Man, I'm with you. I had red dotted up the Sig 365 I once owned... sold it not too long after. I really tried to like it, but am so glad I started shooting instinctive. I think anything, sights, red dots or whatever, they take time to aquire a sight picture. For range plinking with a 1911 for fun to see that ragged hole, sure. But for defense, I want to get those 2 shots on target before the bad guy knows whats going on. Not a "hold on, let me line everything up Mr bad guy" scenario.
