Just out of curiosity, have any of you fine fellows and gals played around with a green dot sight? I know from shooting target archery for many years that the human eye usually sees green fiber optic pins better than red, and I'm wondering if that transfers over to dot sights.
Do the green dots stay more visible in bright sunlight, or do they wash out just as badly?
My Burris 5X fixed has both. I find myself using the green more often....like by magnitudes more often
I lean towards the green every chance I get. I see the green better in daylight or lowlight,
The visible light spectrum goes between blue and red; hence Emergency vehicle lights are these colors. As I understand it, typical color blindness affects a narrow band of color. So, like EMS lights, sight colors are at (nearly; green is next to blue) the opposite end of the visible spectrum. I suppose blue might be too dark to easily pick up???
So, if you strongly lean one way, you may have a little color blindness in the opposite spectrum. Or, if not, you can use either.
Anyone here know more on this? I’d be very interested in learning more. Thanks👍🏻
