>begin shooting and notice I'm not used to finding the dot, no big deal I can just train to this
>after 100 rounds my shots are starting to go all over the place, wtf?
>check the sight and notice it has come loose even though I torqued it to spec
>decide to over torque things a bit which seems to clear up the issue, another few hundred rounds passes with no problems
>the advertised battery life is long enough that I feel fine with the sight turned on 24/7
>problem is the brightness level for this is too low for all situations (outdoors during the day) so I need to make it a bit brighter
>fast forward 2 months and I take it to the range, don't even bother to check the reticle before leaving
>the battery is DEAD
>can't use the factory iron sights because they're too low
>realize I need to buy stupid suppressor height sights as a backup, another $100
>OH and you need the right tool to replace your sights another $50
>now the ridiculously small view pane is cluttered up even more by these suppressor sights
>the sight also digs in to my body making IWB carry even more uncomfortable
>wait why am I carrying this gun again? Short distance defensive engagements? Why do I even need a red dot?
>realize I got roped in to this dumb meme by gun influencers and dropped $500 for nothing and now have a less reliable, less comfortable, more expensive system for no fucking reason.
Fuck red dots on micro pistols
