    I bought a Simmons red dot scope. I know not the best, but it was cheap and I just wanted one to toy around with. I'm playing with the idea of putting it on my Desert Eagle .50ae for giggles. So my question is...how many shots should I be able to get out of it w/o screwing it up? Again, I know it's not an Aimpoint, but I've never shot w/a red dot and I don't want to drop hundreds of dollars if I wind up not liking them.

    It's only like $30.00, right? Might as well try it.

    i planned on finding out, i was just wondering if it would fuck up on the first magazine, last forever or fail somewhere in between.

    Might not break, but I doubt it will hold zero for very long.

    :dunno: I've seen tacpoints take a decent ammount of punishment and hold up and hold zero.

    with simmons, its hit or miss.. inconsistent quality control, but its not hard to get a decent product from them that will last for years without a problem
