As a recreational shooter I have found the Aimpoint PRO to be a good balance of quality and price.

I've got a vortex strikefire and burris fastfire 2. I actually like both for different setups. My strikefire is on my Colt 6920 and ff2 on my Ruger MK1. For a pistol, the ff2 or ff3 is my recommendation. It's extremely light and has plenty of brightness levels with a multitude of mounting base options. The strikefire is much better for a long arm; shotgun or rifle. The strikefire is just a cheaper aimpoint but it is very sturdy for the price. I'm thinking about adding one to a H&R Handi Rifle in .44mag for close range hogs.

I own, and have been very happy with my Burris Fastfire III. Nothing but positive things to say about it.

Trijicon RMR on my carry pistol because it is more compact and probably the toughest sight on the market right now.

Home defense AR has a Eotech holosight.

I have the tube type on recreational rifles/pistols.
