Rastus... the Venom is very small compared to what I perceive as holographic sights... I don't have an EOTech but have an older Bushnell  I once used...  the Venom is designed to fit on an auto loader pistol slide, and comes with a 1913 rail mounting plate as well as one for a factory prepped Glock... 1 3/4 long x 1 wide x 1 1/4 high.... I have mine mounted on a 1/2" riser... I have the 3 moa dot... the battery compartment is on top, and uses a 1632 coin battery

my USAF tech school was at Goodfellow AFB, San Angelo, Tx.... was treated very well by the locals back in 1970

If the Kriss Vector handles as weird as it looks I wouldn't get one either. I'm an AR guy.

Got it on the Venom.  Looks like a good priced piece of kit.  I put a Fastfire on my son's M&P 22 a few years ago and it was cool.  I figured it would work well on a 22 for fast work..I need to look into that Venom instead.  I'm thinking jackrabbits and a 10/22 at night along a pipeline right of way would be way cool combination. 

And, San Angelo is a garden spot compared to Pyote!  I went there to meet up wtih my wife at one of the dog shows she chases from time to time.  San Angelo is a big sprawling town with water around....pretty nice place no one really knows about for such an arid area.

Oh yeah, I forgot.  So...what do you think about the Venom compared to a Trijicon RMR?  I picked up one of those year before last to drop on a Canik.  I haven't shot it much...less than 100 rounds maybe less than 50. 

And then there is the Fastfire III I bought for my son.  I need to get a venom when I get back from vacation and compare the three....

I'm a Trijicon fan boy... I have a couple 4x32s, a 1.5x16, and an older reflex...the RMR was more than I wanted to pay for a sight that was on a game gun....especially one I was not sure I would like... (the Venom replaced two SPARCS).... if I were looking for a miniature reflex for a self defense use, it would be a Trijicon RMR

I need to shoot with the RMR more than the pittance I have.  Dot sights are great and they aren't.  I generally pick up center of mass targets quicker with irons than I can the dots.  I don't have down acquiring the RMR dot quickly.

Yes I do.  Sorry about the late reply...I was packing for 3 weeks in the Pacific when you posted last.

I need to get back to the range and put the RMR through some serious paces.  I put 70 or 80 rounds through it last week.  I think part of my problem is shooting too many pistols and not settling on one or two. 

Regardless, I picked up a plate rack and several other steel targets and put them up last week.  I'm going to get serious...at least every couple of weeks over a weekend...with my shooting again.

Rastus... a couple of comments... a traditional blow back pistol caliber carbine has more recoil than a 5.56, just a lot less muzzle blast...I think a 10mm blow back would be a problem do to the high pressure and danger of rupturing a case on extraction... I have 3, 10.5" ARs configured in 5.56, and for home defense it would be my choice over a pistol caliber in terms of reliability... mine are fitted with a linear comp (LeVang) that pushes a lot of blast forward...that being said if you decide to down grade to a 9mm, I've been playing with an AR9 for about 3 years now

Rudy Koester of Macon Armory makes .45 and 10mm that are IIRC a locked breech design

my AR9 for USPSA use is a Glock format New Frontier Armory billet lower with a RRA trigger, the upper/barrel/fore end is a Palmetto State Armory with a NFA bolt with an AR style extractor,

PSA has a forged Glock format lower a friend uses, and would be my choice for a "do over" as well as a complete PSA upper and their gen4 bolt with AR extractor..

my Colt style with magazine well adapter unit on my SBR broke the last round bolt hold open after only two lock backs... my competition Glock format does not have LRBHO... the Glock magazines feed directly into the chamber from a single cartridge release where the Colt style lowers feed from a double side feed magazine and have an integral feed ramp... I recommend the Glock format

if you decide on the AR PCC I can probably help you on specific questions... please feel free to ask

Bumped to mention CMMG has a 45/10mm upper reciever.
I'm the NRA, and I ain't giving up squat.

Man those things are pricey.  I got off track with the dang virus and fixing up this old farm.  I need to get back on track with this project.
