Topic: Iron Sights or Red Dots? with Tim Herron Part 1

Riley Bowman brings on Tim Herron to discuss a topic that has been popular as of late…red dots or iron sights on handguns. Tim is a USPSA Grand Master and is a national-level top competitor in Single Stack Division. He KNOWS irons sights really well. He also trains hundreds of shooters each year through his training at TimHerronShooting.com. Riley is a bit more comfortable with red dots, but spent the last 6 weeks shooting iron sights getting ready for Production Division Nationals and will bring his perspective as well.
