    For the reasons Greg mentioned.

    Also, I just like the Dual Illum dot (as opposed to the triangle) a lot. I have mild astigmatism and the dual isn't affected the way the LEDs are for me. I prefer a smaller dot on pistols, and if the dual illum just came in a smaller dot I'd probably put them on everything I have. (And honestly the 7 is great for pistols too, I just like the smaller dots and the LEDs are not affected by washout conditions the way the dual is)

    I think the 7moa is a great size for the shotgun, not too small and not too big.

    I also kind of like the ring on the Holosun for shotguns. I still prefer the RMR but I can live with the holosun.

    My 1st choice for a PCC is an Aimpoint Micro. Either a H-1 or T-1 depending on needs and usage.

    I will show the Jungle Gun at the class. It has a triangle green RMR by happenstance, but that offers some interesting things.

    I'm leaning towards triangle for potential for slug shots. Corners for fine sighting, but big " dot" for closer range, fast engagement.

    I can’t comment on the green triangle model as I have not worked with them in low light conditions. I can tell you that the amber triangle is completely worthless in low/no light. The tip of the triangle works great for pinpoint accuracy; I had one on a 357 sig and it was great past 100 yards. But in low light you are working with only irons.

    The amber dot does not have this problem, which is why that is the one I recommend over the triangle.
