Awesome- would be my choice for a semi.
Yet I’m a revolver man, Traded it for a Old 29-2
How’s that red dot working for you?
Barrel size ?
Love that look
Very nice and helpful thank you
Now that's a squirrel gun.

Which model is that? Barrel length? Scope is a crosshair?
Would a 2 MOA red dot be too small?
Like the hooded front sight if only aesthetically…was that an add on or did that come on it?
For an old guy ...me ... the red dot sight and sweet trigger job put these old eyes back to actually hitting targets again ... Got aging eyes ??? Try a red dot sight ...they work like a charm .
I've never used a 2 but I bet it would be fine, particularly for the purposes of hunting small targets requiring precise shot placement. I believe all I could find when I was researching the Venom was either 3 or 6.
The Swampfox Kingslayer works fine for me. I have been very happy with al of the red dots and rifle scoped I have purchased from Swampfox.
On the contrary, I am concerned about it all, thank you for pointing out what I forgot the added weight and balance with an optic. I think I assumed it would be difficult to get a salesman to balance a scope/dot for me to an make a adequate judgement and the weight balance was just going to be a learning curve I would have to accept. Any input I should consider when handling the pistol (to keep in my mind), before the purchase…Ie….Know the pistol will want to drop backwards or tilt fwd on the POA. Could you give me a little insight of what to expect beforehand so I can compensate in my mind when handling them? Or is all that negligible?
Pro Target, 5.5 barrel, red dot
That was original with gun, 1995 Pro Target, hooded sights
.... So there's my squirrel pistol. I want some pix of it with a squirrel !
With that all now said (I will post updates on my progression and choice) and without starting a new thread, may I ask for a link or at least specific model name/number to the traditional scope (ie. crosshair style) for a pistol? Seems googling this in itself brought up eye relief needed. Since the scope is further away than a rifle I am puzzled. I am 5’10 in. Just saying this to give reference to my arm length and am thinking I would have a light bend in my trigger hand elbow instead of straight out… Thank you everyone for vast input, I am absorbing it all and filing it to find the perfect mate for my forever and last gun.
