is go-witnessing?
Any thoughts on a budget reflex site?
I want to add one to my 30-30 lever action for deer hunting. I hunt in fairly thick brush with no shot over 50yds. Usually they are moving fast.
I’ve always used iron sights but as I get older and needed bifocals that has become more difficult.
I added a reflex site to my AR and realize it works perfectly for me.
What happens if one of the caps on the end break off ? how do we get it put back on or fixed ?
