Optic? I still don't see that being an issue.
On optics I don't see a problem IWB.

If I am carrying a Glock I roll with their light cheap but tough and gets the job done.

OK, how do you conceal that when it's not winter in Alaska, never sit down? I can see that with a sport coat, but not casual summertime wear S/F....Ken M

I carry this under a 5.11 or blackhawk SS shirt with no issues. Granted, no optic, but a similar gun and I don't see an issue with adding an optic.



The optic would rest right on top of the holster....

TFG, I don't want to sidetrack this thread too bad, but quick question.. Do you know if that XC1 will work with holsters designed for the x300's and tlr1's, like a safariland ALS?

Unless you try it, could be anybodies guess about how snug it would be. The XC-1 noted below in the first pic is much smaller compared to the X300. It's appx. the slide width of the G19.



And again in side view.

This is my 19 with XC1. Little bit of play but not much. Vertical plays from the difference in barrel length. The holster is for a 17 with TLR.

If the slide is tight it wont matter. My G 37 with the XC 1 fits easily into my Sidearmor holster G 21 X300.

Thanks guys, that's what I figured, for a ALS type holster it is pretty much the same fit as using it with out a light attached. I'm glad I finally got to double check that before ordering one.

G20C RMR

Carrying this pistol concealed, is not graduate level work

Have you been out much? Just stop for a moment & take a look @ what's around you.

The general population is so completely oblivious as to what is around them, they can't even walk down the sidewalk w/out tripping or running into something. Don't even mention, drive a vehicle.

They all have their attention on one thing...that phone. Is it any wonder, that these active shooter events happen? You could walk into a mall w/an AK muzzle sticking 5 inches out the bottom of a jacket & no one, to include the mall ninja security, would be alerted.

Am I trying to enter a facility that has "trained" people actually looking for concealed weapons? No.

But, I also know how to move & how to dress. I blend in. To the general population, I am un-noticeable.

Best wishes and Good shooting.

+1 I notice that some of the clothing I wear, doesn't always cover my gun the way I would like (invisible). A loose-fitting t-shirt over the gun in a building prints like crazy while walking into a mall or store and the wind blowing strongly. Once inside -- no printing.

So I take everything in account and try to do things that minimize the exposure from body movements, wind, etc. As stated above -- a lot of people don't see what's around them anyway, which is completely fine with me....

Wasn't trying to sharpshoot, was wondering if there was something I was missing.

Unfortunately, this quoted section is pretty much my normal AO. I was carrying concealed in Chicago's ghettos well before it became legal. That drives my gear opinion on CCW and the whole 5.11's, photo vest, etc etc isn't really fooling anyone with half a brain. Fortunately most folks don't pass even that standard, as mentioned. S/F....Ken M

I don't see the RMR adding to the foot print all that much. I carry a G 20SF with a G10 light without issue. I also have a holster for a G 21SF with an X300, again no issues.

I know I started this thread in using Mini-red dots on handguns.

Has anyone tried one on a rifle as their primary optic?

A friend of mine use to have one of his carbines setup with a Trijicon RMR, i used it enough to get the jist of it. If you want a super lightweight setup its a good way to go, the only big con of it is the there is no fine reticle for those sights, lowest is like 4moa, other then that it worked good. For me, if i was buying a new optic for a gun, i would choose something different, like an aimpoint pro, but if i had a trijicon just lying around and needed a red dot i would be confident using it.....Pat Mac use to run that setup, not sure if he still does or not and i know he had a particular reason for it, but i don't remember that reason well enough to repeat it.

Burris Fast Fire III can be had in 3 MOA. I have it on a .44 Mag Ruger SBH, but you could easily put it on a rifle with the included picatinny rail mount.
