Not the best- depends on conditions


Fastest implies that one can't sit on the gun, nor benchrest, or bipod, standing on two legs gun shouldered, barrel at 45 deg. safety on, finger indexed. Choose any gun Ar carbine, bolt for whitetail (of course time comparisons can be corrected for cycle time). slug shotgun etc.

course of fire: 3 IPSC targets, first 10 yds to your right, 2nd 100 yds. in front and 3rd. 25 yds to your left.

starting positon, behind a barrier,

can be shot in any order, but at some time you will have to step out from the barrier and engage the far right target.

scoring by hit factor, pts divided by time.  

Would it be a circle or dot, because the eye tends to center the entire tube with the sight in the middle (ghost ring approach), or a combination of tapered posts that "point" to the middle.  (the two extremes )


Usually used by bench shooters,  a fine cross hair, with optional illumination is the fastest. Both the above require two levels of engagment, the overlay of two sight images. A fine cross hair retains the single plane, reticle and image, that is the advantage of a scope. The eye scans with tube and pushes the shot off at the over lay, both other systems require the eye to "track" one of the posts.


Awaiting arguments.

edited to say-- theres no right or wrong here or absolute- whats your experience??
