ACOG Question

I'm writing here because I bought an AR15 last week and I am absolutely loving it. I am thinking about using it to go hog hunting here in Florida and I am wondering what type of optic site I should use on it.

I see that many people who buy AR15's or build them purchase ACOG's for them. I'm here wondering if that is good for what I am trying to do (hunt hogs) and also trying to understand why so many people buy them for AR's. Is it because most people buy AR's for SHTF/HD/Range use? Or do ACOG optics also help tremendously when hunting? Any input will be appreciated!

(This thread is not trying to ask if ACOG's are worth $1000, I am asking what is it most often bought for and used for.)

The short answer would be for rapid target aquisition.

No need to cross pollinate...you already asked this question (http://www.thehighroad.org/showthread.php?t=603874) and got good answers.

If those suggestions aren't what you wanted to hear, then go buy what you want and be done with it.

No offense intended.
