I have a Gl19 MOS. I was thinking of buying a red dot sight for the pistol to make use of the cutout. But since I am carrying for self defense, I was wondering if this is a good idea or if it would just make a stressful situation harder by adding more "hardware" to potentially have to deal with or go wrong at a critical moment.

What do you guys think?

Why would you need sights? You think in a defense situation you’re going to have time to align the sights and squeeze off the round? You’re going to pull that gun and point. If you’ve got time then you’ve got time to retreat and keep from having to testify in your defense in court. Just my opinion.

MOS for Carry I say no for me for defense generally 15 feet or less for me sights are faster acquisition for me and less D.A trying some fugged up charges to see what sticks. Do what you want to as I said FOR ME

You can probably count on a traditional sight picture if you are a gun-gamer. On a SD gun, I have never had the inclination to hang gadgets off of it. Criminal violence is often a very sudden and fluid monster which does not often allow for the luxury of time. In a real SD situation, point shooting is just as likely as anything else. I wouldn't put a lot of planning into any one type or style of scenario. I also do not want to rely on electronics if I am not forced to. That's just me.

I run a gun as it is configured right out of the box and other than maybe adding some night sights, I don't monkey with it.
